Please help Wade MacLeod fight Brain Cancer

We would like to start by telling you about this incredible young man, Wade MacLeod and his beautiful young family. 

Wade is 31 years old and has spent his entire life dreaming of being a husband, and father while playing in the NHL.  This dream almost came true 5 years ago, but while playing for Springfield Falcons in the AHL, Wade suffered a grand mal seizure on the ice, which led to the discovery of the first tumour.   Wade returned to the game a year later, after undergoing  brain surgery to remove the tumour.  Following surgery, Wade lost the ability of speech and spent 3 months undergoing speech therapy.   His dream of being a husband and father has come true with a beautiful wife, Karly and 11 month old baby girl, sweet Ava James.  Wade’s courage and unwavering determination to be a loving husband and father and still play the game he loves so much has been an inspiration to us all.  Since then, Wade’s tumour has relentlessly grown back 3 times.  Each time, Wade returned to the game but his dream of playing in the NHL was over. 

Wade was going to return to playing hockey in Dresden, Germany, this August.  That dream was dashed as our dear friend Wade MacLeod is now preparing to have his 4th brain surgery in less than 5 years.

He has a Grade 3 Glioblastoma tumour and it has come back, once again, with a vengeance, after going through surgery only 2 months ago!

What this means for Wade and his family, is that they have to incur all prescription costs that he will have to take his entire  lifetime as well as any treatments outside of his basic medical services plan, which is weighing heavily on their finances and they will not be able to sustain the strain with no income.

 Wade’s recovery would be so much easier without the financial strain as he is no longer able to provide for his family.

Thank-you for taking time to read this and consider funding to this cause.

Hello All,

There has been some suspicious donations to Wade's fund in the last 24 hours that we are dealing with. It seems that in a time where so many are doing there part to help Wade and Karly, there are still not very nice people out there trying to profit from their situation.

Between these people, there has been 35 bogus donations totaling $ 21,528 dollars. Because of this, our total raised for Wade is not correct.

I will keep everyone posted as we deal with GoFundMe on this issue.

Thank you all for your support and keep sharing Wade's story.

Best Regards,

Mike Armstrong
