Sorcerers Safari alumnus and counsellor honoured on Good Morning America

Updated at 10:50am to add:

If you've been to Sorcerers Safari Magic and Performance Camp, you know him or have been touched by his generosity in some way.  If you attended the Browser's Bash earlier this year, you heard about him and were a recipient of his generosity.

Congratulations Chad Juros, for winning Good Morning America's “Above and Beyond” contest.  Keep up the great work!

From ABC News:
One do-gooder from New Jersey got a very magical surprise of his own on “Good Morning America” today with help from his idol, magician David Copperfield.

Chad Juros, 27, is a child leukemia survivor who has established a foundation called “Spread the Magic” where he travels the world performing magic for children with cancer “in the hopes that they can find magic in their lives as Chad did in his,” Juros’ mother, Penny Juros Bilker, told ABC News.

“The day Chad was born was such a wonderful, magical day for our family,” Juros Bilker, 57, of Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, said about her son. “He was a very sweet, kind, loving, energetic, happy-go-lucky kid.”

But when Juros, also of Egg Harbor Township, was only 3, he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

From the Press of Atlantic City:
ATLANTIC CITY — Dozens of family members, friends and beachgoers gathered Wednesday in front of Bally’s to honor Chad Juros, an Egg Harbor Township resident who beat leukemia — twice.

His mother, Penny, entered him in a contest with “Good Morning America” called “Above and Beyond,” his family said. Juros, 27, won out of 100 entrants and was surprised from a spot in Bally’s to see a crowd on the beach yelling and cheering. The group formed an outline of a deck of cards in the sand.
