Hi, My name is Jaxon Wade. For my 10th birthday this year, I am asking my family and friends to support my team in the 1st annual Syd Strong Kancer Jam instead of birthday presents. I want to raise $2000 in the next 2 weeks to honor someone that I loved. Even after Sydney got sick, she still had time to spend with me, with a smile on her face. Won't you share her smile by donating to a cause so close to my families heart. I am #SydStrongForever
A message from Jessica Maday:
Sydney,21, was often described as having an infectious smile, charming personality, and was a bright beam of light. After her leukemia diagnosis(AML) in 2016,she fought a long and brave battle. She received exceptional care from the Medical City Dallas Oncology teams and inspired many with her positive outlook, strength, and fight.
Sydney loved everything Disney, which inspired the SydStrong logo for our Kancer Jam Tournament.
Sydney's passing on December 25, 2018 devastated so many of us and there isn't a day that goes by thaat we all won't think of her. Although this Kancer Jam was planned with Sydney still here, I have no doubt that she will be smiling down on us from heaven as we play and have fun to help raise money to give others hope in her honor. All of the money raised will be donated to the Jam Kancer in the Kan Foundation and from there donated to a charity as a tribute to Sydney.
Let's jam in Sydney's memory and help other families and kids battling this disease!
