Our 4 year old niece Greta was recently diagnosed with stage 4 Burkitt's Lymphoma and is at the beginning of a six-month chemo plan that will keep her in the hospital almost every other week between now and October with rehab into 2020. We may be biased, but Greta is the most amazing, fierce and joyful child who makes friends with everyone (she is already a hit with the nurses) and we all are devastated that she has to go through this.
Although Greta is receiving excellent medical care at Mott Children’s Hospital, this is going to be a very challenging time for everyone involved, especially her parents Emily and Misha who will need to rearrange their lives to provide Greta with round the clock care with a lot of uncertainties. It’s also likely to have a lasting impact on Greta’s life.
We want Emily and Misha to be able to fully focus on supporting and dedicating time to Greta during this long road to remission while also having time to spend with Nell, Greta's 2 year old sister. They should not have to hesitate due to money, so please consider donating what you can. Donations will go toward living expenses such as house cleaning, gas to and from hospital, parking, food, mortgage, and keeping the lights on, as well as trips to chemo friendly places such as indoor water parks, museums, and aquariums - on any days that Greta feels well enough to venture out during and after treatment. We appreciate all the support, good energy, happy thoughts, and prayers as well. Let's all help them beat this together!!
