#MikeyStrong

Michael Schneider is 11-years old. People who know him will tell you that he is one of the most fun-loving, goofy, polite, caring, smart, athletic and tough kids that they know. Last week, Michael was diagnosed with Metastatic Neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system growing in his adrenal gland.  The cancer has metastasized throughout his body and will be difficult to treat. Michael begins his battle tomorrow. 

Mikey will fight. He is the true definition of a fighter. He will fight and he will beat this. Mikey's family is equally as strong. They are some of the best people you will ever meet. Mikey is blessed with an amazing family support system that will help him get through this awful disease. They are going to dive into this fight head-first, and they will beat it together. 

No child should have to deal with cancer. No family should have to pay a dime because of this awful disease while watching their loved one suffer. This GoFundMe page has been set up for those who would like to financially contribute to his fight. There will be co-pays, co-insurance, and other costs for the next year and a half to two year treatment and hospitalization. The hope is this page rises to a level that will allow the Schneiders to solely focus on Mikey's road ahead.
