THE STORY:

For the last 2 years we have been lucky enough to be a part of this wonderful group... We have raised over $50,000 in 2 years by Jamming Kancer in the Kan.. It is an amazing event born from 4 amazing people and we are honored to be a part of it.. This event has always held a special place in our hearts as our friends have come together to have a great time and raise a lot of money for a great cause!! Sometimes Life throws you a curve ball.. On June 8th, after many tests and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) we received the difficult news that our 11 year old son Kyle was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. We were informed that it is a highly curable form of cancer but we would have to go through a difficult process.. As difficult as that news was, we immediately received a call from Darlene, the social worker at CHOP Oncology... Her exact words were "We are sorry that you are here but now you are family, we will take great care of Kyle and your family".. From the moment we arrived at CHOP, on Friday June 10th we were treated like family and they made us feel very comfortable with the process we were about to go through.. We met with Dr. Nick, the amazing oncologist that would handle Kyle's care.. He got right on Kyle's level and said "We will cure this, it is just going to be a different summer than you thought.. If you have to have cancer, this is literally the one you would pick.." Kyle started his chemotherapy treatment on the last day of school, June 22nd.. The care he received from his personal nurse, Amanda and all the other nurses as well as the doctors and nurse practitioners was above and beyond incredible.. The social work team kept us informed with everything and the child specialist kept Ella busy.. He had some difficult days with the treatment but the staff at CHOP did everything they could to make him as comfortable as possible.. He is doing great and the Doctors feel great about his progress. We are at the end of the chemo treatments and will await test results to determine any next steps.. One of the difficult part of our journey was seeing all the other kids, some babies that were being treated at the CHOP Oncology and Hematology Department. We do know they are receiving wonderful care. A month or so ago the Goldberg's and the Crimmins came to us and said they would like to make CHOP the beneficiary of Jam Kancer in the Kan because "They are treating one of our own" I can't express enough how much that meant to us and how much we appreciate all of our friends support! We have always felt the importance of raising money for a cause like this but now we know how much it means.. We were asked by the Goldberg's and Crimmins where specifically we would like this money to go.. We deferred to Kyle and he feels strongly about directing it right to the Voorhees location where he was treated.. He knows that they need $$ for research as well as more grass roots items.. Please consider making a donation, no matter how small to help this wonderful hospital that has done so much for us.. Thank You, The Brainard Family
