Mission: Trip to L.A.

Jaylan is an 11 year old from Houston, TX. He has a passion for making people smile and laugh. He’s always trying to make light of every situation. Jaylan’s journey started when he began to have stomach pains out of nowhere and Jaylan and his mom has no clue why he’s having them.

His mom brought him to the emergency room and the doctor told them that he was just constipated. They visited the ER 4 times before the doctors realized his blood count was off and he was anemic. They ordered a colonoscopy and he was diagnosed with Crohn’s. A week later after the biopsy result came back, he was then diagnosed with Colon Stage 4 cancer instead of Crohn’s.

Our mission is to raise $10,000 in the month of February to cover the costs of Jaylan’s dream to send him and his family on a trip in LA.

Keep F*****g Going

September 19, 2020

Creating each show was like the old “time to make the donuts” commercial. And then, a few weeks ago I broke…
