All In for Julia's Journey to Beat Cancer

All In for Julia's Journey to Beat Cancer

This is Julia she is 13 years old. She has been recently diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma which is a type of bone cancer mostly found in children. She has just started her first rounds of chemotherapy.

Julia’s Journey is going to be a long process but she is a strong young girl who in her own words says “I can fight through this; actually no I can beat cancer. I’m staying as strong as I can be”

As we all know many expenses occur while being in the hospital. On March 29th my family and I are holding a fundraiser in her honour.

Please help Julie Beat Cancer

    Larry, the owner of my company (Madison Homes) will give me a cheque for a donation of $180 on Monday (it is passover so they were not able to do it this week). I can mail it to you or give it to you at Rocky's next game - whatever works better for you.

    I hope a lot of people show up for this. What a terrible thing for a 13 year old to have to go through and how devasting for her family.

      I am also putting a $50 bounty on my own head that night to the first person that takes all my chips. If any of my fellow league players have anything they can donate to the raffle it would be much appreciated, please let me know this Friday. Kristy and I would like to thank Rocky and MaryAnn for helping us with this difficult journey for Julia. We hope to see everybody there on Friday March 29th.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
