The generosity of the Community of Akwesasne is overwhelming and very much appreciated. The tournament raised $7,000 to help cover the treatments that Jaylan is receiving. Jaylan is five years old and has autism. She must be taken to Ottawa every weekday for hyperbaric oxygen treatments. The treatments are not covered under any insurance plan and are considered an out of pocket expense because there is, no known cause of or cure for autism yet. Thankfully the treatments have improved Jaylans health dramatically; however, she will be receiving 80 treatments this year at $150 each.

If we missed anyone it was not intentional.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The family of Jaylan Adams.
