Why are you fighting? – Good question! Why would anyone volunteer to get punched in the face? I guess it boils down to my hyper-competitive nature. I started boxing for fun and fitness (running is boring…) and that evolved into a personal challenge to try out & compete in EFN. It also allows me to meet some really interesting people and represent an excellent cause like Shine On! Kids.

Charity of the Evening :

Shine On Kids

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.


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
