2009: Our family hosted the first Jack's Fight for a Cure gala 9 months after Jack was diagnosed with Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a sold out event
that raised over $50,000 for DBA research.
2011: The second Jack's Fight for Cure gala was also sold out and thanks again, to incredible support of our sponsors, donors and attendees, raised another $50,000.
2013: Jack's Fight For A Cure gala, unsurprisingly, sold out, and brought our total of funds for Diamond Blackfan Anemia Canada and
the hospital for Sick Children to over $150,000 for DBA Research.
2016: The most recent Jack's Fight For A Cure gala was again a sold out event featuring a hypnotist, live and silent auction, fun carnival type games
and loads of fun. A hugely successful event bringing our total TO DATE to over $200,000 for DBA Research
We are in awe of the support so far over the years and are especially grateful for our loyal and longstanding supporter ESSO and now Circle K past and present owners who has generously donated and been on board since 2009 and continue to do so.
Although significant research has happened over the past 7 years, we are still a long way from a cure and better treatment options.
