Yesterday, David Guerra was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. David is 15 years old and just finished his freshman year at Saddle Brook High School.
Davids family needs our help. He is being raised by a single working mom who will now be forced to, at the very least, cut back her hours tremendously. If we can take a tiny bit of the stress off of her, so she can focus solely on David, that would be a tremendous help.
I have seen, first hand, how our town can come together when one of "our" kids is in need. David is one of "our" kids and he needs our help.
On Monday he is beginning the hardest 8 months of his life. Please help this young man and his family if you can! Please share his story far and wide! Lets show David that Saddle Brook will help him kick cancers butt!!!

I just wanted to give a quick update on David. Last night he started running a fever so he was admitted back into the hospital ☹️️ he had another allergic reaction when he got there and the doctors realized that he is allergic to penicillin. He will be receiving a dose of chemotherapy tomorrow and then hopefully he will be discharged! Please say an extra prayer tonight
Please follow "David's Falcons" on Facebook. I update there more often.

Thank you for all of your support!

Today David is having a spinal tap and they will be checking his bone marrow. Then he will be receiving another dose of chemotherapy. Please say a little prayer for David and that his test results are showing some improvement! God Bless you all for all you've already done and please continue sharing Davids story. This is a long road and his family will need all the support they can get!!

After 11 days in the hospital David is going home today! He is finally stable enough. He will continue his chemotherapy from home, in pill form, and will be going back to the hospital, once a week, for the other chemotherapy. The first 8 months will be the most intense! Please continue to pray for David and his family and please continue to share his story!!

David seems to be stabilizing. After a lot of blood transfusions his numbers are staying consistent. They will be testing his bone marrow on Monday and if that comes back ok he may be able to go home on Tuesday as he continues his treatment. I had the pleasure of hanging out with David and his friends yesterday and I loved seeing them keeping his spirits up. By the end of the 3rd uno game, as he was receiving yet another blood transfusion, you could see the exhaustion in his face. May God bless David and please keep him in your prayers! Continue sharing his story!! On behalf of Ruth and David, Thank You all!!
UNO with friends

Dear David, You don't know me. A friend of mine sent me the link to this page. We both have 15 year olds -- so your story touched us. I want you to know that you have people thinking about you and pulling for you that have never met you. You seem like an amazing guy with an incredibly supportive set of family and friends. I wish you the best. I will keep you in my thoughts. Maryanne

So sorry I am only hearing of this now. Ruth was so good to my son when he went to Smith school with Danny and David, she is such a kind person with such a giving heart. I wish David continued healing and strength.
