Please help Jadon help the children that are patients at Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
One year ago, our son Jadon was a healthy, energetic, and athletic 8th grader. He was an outstanding lacrosse player preparing for his first year in high school. Jadon started with flu like symptoms. We thought he was sick with a stomach virus. After weeks of being sick, losing weight, many tests/blood work and a hospital admission, he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. During this past year, Jadon has been in the hospital three different times. We are fortunate enough to have the best hospital in the world within driving distance. With the help of the wonderful doctors and nurses at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, Jadon is feeling much better and is stable enough to play high school lacrosse.
Jadon wants to give back to other children/teenagers that may have to go thru the same thing he did. It was his idea to organize a lacrosse game for high school age boys and girls that will raise money for the Johns Hopkins Children's Center and bring awareness about Crohn's and Colitis. The money raised from this fundraiser will be used to purchase toys, books, games and other items for patients of the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
