Love for Arley

I have been fortunate to know 2 and a half year old Arley and her mama Ashley for a few years now. Recently, little Arley was admitted to the hospital, and tests came back for what no parent ever wants to hear.

Arley was just recently diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma. In short means cancer of the muscles in her neck. Initially the tumor blocked little Arley's airway and she had to be intubated for days to allow her to breathe. Since then she has undergone surgery to remove the tumor, however the doctors were only able to remove less than half of the tumor.

This is causing her to face months of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. These treatments will need to take place in Massachusetts, causing Arley and her mom to have to relocate for the duration of treatment. Considering the circumstances, Arley and her one and only parent, Ashley need our support. Please consider donating to this beautiful girl who has such a difficult road ahead of her.

I'd like to make sure that Ashley and her daughter are supported as much as we can. Thank you all for reading this and contributing and sending love. -Ashley E.
