Stephen, a 16 year old sophomore at Old Bridge High School (Old Bridge, NJ) is currently and courageously battling Stage-4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma for the past three years. He's now receiving his weekly doses of chemotherapy, already had one round of a bone marrow transplant in 2012 and now is in line to receive another transplant in the next month. Stephen, a player on Old Bridge's Lacrosse Team, faces each day with a smile and great outlook on life "“ no matter the day. Stephen's mom, a single parent who works per-diem as a Physical Therapist needs to be by Stephen's side, for each chemotherapy appointment, doctor visit and of course during the stay at the hospital for the bone marrow transplant, plus every follow up appointment. Now is the time to help the Bartlett Family. Let's put them at ease to not have to worry about covering hotel stays, lost wages, deductibles, items not covered by insurance, gas to go back and forth to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and much more. Stephen has been battling, like no other, like a true Knight, for the past three years "“ his focus needs to be on facing the opposition, his stage-4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma, not worrying about day to day costs and money. Please help. Every single cent donated goes to Stephen and his family. Let's Make a Difference and LACROSSE OUT CANCER!! #TEAMSTEPHEN
