Help Oliver fight Cancer!

Posted by Victoria Junior Field Hockey Association on May 23 2023 at 09:27PM PDT in 2023 Season

The Victoria Junior Field Hockey Association is looking for our community’s support in helping one of our own. EIght-year-old Oliver Conway is a member of our U8 Boys program this year but had to stop playing because of a recent cancer diagnosis.

The Conway family is now in the fight of their lives and they could use our support.

From the GoFund Me page:
On May 2, 2023, after an investigative CT scane, it was discovered that Oliver had a cancerous brain tumor. Life for our family changed on a dime, and we suddenly found ourselves with Oliver at BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver awaiting surgery to remove the tumor. Later that week he had the tumor removed successfully. Unfortunately, post-op testing confirmed that the tumor had metastasized to another part of his brain. It has been the darkest days of our life.

Oliver requires many months of treatment. He will have up to 6 months of chemotherapy at BC Children’s Hospital and 6 weeks of radiation therapy in Seattle.

Hailee, a Certified Dental Assistant, and Evan, an Electrician, have each had to take a leave of absence from their jobs in Victoria to be present with Oliver in Vancouver through his neurosurgery and now as he begins his chemo and radiation.
