A tale of two worlds: Carter, a 13-year-old boy from New Brunswick and Nathaniel, an 18-year-old boy from Ontario both with a true love and passion for football.

Carter was diagnosed with Hemophilia A, a serious bleeding disorder caused by a lack of Factor 8 protein which is required during the blood clotting process. As part of his treatment, every two days Carter needs to be supplemented with a synthetic protein Factor 8 product. Without this, he is very susceptible to lengthy bleeds, which could lead to crippling injuries or if severe enough could be fatal.

Nathaniel was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, two weeks before his 16th birthday. During his treatments, he requested not to have a port & PICC line put in so that he could still play hockey and exercise. That meant, for every treatment, he would have an IV put in and then taken out between sessions. He is now cancer-free and goes for semi-annual check-ups.

Both Carter and Nathaniel’s wish of seeing a Kansas City Chiefs game came true as they traveled with their families in true pro-athlete style and received the VIP treatment. Both boys are fighters and true depictions of champions.
