Dear Friends

We are reaching out to you on behalf of the Nadeau family from Sarnia, Ontario. On December 9, Stephan and Jessica were given very devastating news; their beautiful five-year-old son, Lucien, was diagnosed with a massive tumour (larger than a grapefruit) inside his brain.

Their always energetic and smiling little boy had started showing signs that something wasn't right and his parents brought him to the Children's Hospital in London Ontario. CAT scans and MRIs confirmed that their little boy was gravely ill.

Lucien will undergo a very lengthy and complex neurosurgery on December 12. Depending on what the doctors find (cancerous versus non-cancerous as well as the severity) will determine how long the surgery will last; the longer the surgery, the better! A surgery of over 20 hours means they are able to remove as much of the tumour as they can.

Lucien's recovery will be long and arduous. His tumour is so large and invasive that the doctors have warned his parents that he will be hospitalized for sometime and will require extensive rehabilitation and therapy.

As you can imagine, this will cause a huge emotional and financial strain on the Nadeau family. They need your help.

If you are able to donate, even a small amount, to help support Stephane, Jessica and their three beautiful children, through this difficult time, it is greatly appreciated.

It is at times like these that we rely on the support of others to make it through a very difficult journey.

Please keep Lucien in your thoughts and prayers.

With much gratitude,
(On behalf of) The Nadeau Family

Please help spread the word!

It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you that this evening little Lucien passed away.

Please hold his family in your thoughts and prayers as they grieve the loss of their beautiful boy whose beautiful smile brought joy to all who were graced to see it.

Rest peacefully Lucien. A Superhero on Earth; an Angel in Heaven. #Luv4Lucien

This picture captures the special bond between mother and son. An eternal love that will live on forever in Jessica’s heart. This love comforts a little boy who must be very afraid. #Luv4Lucien

The Nadeau Family received devastating news this week. Their sweet little Lucien’s cancer is progressing at a significant rate. They are facing the realization that his time here is precious and his health will continue to deteriorate.

His parents want to fill whatever remaining time he has with as many awesome experiences while he still has the ability. They truly appreciate any ideas, suggestions or invitations to bring Lucien joy and laughter.

His father, Stéphane, has been working far from home but has returned to be with his family. They would really like to be together as a family surrounding Lucien with love.

This means they have limited income at this time, and could once again, benefit from the generous donations from near and far. If you are able to contribute, your financial assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for caring and sharing.

A smiling Lucien

I have been following GBM for many years because of a personal situation. There are so many new trials going on right now for this type of cancer, in both Canada and the USA. Please stay positive!

Amazing news. Lucien is safely out of surgery and it has gone better than expected! The surgeon feels it isn't cancerous but they have to wait 10+ days for tests to confirm this. He is in a medically induced coma for the next several days. Tomorrow he will have an MRI to determine if they got all of the tumour and to assess his brain for the impact of the tumour. Once he starts waking up they will know the extent of the damages (possibly deaf, blind and paralysis). For now though, the news is uplifting. The Nadeau Family is extremely humbled by and gracious of all of your generosity. Your donations have raised almost $10000 on the first day alone.

Last night, the Sarnia Legionnaires taped their sticks orange in support of Lucien. The Legionnaire family(executive, players, parents, fans and 102 Sarnia army cadets) raised $1080. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. The boys would love for Lucien to come to a game when he feels up to it!!

Our daughter Ellie was in Lucien’s class and had a special bond with him. She talked about him often and still does every day. She misses him so much.
