Curtis Chow

Curtis has been touched, and is missed at the same time, by the communities around him…

His Family

Born on Nov 25, 1998 to parents whose lives have been so much more enriched because of their first-born. He was named Curtis Joshua Chow but has been lovingly referred to by families and friends who have known him since young as “CJ” …

His life was forever changed when his little sister came along in 2002. He promised to always be “Gau Gau” (big bro) to his “Mui Mui” (little sis) no matter what …

He was blessed with 4 grandparents, 5 uncles, 5 aunts and 5 cousins.

His Schools

Curtis was fortunate to have belonged to 2 outstanding schools…

Sherwood Mills Public School was his primary school for Grades 1 through 5. He then moved on to Fallingbrook Middle School for Grade 6. Both schools supported him academically, socially and emotionally when he was a student and continued his fight after he passed away…

He also forged friendships that he would have loved to keep. They brought him joy and laughter, and made school fun.

His Church Communities

He found life-long friends whom he treasured, and time spent with them was some of the best in his much too short life…

The churches he belonged to also help nurture his faith, which he held onto till the very end.

His Karate Club

Karate became his passion and he was proud to be part of the Mississauga Chito-Ryu Karate Academy that taught him respect, discipline, as well as cool moves…

The trophies they helped him win were some of his most prized possessions.

His Medical Teams

He probably wished he’d never known any of them. Yet the teams at Sick Kids and the Credit Valley Hospital Pediatric Oncology Clinic have stood by him and his family throughout his 8 ½ year battle. They have given him their best despite the unfortunate setting. For that, he’ll always be grateful …

They are now at the forefront of his fight against Neuroblastoma, bringing about cutting-edge research and developing personalized medicine to help fulfill his wish.

His FAN Club

The extended communities – some have journeyed with him since the beginning, others are new friends – are now part of the FAN (Fight Against Neuroblastoma) Club…

Some have touched him in very personal ways and others are continuing to his fight through their support.
