The Hayden Hoodie is named in honour of POGO ambassador, Hayden. Hayden was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) before she was two years old. Children are considered to have very high-risk ALL based on certain chromosome changes inside their leukemia cells that make it harder to treat. 

Model is wearing size medium.

Checkout the entire story below: 

Hayden was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia at 22 months. She underwent thousands of hours of intensive chemotherapy, multiple blood transfusions and experimental therapies offered to high risk ALL patients.

Sadly, after nearly six-years of battling leukemia, Hayden hung up her superhero cape and left this world in October 2019 at the age of 7.

While most of Hayden's life was spent fighting cancer, she was so much more than her illness. She loved going to school when she could, she spent hours planting flowers and collecting rocks, and she tried every possible new experience she could—from bowling and birthday parties to Disney and Niagara Falls. Hayden was also a HUGE hockey fan. Her favourite player was Toronto Maple Leafs’ right-winger, Mitch Marner who she met when he was still a rookie in the OHL visiting kids at the London Children’s Hospital. Together they created the MITCH ONE-SIX trucker hat, sold through the Marner Assist Fund to help raise awareness and funds for kids’ cancer care. Partial proceeds from the sale of the Trucker hat go to support the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO).

  ‘She will not be remembered for the years in her life but rather the life in her years’.” -Lindsay

In 2019, Hayden’s mom, Lindsay and her aunt, Jodie, created Hayden’s Hope, a charitable foundation created to help families financially while at remote hospitals, as well as offer support to  parents/caregivers with their own mental health during their child’s cancer journey. 

The POGO Financial Assistance Program helps families pay for unexpected out-of-pocket costs associated with their child’s treatment, including subsidies for food while at the hospital, accommodation when travelling for treatment and babysitting for siblings that are left at home
