Hello, our names are Adam and Jamie Macaluso.
In June, our energetic and beautiful 8 year old daughter, Lucy, was diagnosed with Ewing 's Sarcoma. Ewing's sarcoma is a type of cancerous tumor that forms in bone or soft tissue. Thankfully, we were able to catch this cancer in Lucy at its early stages, as she was experiencing extreme swelling and pain near the tumor area. The doctors are optimistic with her prognosis, but she still has an extensive treatment plan and a long recovery road ahead of her. Lucy will need to undergo many months of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. We are so lucky to have the best doctors in NJ working on curing her and we cannot wait to celebrate her full recovery when this is over.
A little background about our family - Jamie and I are both public servants. I currently serve in the United States Marine Corps and have proudly served our country since 2000. I was recently promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and have been deployed to several locations during peace and wartime, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and Honduras. Most recently I supported the COVID-19 relief effort and hurricane
preparedness and assistance in the tri-state area, as well as North Carolina and Louisiana. I have been a Police Officer within the Borough of Ramsey since 2008. My wife Jamie has also dedicated her career to helping children, serving as a kindergarten teacher and reading teacher in Franklin Lakes since 2006. Prior to this, she served in the Arlington Public Schools in Virginia, teaching English language learners.
During this trying and difficult time that our family is experiencing, we have helped and continue to help the community. We are respectfully asking if our family, friends and the public can assist our precious daughter in her fight against Ewing's Sarcoma. Medical bills are accumulating rapidly and any assistance would be very much appreciated by our family. Words cannot express our gratitude for any help we receive. Thank you so much.
Please also keep Lucy in your prayers!
