London Devilette Haley Agius needs our help in her courageous fight against ITP

HALEY AGIUS STORY

Haley Agius is a member of our Devilettes family, most recently playing on the Midget A team and being a recipient of our Devilettes Love of the Game award.

On April 28th, 2016, just 1 week before Haley AGIUS’ 16th birthday, Haley became very ill and had to be admitted to a hospital. Soon after, Haley was diagnosed with ITP (Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpura) a rare blood disorder that is destroying her platelets, the cells that clot her blood
Since that first visit, Haley has been admitted to hospital 2 more times, and has received outpatient treatment at hospital multiple times. To date Haley has been unresponsive to all treatments and her platelet count remains dangerously low.  A possible medication available to Haley does not meet the age criteria, which is 18, for medical coverage. The cost of this treatment is beyond belief  at $4,281.52/month. Haley needs this treatment now, and the family is exploring every funding option they can in hopes that there will be some assistance available to them.

HOW YOU CAN HELP!

Fortunately, there is a way for us to help as a hockey organization. Haley’s soccer team is holding an event called the Scorpions Run: 6K for #6. This running/walking event is a fundraiser to help raise awareness of ITP and funds for Haley's family. You can support Haley by attending this event on September 3. The admission is a $20 donation on the day of the run.

 

Every participant counts, as this is just the start for the fundraising and the long recovery period of Haley. Haley has been a member of the London Devilettes Association for many years now and she has played with many different girls as well. As a hockey community, our hope is that we can rally and help Haley and her family in these difficult times.
