Chemotherapy Continues for Dodger Draft Pick

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

An update on Jayson Whitehouse, who was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma shortly after being drafted by the Dodgers in June, from John Quinn of Foster's Daily Democrat of Dover:

Friends of Jayson Whitehouse, a local baseball player who was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers and diagnosed with cancer this summer, have organized a 75-mile fund-raising Poker Ride/Fun Run for him in September. ...

"Right now, things are going well," said Don Dinwoodie, who coached baseball at Farmington High School until 2004 and watched Whitehouse play baseball in town for years before. ...

Dimwoodie said Whitehouse started his third round of weeklong chemotherapy treatments on Aug. 22 at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Whitehouse will return home to recover from the sessions, as he has previously, he said. ...

Sue Asselin, who organized the event with Dinwoodie, said 100 percent of the proceeds from the fund-raiser will go to help Whitehouse pay for treatments, medication and other expenses not covered by insurance.

"He's the next Lance Armstrong," Asselin said. Whitehouse plans to go back to college in the spring and will return to playing baseball, she added. ...

It would be nice to see some of the players on the big league club donate some money, given what they make. I'm looking at you, Dreifort.

Thanks for all your great thoughts. Jay is fighting hard, and we all have faith that he will come out swinging hard. I am the one organizing his Fund raiser. Bills are high. This small town has so far raised $2600.oo, and the Bike/Poker run is still 2 weeks away. I challenge the ball players and or dodgers to match me dollar for dollar for what I can raise. It would be small change for them, and would be greatly appreciated. Donations may be made to Jayson Whitehouse, C/O Sue Asselin Motorcycle Run 308 Main Street, Farmington, NH 03835. Info at dazdck1@hotmail.com on the Poke Run Thanks again for you prayers.

I met Jayson today at a winter baseball camp in Portsmouth, NH and he signed a ball for me. I am 10 years old and I have kidney disease. He will be a great inspiration to me. I have been playing baseball for almost a year now. It's great to know that an illness won't keep us down! Go Jayson! You are in my prayers. "Johnny D"
