On July 15th a lacrosse defenseman from a small town in Upstate NY, Seneca Falls, received the news that “NOONE” – (no one) wants to hear. Jayden Noone was diagnosed with Predomate Hodgkins Lymphoma. After a really long few months and 12 radiation treatments, Jayden had shown complete response. Jayden’s strength and determination prevailed!
With deep roots in the NY area The Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation heard about Jayden and immediately Casey put a call in to him. Jayden was over the top thrilled… after the phone call ended his parents asked him to do something and his response was “You gotta give me a minute I just got off the phone with Casey Powell!” They made arrangements for Jayden to spend the day with one of the ambassadors in Syracuse, Mason Powell in which they would spend the day having fun they chose a day of bowling eating and goofing around inside jokes and just plain fun, a day where Jayden and his parents could put this disease on the back shelf just for a few hours.
Jayden was also selected by the MAKE-A-WISH Foundation to make some of his wishes come true. He chose a visit to Walt Disney World and when asked by the Make- A-Wish of more of his wishes “I so badly wish to meet Casey Powell.” So Make-A-Wish notified Casey without Jayden knowing…And of course Casey made arrangements to surprise Jayden in Orlando….tears flowed all around when Casey walked in and they enjoyed an awesome family dinner, some serious laughs, and a great photo shoot!
Another shout out to all of you who have donated to the Casey Powell World Lacrosse Foundation…You all made another wish come true! Providing a moment of joy and happiness that will always be cherished by Jayden and Casey. So Jayden the Spoon Noone, the GOAT, and the rest of our World Lacrosse Foundation family will continuously send you wishes for thriving health and look forward to your continued success…
