Tony's Road to Recovery

$56,190 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 241 people in 4 months
For those of you that may know or for those who have yet to find out, my father Tony Masci was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on November 22 2017. He began to experience very bad pains from his hips to his knees. We later learned that, that was due to the lack of oxygen that he was receiving. He was checked into Princess Margaret last Thursday December 7th and will continue to be in the hospital for the next 5-6 weeks. My dad just finished his 5 rounds of aggressive chemo on Friday. We now wait and hope to see how his bone marrow starts to produce and how his body will react to the chemo.


After his 5 weeks in the hospital, our understanding is that the medications needed are quite expensive. Being self-employed and not being physically fit to go back to work immediately, we as his 3 children, Nicholas 22, Carina 18, and Daniel 16. We are concerned for his health and well being, while he is unable to work. We are asking you to help us raise funds so my dad is able to focus on getting healthy without as many worries as possible.

My dad is a self-employed carpenter, father of 3, and a yoga instructor. He is always willing to help others, and expects nothing in return. My name is Carina Masci, I am his daughter. I am here to tell his story, because my dad is a very proud man and would never ask for help, so this is my way to help him through this difficult time.


Many of you know Tony as a strong, powerful and passionate person. Who practiced and taught yoga at least 7 times a week, and also worked morning day and night as a finished carpenter. Anything helps, whether its a dollar or even a message of support. We wanna kick this cancer's ass so we thank you for any help in advance. Thank you from the Masci family

Hi everyone I just wanted to give you another update on my dads treatment as you all know he was diagnosed with lukemia in November.... he just finished his 4th round of chemo and finally got his bone marrow transparent yesterday afternoon unfortunately my brother Nicholas was not able to be the donor because he was only a 50% match and it would have been to difficult for my dad to fight the remaining 50%. We got lucky and found a 9 out of 10 mixed match. Today is the new beginning for him, we know it will be a very long journey but he is a strong fighter and will beat this disease.

Just giving everyone another update for Tony.... we were not able to find a perfect match for his bone marrow transplant but the second best candidate will be my older brother Nicholas since he is a half match we are praying everything goes well. This procedure will hopefully take place mid March or bringing of April. We have been advised it will be a long and hard process for Tony. So today we are raising the bar on our go fund as we have been advised that after the transplant he will be on a lot of medication that can start at $3000.00 a shot. He will not be able to work at full capacity or any at all for the next 1 to 2 years. Every little bit helps. Thank you again for every single donation !
