GO Gold to Cure Childhood Cancer!

The Blue Bombers tonight will be playing for their toughest little fans!

The Manitoba Fearless Family knows first hand the challenges that children and their families face when a child is diagnosed and the child begins a battle that no child should have to fight. 2 Defensive Line players on the Fearless look tough on the field but they are tougher than that. Both are helping a young child with their battle which is tougher than anything they would face on the field.

Please support the cause tonight at the Bomber Game to help children like Colby and Hailey!

 Colby, Son of Dlineman Darla                    Hailey, Niece of Dlineman Tanis


Colby was 5 when diagnosed with stage 3 cancer after a nasty bike fall revealed a large tumor enclosed around his kidney...I will never forget the trauma surgeon's grim look as she said this is both the best and worst day of your child's life.  Had the tumor not been found by accident Colby's life would have been short....our 14 month journey with cancer treatments  began very soon. Though Colby has made it through many infections/complications of chemotherapy his recovery is not done . As 2/3 of child cancer patients do live with the after affects  of their treatment, Colby is being attended to by kidney specialists and others to find his new quality of life. And as every cancer parent knows any day off chemo and out of the hospital is a priceless gift never to be taken for granted. That is why we need to do  everything possible to give these kids the best chance of surviving the vicious beast that is cancer . I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your thoughts and prayers ..

Hailey Mykietowich was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) February 2012, shortly before her 3rd birthday; March 24. She is now 4 years old. The past year and a half, the family has gone through some ups and downs but they are surrounded by love and support from family and friends which have made the tough times easier. Hailey enjoyed playing in her first season of soccer this past spring. She is a bright young girl and is eager to start Kindergarten next year. Seeing a smile on her face is truly amazing.

Join the fight to help Hailey and Colby Kid Cancer's BUTT!!!
