As you can imagine, neither Dana nor Steven have been working since Brendan entered the hospital. Both exhausted their leave through their employers after Brendan was born, never expecting to go through something like this. Unfortunately, even during times like this, the reality of a mortgage, car payments and life expenses still remain. Dana and Steven are enduring gas and food costs while remaining in Charlottesville. There will undoubtedly be very high medical bills to come.
I am asking for your support to help Brendan, Dana and Steven through this very difficult time. Your donations would help this family now and in the future. Every dollar will make an impact. Donations as little as $1 can make a difference. Thank you for taking the time to visit this page and for considering how you can help this precious little boy and his amazing parents!
A little information on Neuroblastoma:
"Neuroblastoma is a rare cancer in which a solid tumor (a lump or mass caused by uncontrolled or abnormal cell growth) is formed by special nerve cells called neuroblasts. Normally, these immature cells grow and mature into functioning nerve cells. But in neuroblastoma, they become cancer cells instead. Neuroblastoma most commonly starts in the tissue of the adrenal glands, the triangular glands on top of the kidneys that produce hormones responsible for controlling heart rate, blood pressure, and other important functions. Like other cancers, neuroblastoma can spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body, such as the lymph nodes, skin, liver, and bones. "
