Hope, Strength, and Healing for families coping with a child cancer diagnosis

Keaton’s Kiddo Jayvon ~ Celebrating a Huge Milestone

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, they embark upon a unique and unpredictable journey. Jayvon’s experience is no exception. Shortly before the holidays, Jayvon’s mom sadly and unexpectedly lost her battle against her own cancer journey. Although he has dealt with a lot of hardship from his own diagnosis and loss of his mother, he never once lost touch of his special personality and goofy sense of humor. With a lot of love and support from his family, Jayvon’s resiliency continues to shine bright!

Last week marked a very special milestone for Keaton Kiddo Jayvon! In July 2021, Jayvon was sadly diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, a rare tumor of the head and neck, but recently finished the last of his treatments and his cancer is no longer detectable in his body!

Since the beginning of his journey, Keaton’s has had the honor of supporting Jayvon and his family with a financial grant and food cards to help ease stress while Jayvon fought his battle. Most recently, Keaton’s had the opportunity to spread joy to this family for the holidays when they were referred to our Adopt-A-Family Program. The Family Navigator Team looks forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with this family through follow-up calls and future family events.

Thank you Jayvon and your sweet family for allowing Keaton’s to be a part of this HUGE milestone celebration!
