Fundraiser + Silent Auction
Surfer the Bar, Turtle Bay Resort
Tuesday, December 16th
As many of you may know, Dana and Dennis Pang’s daughter, Jaden, was diagnosed cancer called Osteosarcoma in October. The medical bills are astronomical. We are asking for the community and friends to pull together to help alleviate some of the Pang family’s financial burden. There will be a fundraiser with a raffle and silent auction at Surfer the Bar, Turtle Bay Resort, December 16, 2014 from 6pm to 10pm.
Osteosarcoma is a type of cancer that starts in the bones and usually develops in children and young adults. The cancer develops in areas where the bone is growing quickly, such as near the ends of the long bones. Jaden’s tumor is in the distal femur (the lower part of the thigh bone). She is undergoing extensive chemotherapy treatments in preparation for surgery to replace the cancerous bone with a prosthetic followed by more chemotherapy treatments. It is a ver grueling treatment program, but Jaden is staying positive and focused on recovering.
Jaden, 18 years old, and her younger brother Makana both enjoy surfing and the ocean. Jaden spent her early years at our own little Sunset Beach Elementary and went on to Kahuku High School. Jaden’s true passion in life is horses. She has shined in high school rodeo competitions. After graduating from high school last spring she worked at Gunstock Ranch where she takes guests on trail rides. Jaden’s treatment will complete this summer and she is looking forward to living life to its fullest.
