The town of St. George, Ontario, is celebrating Christmas early this year in honor of Evan Leversage, who is battling terminal brain cancer and whose family wanted to ensure he enjoyed a proper Christmas. Evan has been fighting brain cancer for the past five years, and his doctor advised the family at the end of September that it would be wise to celebrate Christmas early. Evan's cousins decided to encourage the entire town to celebrate early, creating a Facebook event and a GoFundMe site to help the Leversage family with medical costs during the tough next few months.
The entire town of St. George is behind the idea and is celebrating Christmas early for Evan. It now includes a parade down Main Street, with every business fully decked out in Christmas decorations. Evan loves the Minions characters, so the family's front lawn is full of Minion decorations out front along with Christmas lights. A group of supporters surprised Evan by decorating the inside of the house and leaving gifts under the tree, and people have been stopping by everyday with special gifts for Evan and his brothers. Merry Christmas to St. George, and be sure to check out the GoFundMe site.
