JD Knives owner holding fundraiser for 4-year-old cancer victim


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The owner of JD Knives and Custom Works is holding a fundraiser to help a Fort St. John girl who was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer earlier this month.

Jesse Lambert said that after hearing about 4 year-old Natalie, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy at BC Children’s Hospital battling Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, he decided he wanted to help raise money for Natalie’s family travel expenses. Lambert said that he’s taking donations until noon on Friday for the fundraiser. In return, those who donate $20 or more will get a chance to win one of his custom knives.

Lambert explained that because of gaming laws, the draw can’t be referred to as a “raffle,” but donors do have a chance to receive the knife as a “thank you” for the donation. He said that the draw will take place on Friday at 3:00 p.m., with the cheque to be delivered to Natalie’s family on the same day.
