Meet Daxton

This 5 1/2 year old warrior was diagnosed September, 2019 with B-Cell Leukemia. Daxton and his family live outside of Edmonton and have had lengthy stays in the city for treatment, as well as currently staying at Papa Ken's House for his monthly follow-ups. Daxton's sister, Khloe, has been an incredible support for her brother, a reminder that a childhood cancer diagnosis impacts the entire family. 

Prior to COVID-19, the family was able to take part in many of the Kids with Cancer Society's family events and programs including, Share the Joy, counselling support, financial assistance when needed, and Papa Ken's House for follow-up appointments. 

Daxton has used this time during the pandemic to get his beaded journey updated. This young man has seen a lot of beads in his short time—truly a testament to the strength he and his family exhibit everyday.

Thank You Canada Post Community Foundation

With generous support from the Canada Post Community Foundation to the Childhood Cancer Survivor Program, we are able to provide opportunities for children to thrive in their future endeavors. Every child deserves a chance to reach their full potential. By tackling issues directly related to cancer and cancer treatments early, the better chance the child will have at gaining the skills necessary to navigate the world and set them up for success. Our goal is to ensure that no child fights their cancer battle alone—during and after treatment. Thank you Canada Post Community Foundation for giving our children with cancer a voice.

“Having cancer as a child was horrible and at times, I don’t feel I can deal with anything else and am afraid of what the future might bring. The Survivors Program always takes care of me and gives me the tools and experiences that I need so that I can just be like any other teenager. I deserve a job, a life, and friends this is why it is important. Thank you from the bottom of my heart”. – Childhood cancer survivor
