Huntre is a wonderful 9 year old boy who is in for the fight of his life.  In January of this year, he began having serious physical symptoms - severe headaches, loss of coordination, vision problems and shakiness. Huntre was sent by ambulance from Windsor's Met Hospital to London's Sick Kids Hospital, where he stayed for several months. He endured countless MRIs, spinal taps, scans and medical procedures. He was treated for what the doctors thought was Lyme Disease, and then for an autoimmune disorder.  After his symptoms worsened this summer, further testing showed that Huntre did not have Lyme disease. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma Brain Cancer, a rare brain cancer with no cure. The prognosis for Huntre was very discouraging.  This past August, he underwent 3 major surgeries on his brain, all within days of each other.  During this time,  it was touch and go, and the doctors did not think he would survive.  Huntre has defied all odds, and has fought incredibly hard. This fall, he endured 5 day-a-week radiation therapy for 6 consecutive weeks.  Last week, Huntre began a 10-month chemotherapy regiment that has left him very ill.  Additional tests show 2 more tumours that the doctors will have to remove. His mom Lisa is supporting 3 other children. She has been a pillar of strength for Huntre, never once leaving his side, and continuously advocating for him. Lisa is facing financial difficulties as she has been unable to work.  We are hoping this Go Fund Me page will bring awareness to this family’s tragic situation.  No donation is too small. We are forever grateful for any contribution that will allow Lisa and the family to focus on Huntre’s quality of life, and to enjoy the time they have with him. Please take a moment to share this campaign in support of Huntre and his family. Thank you.

Huntre has been nothing but strong and inspirational through this entire ordeal. However, despite his incredibly heroic efforts, Huntre has hit yet another obstacle. Symptoms have returned, and have made Huntre's progress significantly regress. Due to this, another trip to London for further testing was necessary. Unfortunately, doctors have found two more markings on Huntre's brain. At this time, the family is waiting for treatment options. We continue to ask for your love and prayers for Huntre and his family.

We would like to share with you the news that we have been praying for! Huntre's scans from his visit to London Sick Kids this past Thursday show that everything remains stable, and there are no new tumours! Huntre is loving his time at school where he is surrounded with lots of love. We are very grateful for all your support and prayers.

Our prayers were answered as Huntre Allard, a Grade 4 student at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Elementary School who is battling brain cancer, came back to school today after being cleared by his doctors. Huntre has already been through two surgeries in London, but with a tremendous amount of love and support from family, friends, his school community, and his health care team, he battled back and returned to class this morning. When Huntre's mother pulled up in front of the school a little after 9:30 am, all 320 students and staff members were waiting out front with a massive banner, cheering his return. When he went into his classroom, Huntre and his classmates enjoyed some homemade cupcakes decorated like a John Deere tractor (Hunter loves all things John Deere). A fundraiser is being held for Huntre and his family on March 23 at 5 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 148, 1570 Marentette Ave. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children under 10, and can be obtained by phoning 226-344-9476.
