Jaxon's medical fund

As many of our friends and family know, my 4 year old God son Jaxon  was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor in February 2017. Because of its location the tumor is inoperable. It affects his swallowing and breathing and Jaxon has had a G Tube implanted into his stomach so that food and liquids can be safely taken and his swallowing doesn’t become a bigger issue.

Jaxon has been quite the super hero in all of this. The medical plan of action is weekly chemo treatment of Vinblastine for a  duration of 70 weeks. With MRI's in between to see what success the treatment is having. The goal is to shrink this tumor but at best keep it contained as he will live with this for the rest of his life.

This means weekly trips to Mcmaster hospital which can become costly when you consider gas, parking, hospital stay, food etc..

In April Jaxon was submitted to Mcmaster for 13 days. Their hospital bill came to $3500.  Both parents were out of work to care for their son, so you can imagine how difficult and stressful this would be to receive something like this.

I have visited him and his family many times throughout this ordeal and with everything this poor little angel has been through, the one thing that never changes is his beautiful smile.  He has such a big heart and shows so much compassion.  

If there is one thing we can do to help their family through what is in my opinion a parents "worst nightmare" than hopefully it is this.

So it is with humility and a thankful heart, that I am asking for  some help from our friends, family and community members to help lessen the burden brought on by these medical expenses.
