Huntsville Havoc elevating cash for St. Jude via Jersey Public sale Saturday night time

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Havoc have teamed up to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with a shirt auction on Saturday night after the game.

The Havoc is auctioning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle jerseys, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to the hospital known for treating it regardless of a family’s solvency.

One of St. Jude’s eight partner clinics is located at Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children, so children in northern Alabama suffering from childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases can be treated close to their homes.

Cassie Smith is Arab. She was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the age of 17.

“I totally lost walking, I had no idea how to do it. My muscle mass was gone, I couldn’t go up the stairs alone, my father had to carry me most of the time. I couldn’t get up for more than a minute or I would pass out because I was just too weak, ”says Cassie Smith.

Cassie was treated for the first three months at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

“It was hard for me to see my parents go home, my sister go home, and then I had to stay up there,” says Smith.

But the partner clinic in Huntsville offers Cassie and others in North Alabama the opportunity to be closer to home.

“You know nothing is better than at home. When I was in Memphis, I had pretty big problems because I wasn’t home, ”says Smith.

“If we weren’t here, these families wouldn’t be in their homes, in their community, with the support they need. And if they come here and let us do their treatment and care for them, they can be at home and have a more normal life, ”says nurse Laura Wiggs.

Now, three years later, Cassie is officially through with chemotherapy. The St. Jude Affiliate Clinic in Huntsville held a “No Mo Chemo” party to celebrate.

“While Cassie looks great today, there have been days when she really wasn’t feeling well and yet she only won in the end, and so do all of our children regardless of their diagnosis. They’re just inspiring, ”says nurse Caroline Webster.

Cassie credits St. Jude for her recovery.

“My nurses in particular, my doctors here at the subsidiary, are amazing. You’ve helped me a lot on this trip, ”says Smith.

The shirt auction, which supports St. Jude’s efforts, will be held at the VBC Arena after the game in Huntsville Havoc. You must be there in person to participate.

You can send HOPE to 61094 to donate St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Bring your donation receipt to the game information booth for a free St. Jude Swag!
