Cancer is no match for Ben's strength.



Each bead in Ben’s necklace (pictured with his ‘Brave Ben’ shirt) represents a surgery/procedure Ben has undergone at SickKids. The full necklace (which we will continue to add to) represents his unique and special treatment journey. Although this has been a challenging journey, cancer is no match for Ben’s strength and bravery.

Ben, our son/nephew, was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma (cancer in the eyes) in late March of this year. Ben has received (and continues to be treated) with exceptional care from the Retinoblastoma team at SickKids Hospital. We (Ben’s parents and aunt/uncle) are running a relay marathon to raise money for the team treating Ben to support research for existing and future children with Retinoblastoma. We will be running this marathon in early October, around the time of Ben’s 9th round of chemotherapy. Our marathon will be a modest effort relative to the challenges our brave Ben overcomes daily. We appreciate your consideration of support of the medical miracle team at SickKids Hospital. We will feel you cheering us on as we run for SickKids and in honour of Ben.
