_dsc6826-copyJoin Payton in her fundraising efforts for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan! Payton knows what it is like to spend time in the hospital, and how scary it can be. She is raising money to make the hospital a happier place for kids!

Payton was only six years old when she developed severe unexplained tummy pain. One morning, she woke up with extreme leg pain and had difficulty walking.

Unknowingly, Payton was battling hundreds of tumors in her small body and was diagnosed with stage 4 B cell (pre-B) Lymphoblastic Leukemia/lymphoma in October 2014. She spent the next 41 days isolated in the hospital. After several procedures, tests and scans, she began intense chemotherapy which went on for 11 months.  One of the hardest parts of this journey was being away from her little brother Beckham during the overnight stays at the hospital.

In September 2015, Payton began maintenance treatments that will continue until 2017. Payton and her family have moved home to Estevan and are returning to a normal routine. Even though she is only scheduled to be in clinic once a month, with the rest of her medications being taken at home, she has been back in hospital several times.

Payton has started The Cancer Sucks Project.  She is talking to schools and groups about her journey living in hospital and surviving cancer.  She just wants to talk, kid to kid and let them know that cancer and hospitals do not have to be scary.   “Some kids think cancer is contagious…. they need to know that it isn’t.”

Along the way, she is selling suckers and collecting donations for the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
