Michael Suarez Cancer Funds
He had surgery that following day, Friday at 3pm and the doctors were able to remove the entire tumor. The tumor falls under the tumor classs PNET, primitive neuroectodermal tumor. Michael's tumor has been classified as the very aggressive tumor and has fallen under the stage 4 category for his type of tumor.
Michael faces months in the hospital. He will have to endure radiation and chemotherapy over several months.
Michael's entire family has made a promise that at least one family member will be with him through this entire process. He will have a parent by his side at all times.
We are asking to raise money to help with all the new expenses that are now their "norm" of having a child with cancer. The money will go towards helping Michael and his new financial costs, but also for Michael's older brother, Matthew Suarez. We want to try as hard as possible to keep Matthew's life as "normal" as possible with his parents always being at the hospital and him still going to school and so on. Matthew has to have a babysitter before school to get to school and more.
ANY HELP that you can give, through money and prayer will be recieved with gratitude and love. It will only be used for the care of Michael and what short comings come from that. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT AND PRAYERS!
We have been blessed by God that Michael's scans and lumbar punctures have been clear.
Michael has been released from Memphis. He and I are so glad to be home! Michael's blood counts will continue to be monitored through OLOL in Baton Rouge, a St. Jude affiliate. He will continue his rehab at St. Tammany Hospital Outpatient Rehab. He will do homebound for school to finish up third grade.
We want to thank everyone for their prayers, thoughts and generous support! We thank you for the continued prayers not only for our family but for all the children and families fighting this terrible illness.
Michael will receive this therapy for 6 weeks. Kennon, Andres and Michael have been overwhelmed by the amazing outpouring of prayers, support and donations. They are forever grateful and humbled by it and love getting the notes and or texts from so many. Please keep Michael continuously in your thoughts and prayers!
Constantly praying for Michael, Kennon and the rest of the family!
