Ian was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the white blood cells, in April 2013 when he was 11 years old. He had been very tired, sleeping a lot, and his skin was chalky white. Ian underwent surgery and chemotherapy. Ian now receives treatment in 3-week sessions. He goes to the Jimmy Fund Clinic the first Tuesday, and is seen at home by a visiting nurse the second and third Tuesdays. He'll be an 8th grader at Marshall Middle School in Billerica, where his mom says the teachers have been "unbelievable" in keeping him at his grade level. He sees a tutor 3 times a week to keep him on track.

Maria first went to the doctor because she was unusually tired and had had a very bad cross country season. That led to a great deal of blood work, which eventually led her to the Jimmy Fund Clinic. However, she never considered herself to be really "sick", just a little off. She underwent chemo for 6 months. She finished treatment on April 15th, 2014. On May 6th, she was officially declared in remission.

Shortly after Karen was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, her son Owen complained of severe stomach pain. After a visit to the ER he was diagnosed with a bowel intussusception. From there he was sent to Children's. Surgery went great but with test run on his blood he was then diagnosed with cancer. His treatment consisted of 4 months of intense chemotherapy. The first 3 months went pretty smoothly but during his last treatment he developed a couple of infections. This landed him in ICU for 7 days. His favorite part of the of the Jimmy Fund Clinic is a tie between the special he receives and the cafeteria.

John Hirschbeck joined Mikey Adams and Joe Castiglione. John is an MLB umpire who was diagnosed with a form of testicular cancer described as treatable by Dr. Stephen Jones of the Cleveland Clinic, causing Hirschbeck, who had missed the entire 2008 season following back surgery, to miss the remainder of the 2009 season as well. After the tumor was removed via orchidectomy, the cancer was given a 10 percent chance of recurrence, and Hirschbeck returned for the 2010 season. After working a reduced schedule in 2011 due to back pain, Hirschbeck's cancer returned and he missed the 2012 MLB season.[11] His last contest before returning to umpiring's disabled list was Game 162 of the 2011 regular season between the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles. In August 2012, Hirschbeck advised he was again cancer-free and made plans to returned in 2013.
