Since the season is shortened, Jayce and the Vogel family are the 2021 “Pot of Gold” recipients. This means all of the funds raised from the auction will go directly to the family.
At just 6 months old, Jayce was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic neuroblastoma, a cancerous tumor that begins in nerve tissue of infants and very young children, according to the press release.
For a year, Jayce was being cared for and treated at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Then he was referred to New York's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for treatment, requiring monthly trips. These trips lasted 18 days or more, and would require painful treatments of immunotherapy.
After enduring over a year and a half of tough travel back and forth for Jayce and his family he’s since finished five more rounds of chemotherapy and 12 rounds of immunotherapy, according to the press release.
In addition to his neuroblastoma, he is the only child in the world known to have a condition called VIP (vasoactive intestinal peptide), which has not responded to traditional treatment options.
Unfortunately for Jayce, with no known cure for his condition, maintenance for Jayce’s maturing cancer is the only option.
The Colorado Eagles will continue to keep fans apprised of the latest developments as it relates to the offseason and the resumption of summer events.
