Recently Clarington Minor Football held our annual cancer awareness day.
Everything we raised went to a family battling cancer and here is their story:
Malignant melanoma. Two small words that have changed the entirety of our 6 year old little girls life. Two words that we never fathomed would be used frequently in our vocabulary.
Our daughter had a little freckle like mark one her arm that grew larger and larger. We pushed for answers and opinions over the course of a year. It wasn't until the third doctor we demanded to see decided to remove it that he discovered what we were really dealing with. Cancer. Our baby girl has cancer.
Upon further biopsy we discovered the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes in her arm pit and possibly her lung. Statistically speaking, this happens to approximately 1 child every 10 years according to the oncologist at the Hospital for Sick Children. Our daughter has undergone 3 skin grafts (2 of which failed) with her own skin, and one with cadaver skin. She now has a chest port so she can receive her 26 biweekly doses of immunotherapy. She turned 6 the week before her first dose, and won't finish until she turns 7.
Our daughter's bravery, strength, and positive energy has pulled us all through this unfortunate time. Football is a true reflection of life. There are wins, there are losses. You get knocked down, you get back up!
We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful event that you all worked so hard to plan. The love and support you have shown is truly heart warming. We really have no words to describe how incredibly grateful we are.
Her game has only just begun but with 46 brave bantom and peewee Knights coming to her rescue, our little princess will surely tackle cancer!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You have all truly made such a difference in our lives.
