I am writing on behalf of our son, Sean.  He was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma on Feb 19th, 2014.  He started his first round of chemo two days before his 12th birthday.  He has already gone through four rounds of chemo, and major surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible on June 11th.  We have spent the last four months going back and forth to Children's Hospital of Phiadelphia, two hours from home, and Penn State Hershey Childrens Hospital.  After tomorrows surgery, we still have another full year of chemo, radiation, and bone marrow transplants.  Along with unexpected hospital trips for fevers and infections. This has taken quite the toll on us as a family, emotionally and financially.  We also have a 17 year old son, Chris, who we are trying our best to be there for.  My hours were cut down to 15 hours per week, because I need to be with our son.  My husband is on disability from a fall at work.  Needless to say, my 15 hours a week aren't cutting it.  Any amount you can contribute to us as a family would be greatly appreciated!! All monies will be going to help us get our son safely to the other side of the beast we are fighting!!  Please keep Sean in your thoughts and prayers, we need them!!!  Thanks so very much:)
