John Trollope

Pledge John Now!

Age – 38
Nickname – “The Butcher”
Nationality – Filipino-American
Assessment day weight – 94.8 kg
Been training since – January 17, 2015
Company – IKEA Japan
Position – Project/Team Leader
Why did you begin boxing? I got into boxing because of my wife, who is also an EFN V fighter. She began training roughly 5 months earlier and I could see the positive impact it had on her; both physically and mentally. She was more energized than normal after her training sessions and couldn’t stop talking about boxing. Her energy was contagious and I wanted to support her in reaching her goal to make the EFN cut. I decided to sign-up for a boxing boot camp in January to learn the basics in order to properly train together. We were quickly hooked and found ourselves training regularly. We even got our 6 year old son hooked! There is nothing better than a sparring session with your better half to show your love on Valentine’s Day.
Why are you fighting? I’m a softy when it comes to kids, especially when it comes to kids who face tough battles. If fighting for only 6 minutes (maximum) can make a small, but positive impact on the lives that need the support of Shine On! Kids … then sign me up!
Favorite quotes – ““If you are going through hell, keep going”. Winston Churchill
“You truly do not know how tall you are, until you are forced to rise”
“I choose to listen, rather than wait to speak””
Message to kids – Even though we have not met, I have you in my thoughts each time I train. You push me when I need that extra push. I can only hope that I can make you proud, or at least make you smile. I’m in your corner! YNWA (You’ll Never Walk Alone).

Childhood Cancer in Japan

Childhood cancer is the number one cause of death for children in Japan after accidents. A child is diagnosed with cancer in Japan about once every 3-4 hours each day. While the prognosis for many childhood cancers has improved significantly, the treatment process is still long and grueling. Children undergoing treatment for cancer in Japan are generally hospitalized for quite a long time – 6 months to one year or more. This puts an incredible burden on the patients and on the family supporting them. For example, mothers go to the hospital daily, staying from early morning until their child goes to sleep at night. By necessity, their world becomes the hospital, even if this is at the expense of spending time with the rest of their family. For the children undergoing cancer treatment, hospitalization can be isolating (often children under 12 are not allowed to visit the cancer ward) and frustrating. Most kids in treatment really want nothing more than to do normal kid things – like play with friends, eat what they want and go to school.

Goals

Drawing from the personal experience of the Ferris’, listening to the needs of parents and with the guidance of a quality Japanese medical advisory team, Shine On! Kids is working towards the following goals:

  1. To empower children with cancer and their families through innovative programs using arts in medicine, animal therapy and skilled counseling.
  2. To realize excellence in medical teams and treatment by providing additional medical staff, enabling collaboration among medical teams and supporting targeted research.
  3. To raise awareness of childhood cancer in the community through academic circles, general public volunteering and corporate sponsor involvement
