The Story

This fundraiser is for an amazing and brave little boy, Calvin Klassen-Parent, who is currently at Sick Kids in London battling cancer (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) since January 13, 2015.

Calvin is only 5-years-old and has been through more in the past two months than most people go through in their entire life. I can't even begin to imagine what Calvin and his family are going through; it brings me to tears just thinking about him. My son and I are friends of Calvin and his mother, Bonnie - I have seen first-hand the struggle Calvin is going through and it breaks my heart.

Please, I urge you to think if this was your child. Calvin is a wonderful, strong and absolutely amazing little boy. Everyday for Calvin is a challenge right now and he still has a rough road ahead of him before he starts feeling better.

I am pleading to each and every person who reads this to donate now! Every cent raised is going directly to support Calvin through this difficult time.

It's up to you now to show your support. Together, we can make all the difference!

Thank you for taking the time to make a donation and show your support for Calvin. Every prayer and every cent matters!

I have been trying to track down the person who donated $3,000 on behalf of the Mucci Farms Family as the donation was made anonymously. I just want to extend a sincere thank you to Mucci Farms for your generous donation - it has made a tremendous difference in our fundraising efforts. What a beautiful sign of community caring :-)
