Everyone wishes they had an Anthony in their life. He is one of the most positive people with a contagious laugh. He is a coach at our CrossFit gym and makes it his priority for every person to have the best hour of their day when they walk through the doors. He is a husband and a father, the kind that every man strives to be. Recently Anthony was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma, a rare kind that accounts for only about 6% of Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. This is an aggressive type of cancer that will require aggressive treatments. He will start with Chemotherapy and further information will be provided as we receive it. 

Your support will help pay for Anthony's Medical bills and treatments as well as his family's living expenses as Anthony will be unable to work while he undergoes treatments. You can follow Anthony's journey at www.bacastrong.com  or join his support page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/690800758055253/ 41113128_1565008264232703_r.jpeg

Hello Everyone! I wanted to share a quick update on Anthony. Most of you know he was able to go home after 3 days of his in patient Chemo at Mayo. He had a couple of good days and some not so good days. His white blood cell count went low and he had to go back in the hospital due to fever. We will update you again once we have more news on that but please keep praying!

Many of you have also reached out asking when we will raise his goal. His wife Shawnee has been working on finding out what insurance will cover toward the treatment plans needed so we have a more clear picture of what they are up against. In addition to needing to raise funds to try to keep him at Mayo, it has come apparent that we are going to need to work hard to raise enough money to ensure he will be able to get the stem cell treatment once he is in remission. Please keep sharing and stay tuned for events coming up to support Anthony on is facebook support page or bacastrong.com.

Anthony started Chemo last night. He has a couple more bags to get through before being released to go home. This will be the end of his first round and won’t have to do it again for another 3 weeks. He was in great spirits today and Shawnee is killing it watching over him and being by his side every step of the way.

Please pray for comfort on his final bags with minimal side effect, and for him to feel well enough to go home on Friday.
