Army Navy Strong
It comes as no surprise that Jillian’s Army is still fighting strong against Childhood Cancer. This past weekend, Army soldiers came together to help us get a head start on donations for an upcoming Childhood Cancer karaoke fundraising show to benefit St. Baldrick’s Foundation. This is the third annual show, but the first to support St. Baldrick’s. There are a number of worthwhile Childhood Cancer charities to support making it hard to pick just one. Thank you Gil, Dianna, Sheryl, Krystal and Will for the early donations. The show will be Wednesday, September 27th from 6-10 pm at Sunset Downtown in Henderson, NV.
St. Baldrick’s allowed us to choose “honored kids” to feature on the fundraiser webpage, and we choose Jillian and another neuroblastoma fighter from the Henderson area named Navy. Navy’s mom reached out to Amber while going through the diagnosis process as she remembered her and Jillian from their previous hospital stays. For such a “rare” cancer, this happened quite a few times throughout the years since Jillian was diagnosed.
Unfortunately during recent routine scans, Navy’s family got the news that she has relapsed. We are all so saddened to hear this news and ask that Jillian’s Army send prayers and positive thoughts to Navy and her family.
As always, the fight against Childhood Cancer continues. We need awareness not just during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September but all year long. We appreciate you continuing to follow Jillian’s Army and give you our traditional SALUTE!
