Amadeo vs Osteosarcoma- His Fight is our Fight!

Amadeo Castillo, was diagnosed in August 2019 with Osteosarcoma, after a tumor was discovered by his doctors on his left leg. 

Osteosarcoma is a type of cancer that produces immature bone.  This type of cancer is most common in males under the age of 25.

After Amadeo and his family were given the options of the best form of treatment, it was decided that Amputation would be the route to go. 

So now Amadeo, a brave and energetic 10 year old who enjoys playing his video games and riding his bike will now have to adjust to a new way of life after surgery.  

We are looking to help alleviate some of the financial burden on his parents as the medical bills and everyday expenses they will be facing as they care for Amadeo battles against Osteosarcoma.  

Please consider making a donation to help Amadeo and his parents, Melody and Ramiro and their fight against Osteosarcoma
