Abel Williams, our Little Lion

   Last week 3 and 1/2 year old Abel woke up with a bad tummy ache.  By the end of the day he had been transferred from the local ER to Upstate Galisano Children's Hospital (Syracuse, NY) due to finding a large mass on his Adrenal gland.  
   Abel's dad (Stephen), mom, & extended family have stayed by his side throughout the fearful period of the unknown & after a long week of tests/procedures Abel was diagnosed with Stage III Neuroblastoma, high risk.  
   Abel just completed his first 5 days of chemotherapy with the strength and courage of a little lion but will have a year of further chemo along with a follow-up surgery, to remove the tumor, still ahead of him.  
   This is a long road to recovery with all the emotional & financial tolls that it will entail.  Some of Abel's treatment is covered by insurance but the family will face a number of unexpected expenses over the next year including co-payments, travel expenses for chemo every 2 weeks, and housing expenses.  
   Due to the co-parenting situation, both Abel's dad & mom need your support so they can continue to be by his side throughout this difficult time.
   Your prayers & support for Abel & his family are greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!! 
   We will keep you updated on Abel's progress.
WE LOVE YOU ABEL! ~Aunt Kristin
