Frankies Fight Against Lymphoma

It's been about a year of pain, tests/scans, doctor appointments and hospital visits. About a year later, Frankie Mitropoulos has been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a cancer in his immune system. We are still waiting for the results of his bone marrow biopsy to determine if it is stage 2 or stage 4 but either way, we are sure we will make it through this fight! For those of you with the pleasure of knowing him personally, you all know how he can light up a room with his smile and amazing personality. Frankie is one of the most positive, thoughtful and kindest person you can meet. Even through this battle, he shows his strength and bravery by making sure everyone around him continues to see the fun loving crazy Frankie we've all fell in love with.. even if he knows that when he gets back home in bed for the night, the pain hits him hard.

On May 10, Frankie has his first session of chemotherapy to start his 6 month journey towards being cancer free! We can finally start the treatment to have him feeling like himself again! Frankie and I can't be more blessed with the amount of support and love we have surrounding us during this time and we can't thank you all enough for the prayers and positive vibes we've been receiving.

As a lot of people know, the cost of this battle is incredibly high with not only chemotherapy sessions, but all of the tests and appointments in between. Unfortunately, insurance is only covering a percentage of each session leaving us to cover the rest out of pocket which they are estimating to add up to more than $25,000.

This medical fund will go towards the medical bills that have been piling up while we've been trying to find a diagnosis as well as all of the medical bills that will continue to come as we fight this battle.

Any amount you can donate will definitely be so much appreciated!

We love you all and we CAN'T WAIT to be able to announce that Frankie is cancer FREE!

Session #9 done! Today we got the results of this weeks PET scan and excellent news! The chemotherapy is continuing to work like a charm we still have three more sessions to go until he can get a final PET scan and we're waiting for that clean bill of health.
His white blood cell count is still pretty low so his immune system is still weak. He currently has a cold that he's fighting but he hasn't stopped fighting with everything he's got.
We want to thank you guys again for your continued support both financially and emotionally, with all your prayers and texts and calls asking for updates.
Continue to count down with us until he beats this battle! 3 more to go!

7.20.17- We have officially finished our halfway point! Chemo 6 done! I know it's been a while since our last update but we've definitely been keeping ourselves busy during this time. Since then, frankie has needed to put in a port to help keep his veins healthy through the rest of treatment.
Also, we had our first PET scan since starting treatment and the results are GREAT, the treatment is working fantastically to help frankie kick cancers butt!
We are so happy with the amazing progress and the continued support from everyone in every way that they have helped us from sending prayers and kind words, helping financially, and setting up fundraisers/hosting events. You guys have all been AMAZING and have played a huge part in helping frankie beat this battle.

Half way there and we are not slowing down! Let's keep helping Frankie in any way we can and he'll keep being #mitrostrong

Session 4 down! 2 cycles done! This post is a little late but it was a busy busy week for us. Last Wednesday, 6/21/17, was frankies 4th session. They had to give him some medication to relieve the pain and anxiety he was feeling throughout the session which fortunately allowed frankie to sleep through the last hour of his treatment and another 30 minutes in the chair afterwards to catch up on the sleep his anxiety didn't let him get the night before. Next week is his PET scan to finally see how hard frankie has been kicking cancers ass!
Again, we want to continue to thank you all for the continued donations and the amazing support we continue to get throughout this hard time! Thank you all!
Finally getting a bit of sleep!
