There are no "do-overs"
This month we'd like to introduce you to ASK kid Jack, one of our 2016 Kourageous Kids.
Between too many missed days of school and not getting to enjoy play dates with friends, Jack's childhood is not average but it's one that other ASK kids can relate to. We were happy to hear from Jack's mom, Stephanie, who shares that he is starting to get his childhood back:
Jack has just started his second year of treatment of a three year therapy for Lymphoblastic Lymphoma of his kidneys. While he as has endured a grueling year of chemotherapy, his positive attitude and perseverance have been an inspiration to his family and friends.
These days he's feeling great, full of energy and excited to be transitioning back to school after being out the past year.
Jack loves ASK and just about every activity they offer, but he truly enjoyed the enrichment camp this summer- the first event he as able to attend after diagnosis that allowed him to do something exciting and normal.
We are excited to be gearing up for our second ASK 5K and formulating a bigger Team Jack!
Even though cancer has deprived Jack of so many typical childhood experiences, ASK makes sure all of our kids have great memories in the midst of their treatment. Click the button below to read about our patient programs and how you can help.
