My Message

The Fighting Eagle Tournament was created to remember my friend Alex, his energy, laughter and his love of hockey. Alex was diagnosed with undifferentiated sarcoma in 2012. Throughout 2012 and into 2013, he underwent treatments of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, all while going to school and playing hockey. Alex passed away in April of 2013, but he will never be forgotten and his spirit lives on in my memories.

This year we are supporting SickKids Cancer Sequencing Program:
In 2016, SickKids established the Kids Cancer Sequencing Program (KiCS). This was an opportunity to take advantage of our genetic expertise to improve outcomes for kids with relapsed or hard-to-treat cancers. SickKids analyses the genetic make-up of a child’s cancer. Using this information specific to a patient’s cancer, treatment options can be identified. Early results show that over 50% of those children with hard-to-treat cancers will have a change in their diagnosis or treatment. With the support of our donors, SickKids can continue to offer improved treatments and new hope to patients and their families who are in desperate need of better options.
