The youngest son, who is 3-years-old, was diagnosed with choroid plexus carcinoma, grade 3, which lives in his brain and spinal fluid at only 14 months old. It is a life-threatening brain tumor. He underwent a year of treatment including a few brain surgeries, multiple rounds of chemo (costing hundreds of thousands of dollars per treatment), radiation and many other treatments to try and survive. The family had to uproot their lives and move to Utah where their son underwent treatment at Huntsman Cancer Institute (who helped save my mom as well).
The parents, who are working multiple jobs, are very grateful their son is still alive but would be eternally grateful to offer their children a small Christmas. They only own one car which holds five passengers. The car does not have a front window and the family of six have to take multiple trips to reach their destinations. The seatbelts in the back don't work, forcing the car seat to be placed in the front seat of the car.
The family has no couches in their home, they sit on boxes and broken chairs at their table, no computer, no keyboard, basically nothing. They needed to sell all their assets to pay for their son's treatments.
The children would like clothes, toys, dolls, bicycles, and games for Christmas. The parents would like to afford a date night for them to enjoy dinner together. Any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated as my family works hard to provide a Christmas to a family who has given everything for their son's life.
