THE CHEMO CRAZIES
The Chemo Crazies were formed in May 2015 when Jayden (J-Dog) Morris aged 10 and Grant (G Man) Gerken aged 48 were both undergoing treatment for incurable cancers in Christchurch. Their mission is to inspire kids and families living with cancer, to use laughter & fun as the best medicine, while fighting the hard battles in life. And to just keep going! Lemonface Design were delighted to help out and donate the design of their brand.
The Chemo Crazies provide a "prescription pack" to children undergoing cancer treatment to help put a smile on their faces and provide a distraction for a brief moment from what they are facing. Lemonface Design helped design and produce the pack contents including a book, a board game, a wristband, a set of building blocks, a pair of sunglasses and a funny face stress ball.
Unfortunately, Jayden's outcome from this disease wasn't as all was hoped for. After a courageous eighteen months fight, Jayden sadly passed away in May 2016. Grant luckily is still fighting and along with Jayden's parents, his little sister and close friends, all are intent in keeping Jayden's dream of “Inspiring Kids with Cancer” alive.
The All Blacks skipper says “I remember Jayden from CHOC and the Make a Wish message he sent. I think it’s a great way to honour Jayden's memory and am happy to help out the Chemo Crazies as it sounds like a fantastic project.”
