Our son, Logan, who is battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, is raising money for Cancer Fit to help support children like him who are dealing with the effects of cancer and chemotherapy.
Last spring Logan was diagnosed with Stage 1 Hodgkin's at age 13. Needless to say, this was devastating to Logan and our entire family. It’s still difficult and a bit overwhelming to believe that this has happened to him.
Logan suffered a very difficult summer with surgery and chemo. He lost all his hair and was quarantined for 4 months (all summer) because his immune system was so severely compromised. The chemo left him sick, weak, and easily fatigued. His ability to do any physical activity was very limited, both because of the terrible effects of the chemo (which we will not show photos of here because they are painful to see) and because he had a picc line surgically implanted into his arm to deliver the chemo. Fortunately, Logan has responded very well so far to treatment and he is on the road to recovery.
Cancer Fit is an amazing 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is helping kids like Logan who are battling cancer. It offers exercise and wellness programs for children with cancer to help alleviate the harsh effects of treatment. It also offers an MVP Sports Draft program, which pairs kids with local athletic teams to offer additional support.
Logan is passionate about two things: playing basketball (on the court), and playing basketball on the PS4. When Cancer Fit learned about Logan several months ago, they immediately arranged to get him a professional gaming chair so he could better enjoy gaming during his recovery.
More recently, Cancer Fit teamed up with CLU Men’s Basketball, who then "drafted" Logan as an honorary member of the Kingsmen. This is an event that he (and we) will never forget! Logan will soon be honored at CLU’s home game on Saturday, January 25, at 2 pm to support him in his battle with Hodgkin’s, and to raise awareness regarding childhood cancer.
With these kind gestures, Cancer Fit has made a positive difference in Logan’s life. Through Cancer Fit’s unique programs, they help improve the lives of children battling cancer – something no child should have to face.
We are very proud of Logan! He has shown incredible courage and resilience this past year facing his illness. He has remained positive throughout, and he realizes that if he can face cancer at age 13 (and now 14), he can accomplish anything. We are also proud that he wants to try to help other children who might be facing even more difficult challenges and whose prognoses might not be as positive as his.
Logan is asking you to consider a charitable (tax deductible) donation to Cancer Fit to help other kids like him. His goal is to reach $2,500 in donations by the game on January 25!
Please consider even a small donation to help support Logan reach his goal!
