Plucky cancer fighter dies in Lambton crash
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
He was going to play in the National Hockey League one day. His heart set on that goal, 11-year-old Jalen DAY beat a rare cancer that struck him at goalie camp in 2003.
But yesterday, members of Sarnia's hockey community were devastated to learn the boy known as Smiley -- the boy they had grown to admire -- was killed in a car crash Sunday.
"This is like the cruelest possible plot twist in a movie," said Paul BURGESS, leader of a weekly goalie clinic who shared laughs with Jalen on the ice Saturday.
"You're waiting for the beautiful ending to happen and, all of a sudden, something totally unexpected ruins everything," BURGESS said.
Jalen, who lived in Watford with his family, was one of three area children killed in crashes Sunday.
About 9: 30 a.m., two young sisters, Eva, 4, and Mary FROESE, 9, died on the way to church after a van driven by their mother went out of control on a steep hill near Port Burwell.
The girls' mother, Sara FROESE, three teenage sisters and a male relative suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said yesterday.
"It's so sad. It's just a freak, sad thing," said Elgin Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jennifer WILKS.
In Lambton County, Jalen's father, David, remained in hospital yesterday with injuries suffered in the crash that killed his son.
The vehicle carrying them collided with another on Petrolia Line around 7: 45 p.m. Sunday. A woman and her six-year-old son from the other vehicle were treated in hospital.
Jalen, sidelined for a year by cancer treatments, had been back to hockey for several months, first at the summer goalie camp, then playing peewee in Watford and attending BURGESS's clinics at the Sarnia Sports and Entertainment Centre.
Everything was going just as Jalen planned, BURGESS said.
"After he found out he had cancer (in August 2003), he told me, 'I'm going to beat cancer because I'm going to play in the National Hockey League someday,' BURGESS said.
"And when he first came back, his skating was suffering because the tumour had affected his right leg. But by Saturday morning, I had put him with the best skaters -- that's how far he had come.
Sarnia Sting goalie coach Larry LUCAS met Jalen at the 2003 goalie camp, where the young boy learned he had a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.
"Everybody is in utter shock," LUCAS said yesterday. "To see him beat cancer and then get a phone call at 7: 30 (a.m.) saying he got killed... I'm really struggling with this."
Jalen was considered a local success story after his rough battle with the brutal cancer that causes tumours to attack muscle cells. The cancer strikes about 60 children around the world each year.
In November 2003, while Jalen was in radiation therapy, the Sting put on a benefit hockey game before a packed arena, raising $25,000 for his family.
London Knights assistant coach Jeff PERRY, then with the Sting, helped organize the game between the Ontario Hockey League team and National Hockey League players.
Jalen dropped the puck.
Yesterday, a "devastated and numb" PERRY recalled the day.
"It was great," he said. "The highlight was Jalen sitting beside me in the dressing room... he looked over at me and said he didn't want the day to end."
Students and staff at Brooke Central school in Alvinston were grieving Jalen's death yesterday.
Principal Ann LARSEN said she couldn't comment personally, but read from a news release.
"Jalen... was always willing to share and express his humour and good sportsmanship with others," the release said.
"His recent success in overcoming cancer was wellknown in the community and his determination to overcome adversity was an inspiration."

They settled in the London area with the dream of building a business. Pete's destiny was to work in the greenhouse. From a very young age, he loved to accompany his father to the greenhouses where he worked. So while his parents worked elsewhere to provide a steady income, Pete was instrumental in the growth of the family business from its inception. Eventually he took over the business from his parents and has steadily and successfully built it to what it is today. Through the years he employed many family members and students and taught them an admirable work ethic. He worked right along with his staff and found it very difficult when he became ill and could no longer work. Pete was an admired Boy Scout Leader and a founding member of the London and District Florists Association. Special thanks to Dr. KERR, Dr. PERERA and Mary Liz. Your compassion for and care of Pete during his four years of treatment greatly helped ease his journey. Also thank you to the special women (ie Nurses) of Victorial Hospital who helped him through his final week. Pete touched the lives of all who knew him! He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. Cremation has taken place. Memorial visitation will be held in the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford) on Thursday from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the memorial service.
