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.
