Christmas in October
« on: October 23, 2015, 11:19:25 AM »
The town of Saint George Ontario is bringing Christmas to town in October for a seven year old boy with cancer who may not live to see December.

Evan Leversage was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor when he was just two years old. Recently, it was discovered that treatment has failed. Evan is not expected to survive much longer.

Since Christmas is Evan's favourite holiday, and since he has so little time, the town of Saint George has responded, by having Christmas early.

The entire town has been decorated, and a Christmas parade is scheduled for tomorrow. A special effects company has graciously volunteered to provide snow.

It makes me happy when humans aren't total jerks. Good job, Saint George!

The ONE acceptable reason for Christmas stuff being on display in October.
Did we really just spend the last decade talking about Chex Quest? Yes. Yes we did.

I regret nothing!

Hope that he does survive longer. That would be a cool thing to tell your grandchildren..

It was predicted that Evan Leversage would not make it to Christmas.

Two days ago, that prediction has come to pass when Evan succumbed to his cancer.
