MacKids Walk & Wheel Ambassadors - Chase
It all began with a persistent fever and weight loss. On the recommendation of his pediatrician, nine-year-old Chase from Cambridge was taken to McMaster Children’s Hospital. Testing led to a diagnosis of leukemia, and Chase began a regimen of intense chemotherapy to control the growth of cancer cells.
“One of the most difficult things for Chase is being sidelined from the sports he loves,” says his mother, Jaymie. “He’s had to miss a lot of baseball and soccer because of the cancer.”
Chase’s prognosis is very positive and he is doing well in his treatment. As he continues to regain strength, Chase looks forward to spending more time playing sports. He is grateful for the outstanding care he received at McMaster Children’s Hospital, which has become like a second home to him.
Chase is proud to be a MacKids Ambassador for this year’s MacKids Walk & Wheel on June 1, a fundraising event presented by RBC in support of McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation. Learn more about MacKids Walk & Wheel at mackids.ca/walkandwheel.
