Jeff and Krystalyn Rodell have 3 awesome young children. Nine months ago their daughter Emerson joined her older brothers Reid, who is 2, and Jack, who is 4 – correction, “4 and a half” – just ask him and he’ll tell you. Jack was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in December of 2018. Like his dad, young Jack loves hockey. He’s had a stick in his hand every day since his dad took him to Quebec in 2017 while coaching the Foothills squirt AA team. He would love nothing more than to follow in his dad’s footsteps and fight to win a college national championship – but first Jack has to finish winning his fight with leukemia.
In December Jack’s doctors immediately started him on a 3+ year treatment for the disease. Despite having Leukemia, Jack is always smiling, always positive. Jeff and Krystalyn are inspired every day by his strength and his attitude. If you meet Jack I’m sure you’ll be inspired too! Treatment will hopefully save young Jack’s life, but medical expenses and missed work have already put a financial strain on the Rodell family.
