DAD & SON Both Confront Life-Limiting Conditions

Donation protected
For those that have donated, I’m truly grateful for each and every one of you. I am sincerely thankful for your heartfelt words and generosity. 

Dear friends,

My name is Greg, and I am a very proud dad of two...Elizabeth & Jack.

I am battling aggressive cancer, with an initial prognosis of 6 months.

In addition, my little guy Jack was born with severe disabilities and life-limiting conditions. 

Unfortunately, he will be fully dependent on others for the rest of his life.

 My daughter once asked me "Dad, can the government take Jack away from us because we can't afford him?" From that day forward, it has been my sole purpose in life to create a legacy for my kids, especially Jack, for when the time comes for me to leave this world.


 We are planning, organizing, and hosting a “Rock Out 4 Jack” fundraising event for our son and brother, Jack.
And we would love to share our storied journey with you.   

Meet Jack. 

Jack is a young Stittsville boy who was born with CHARGE Syndrome; a rare and life-limiting disorder that arises during early fetal development & affects multiple organ systems.

Jack is Tracheostomy dependent, has a feeding tube insertion and is deaf-with vision impairment.

He has had 20 surgeries to date (#21 coming soon). Jack has had numerous admissions to CHEO totaling over 2 years, and he also requires 24-hour nursing care.

Jack was subsequently diagnosed with severe autism and continues to battle epilepsy…at one point over 100 visible seizures daily were common.   

His mom has not been able to work since Jack was born, as she is Jack's primary nurse. And his dad is battling guarded, high-risk cancer.

The family is without private insurance; the costs of little Jack’s life sustaining medical supplies alone (tracheostomy & enteral feeding) are astronomical.    

Our fundraising endeavour, ROCK OUT 4 JACK Sports & Pop-Culture Online Silent Auction, will occur on the Pristine Auction platform (www.pristineauction.com), beginning August 1st, 2022, and will continue throughout the year.

Pristine was voted 2021 Auction House of the Year, and it currently hosts over 500,000 active members.   

We would be ever so thankful if you were able to kindly support our family, with a gift-in-kind donation for our silent auction, which would mean the world to us!    

Jack’s Silent Auction is hosted by his “Rock Out 4 Jack” page. All donors will be gratefully acknowledged on this public event. 

We would love for you to join us in following the journey of an inspiring young boy:

You are our hope, by rallying around Jack and his quality of life. We are grateful to each donor that chooses to contribute to Jack’s baby steps, mini-miracles, and milestones.    

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please reach out to me at your convenience. I will be more than happy to answer.    

With love – Gregory Brown, Susan, Elizabeth & Jack
