Fighting Cancer, One Family at a Time!
We are so happy to be a positive part of a family's life in the midst of their difficult time. Through your contributions, we are paying it forward on your behalf to many families during their time of need. Each and every story is touching in its own way. Please check in occasionally on these families to follow their progress. Keep them all in your prayers.
At the age of three months Haven was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma after doctor's told her parent's that Haven had a 50/50 chance of inheriting the gene from her Dad. Laster treatments and chemo were administered six times. When the treatments stopped the tumors had once again come back aggressively with seeds attached to them. At this time Haven would be referred to two other doctor's in New York that they go every 4 weeks to have her examined. Dr. Abrahamson then gives them the updates on the tumors and if they are shrinking or the seeds are being killed. At this time her right eye has very limited images, probably only seeing shadows and the left eye is remaining with sight. It is the doctor's hope and desire to save both of her eyes as well as her vision. She is a little fighter and all the nurses and doctors have fallen in love with her. Haven is now 2 years old and still sees the doctor's in New York every 4-6 weeks. Please keep Haven and her family in your thoughts. For more inormation on retinoblastoma:
Meet Tunisia. We had the honor of helping her while she fights so bravely to beat Breast Cancer. She's a single mom who works two jobs 7 days a week to try to stay on top of her bills while fighting this disease. It is because of your generous donations and participation in our events that we were able to help Tunisia with her bills and give her more time to focus on her health. Thank you so much for helping us do what we do! We are praying for you Tunisia!
