Since 2014

In July 2013 Clarkie was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that affects 250 people a year.

After struggling with leg pain throughout his spring lacrosse season, he finally got an MRI. It showed a mass in his upper right femur. Clarkie’s treatment involved 34 weeks of chemotherapy and surgery to remove the top half of his femur and replace it with a titanium prosthesis and donor bone.

Throughout treatment Clarkie amazed everybody with his strength, positivity, sense of humor and resilience. Our good friend and cancer survivor, Matt Smalley, told Clarkie that he needed to battle through his treatments, stay strong, stay positive, be healthy and do his best to achieve the small victories throughout this process. Clarkie followed those words of wisdom and completed treatment in May 2014.

The money raised by the Team Clarkie Fund will ensure that researchers receive the resources needed to make significant strides towards finding a cure for Ewing’s Sarcoma and other pediatric cancers. We are confident that this campaign will stimulate greater awareness and inspire others that believe pediatric cancer research can and will lead to a cure. Please join us in our efforts and conquer childhood cancers!
