We are often inspired,moved and changed by the stories of individuals who are forced to face insurmountable obstacles in their life. Adam Cripps is one of these people. At 15 years of age, Adam has beaten cancer three times already. The cost of those battles was the loss of his bladder, prostate and left leg and yet Adam has remained an active teen for most of the last 7 years. He biked, camped, snowboarded and tried to live a relatively normal life until July 2013.
On July 17th, 2013 Adam was diagnosed with cancer a fourth and final time. He has terminal Stage 4 Colon cancer. It has metastasized in his lungs, liver, and bones. Adam was told he only had 2-3 months to live without any treatment. With treatment they predicted 10-12 months but all of those months would be in and out of hospital getting chemotherapy. At the young age of 14, Adam decided to try a small amount of treatment, just to give him a little more time to say his goodbye’s and live out a few last wishes and dreams along the way.
We would like to invite you to celebrate Adam’s courage and strength as he continues to battle cancer and be a part of his 16th birthday party on August 23th. To participate in this event is to help make one of Adam’s dreams a reality. Adam loves Boonstock and music and we are going to throw him the best birthday party we can and continue the tradition of Adamstock. This event has helped raise funds for the family as they make the most out of the days they have. It is Adam’s wish that Adamstock continue as a sustainable event to help raise funds for families in similar situations. In that regard, the Alberta Cancer Foundation is working with Adamstock to ensure that vision becomes a reality. All proceeds from Adamstock 2014 will go to the Adam’s Army Fund. This event is dedicated to youth with cancer and the families that are there through the battle.
