A child in our community needs our help–
A 7 year old boy named Jared, was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) in November 2014. He has a tumor located in the area of the brain that controls breathing, talking, walking, swallowing, heartbeat and all elements of survival.
The tumor is inoperable. There is no medication or cure for DIPG.
Jared’s family is looking for alternative therapies. These therapies are costly and not covered by our Medicare system.
On March 29th, 2015 from 3:00 pm-4:30 pm, please bring your family and friends to a SKATE-A-THON at the Dollard Civic Center – Rink #3 (12001 boulevard de Salaberry, Dollard-des-Ormeaux). All children must wear helmets on the ice. We are asking for a minimum donation of $5.00 per skater for this worthwhile cause. All of the proceeds will be used to offset the mounting costs of alternative therapy for this very special child.
If you are unable to attend the fundraiser, you can still help Jared.
Click here to learn more about how you can donate. A tax deductible receipt will be issued for all donations above $15.00.
Your donations will be most appreciated!
For any questions, please call 514-683-5610.
Please include Jared and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
