Adam’s Army of Love

31316574_1531595879508879_r.jpegMy name is Jackie Mancino and for those of you who know me or my family, my nephew Adam is our whole world.

Adam is 5 years old and will be turning 6 in the next few weeks. As the only baby in our family we are continuously enamored by his witty personality, his extreme energy and his unwavering bravery. 

Adam was recently diagnosed with a retinoblastoma, which is cancer of the eye. 

He is currently blind in his left eye and will need to undergo surgery eventually leaving him with a prosthetic in the future. 

Adam has two amazing parents, Michael and Katherine  that are willing to do anything for him as well as a family standing by them during this painful and uncertain time. 

It is anticipated that there will be an overwhelming amount of medical expenses to treat our favorite pal as well as travel to an out of state facility, a prosthetic and other unplanned expenses. 

In an effort to support my family I have set up this page as not only a call to action for  Adam, but remind those of you with children or children in your family that these precious, undaunted, hopeful little people deserve everything.

Please know that Adam, my family and I appreciate any donations as a result of this page to aid in Adam’s anticipated road to recovery. Thank you.
