Help Baby Flash Ortega Beat Cancer!

On October 22nd 2017, 7 weeks early God blessed my sister Makalia, her husband Jon and their 2 year old son Pheonix with a new bundle of joy baby Flash. At just 18 days old, their world was turned upside down when doctors discovered that Baby Flash had a tumor coming from his adrenal glands and compressing the spine. It was putting so much pressure on the spine that it was causing the baby great pain. Many different teams of specialist came together to discover two important things: the tumor was cancerous and that if it wasn't removed, it could paralyze the baby. Flash was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer and had to undergo 8 hours of surgery when he was under 3 weeks old. Though nothing could have prepared them for the heartbreak and devastation of this past month, Makalia and Jon feel that God gave this baby to the right family for will love him and fight along side him with everything they've got. They have been at the hospital day in and day out. Medical bills are starting to pile up, so we're asking all of our family and friends to help out if you can. Any contribution helps and will be greatly appreciated!
