Jams 4 JJ: April 21 @ Grey Eagle Casino

Help Save A Life

On December 10, 2015 our friend and colleague Jane Fuller received news that no parent ever wants to hear: her 15-month old son JJ had cerebral palsy. An MRI found that he had a brain bleed and stroke in utero resulting in brain damage and malformation. After months of being told that he may never crawl, walk or speak, something inside Jane snapped: There had to be a way for her to help JJ fight for a better life. And fight they would ...

After exhaustive research, Jane came across a world renowned, private facility in Toronto, Ontario called Health in Motion Rehabilitation (H.I.M.R). This was JJ's chance at a better life and they jumped in with everything they had -- including a significant financial commitment. JJ spent 4 weeks attending the intensive L.I.F.E program. It was grueling and would test both mother and child. But the impact was unbelievable - just visit our event page on Facebook to see. JJ made incredible progress ... totally life-altering actually.

Jane and JJ have done enough of the fighting alone. As the treatment is not covered by health care, her friends and colleagues are now trying to raise money to ensure this brave boy can continue attending sessions in Toronto from Oct 15 - Nov 9. Anyone who knows Jane knows how hard it is for her to ask for help, but JJ’s future quality of life is her number one priority and so we are throwing a special evening to help her raise the funds to continue JJ's path to a brighter future. There will be live music featuring Calgary rock band Red Dawn, food, amazing door prizes, drinks, laughter and yes ... JJ himself will be there to share his 1000-watt smile.

Entire proceeds from the sale of the tickets will go to the fund for JJ and his L.I.F.E program.

If you can't attend we encourage to either buy a ticket or donate directly at:

Doors open at 7 pm. Red Dawn will hit the stage at 7:45 pm.

Thank you to everyone for your contributions especially Red Dawn for providing entertainment.
