Pardon My Striptease releases song for Lilee Jean

Chilliwack toddler facing long road of treatment for aggressive cancer



The support for Lilee-Jean Whittle-Putt keeps pouring in. And now, her father’s band is getting a chance to help.

Pardon My Striptease is releasing a single on itunes on December 5, titled Pray.

The download costs 99 cents, with half of the money going toward lead singer Andrew Putt’s family. The other half will go directly toward B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Lilee-Jean is currently spending more time in the hospital than out of it, undergoing treatment for Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer.

Her parents, Putt and Chelsey Whittle, noticed earlier this fall that their daughter was tilting her head more and more. She was becoming quite unbalanced as she learned how to walk. A doctor had noted that her head was starting to look a little larger.

Soon, those concerns all culminated into a dizzying series of visits to doctor’s offices and hospitals, where a diagnosis was made and treatment began.

The road ahead is a long one, Putt told The Observer in October. It could also be a costly one, if surgeries to remove the brain tumor damage her young brain.

Fundraisers have been held throughout the Fraser Valley and as far away as Fort MacMurray. Most recently, a spaghetti dinner at the Agassiz Legion raised nearly $5,000.

Being in a popular rock band, the support has been coming from not just family and friends, but from fans as well.

But the timing of the song’s release on Monday will also mark a special milestone in young Lilee’s life.

December 5 also happens to be her very first birthday.
