 FAIRFIELD, CT
Charlie Capalbo is a close family friend who was just diagnosed with cancer near his heart and lungs.  He is a wonderful young man that just completed a great season as the goalie for the Fairfield, CT high school hockey team.

His official diagnosis is Non Hodgkin's lymphoblastic lymphoma T cell Stage 3.  It is not in the spinal fluid (brain) or bone marrow. While it is not going to be a picnic, an extremely long and difficult course of treatment is ahead of Charlie, it is treatable and it is more importantly curable. Treatment plan as follows, total duration is 32 months of chemotherapy​. Initially daily for a week then 2 times a week for 8 1/2 months then then once a week for year and a half. He will remain in the hospital for approximately another week or so if he tolerates the chemo well.

We are raising money to support his family in their time of need.

Thank you so much for your support!

From Charlie's mom - "Hello friends, just a quick update...today was certainly a long treatment day but he made his counts (phew!) and had all of his scheduled drugs, including his lumbar puncture, which he did with less sedation than he's been having them with, and he still did well. We reviewed the PET scan results with his doctor and it definitely was great to hear how well the treatment is working! So while it hasn't been fun and is likely to get worse, it will all be worth it to stomp out the cancer! Thank you all a million times over for so many positive messages, in many forms, as well as prayers and healing wishes...all of which are working! Xo"

Charlie's aunt again. The outpouring of support from total strangers, and the greater community makes our family feel so much stronger as we have started Charlie's war against cancer. To each one of you, donations large and small, we are humbled and at the same time reminded that most people are essentially good and kind . Thank you for showing us that it's not just a belief. It's a fact. ♥

I'm so sorry to hear about this diagnosis but how wonderful that the whole community is pulling together to support him and his family. I want to let the family know of a wonderful organization called Friends of Karen that helps children (through age 21) who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families. The family might want to check them out at www.friendsofkaren.org and apply for help (financial, emotional, advocacy, sibling support, etc.). Wishing all the best to Charlie and his family.
