SAVING AMALIA (Can u save me)

Amalia says that when she grows up she wants to be a veterinarian to help animals. She is the sweetest and kindest 7 year old girl. Unfortunately my niece was recently diagnosed with cancer inside her spine near her skull. It is an extremely rare cancer called Differentiated Chordoma Sarcoma.Treatment options are very limited in California. Amalia complained of headaches a few months before she was diagnosed with this horrible cancer.A few weeks after her diagnosis the doctors told us that she would need two surgeries. The first surgery is to stabilize her neck together with a halo in order for her not to become paralized which she did 4 weeks ago. She has been at Children's hospital for the past seven weeks. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Her next surgery will be to remove the tumor as much as possible in Boston. Her insurance only covers her in California. We are trying to raise money to provide her with the best possible care which at this point is Boston because that is where they specialize in Chordoma for children. This type of cancer is so rare that proton radiation is her best chances of surving! Her parents are broken so I am doing what I can to help them. They took time off work to stay by her side. As you can imagine this is every parents nightmare. We love her more than words can say and no child should have to experience all of this. We humbly ask everyone to help us every little bit counts. We believe in miracles!
