Six-year-old Elyjah has a passion for building with Legos, playing with cars, and watching demolition derbies. He loves taking trips to the beach and having adventures with his two cats, Tony and Cupcake.

Elyjah was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in November 2018 and is currently being treated at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic. At the Clinic, he enjoys playing music with friends and doing arts and crafts. “Because of the Jimmy Fund, my child is healthy and happy,” says Elyjah’s mom, Lauren. “To us, it means life, health, and certainty.” Elyjah and his family want to thank everyone who has helped raise money for Jimmy Fund Little League, giving children like Elyjah a healthier future.
