Atticus' Fight Against Cancer

2019 - Atticus is still fighting cancer, Osteosarcoma.

On Thursday May 16th, almost a year after Atticus' limb salvage surgery in 2018, Atticus had a leg amputation to continue in his fight against cancer.

Irene was just about ready to go find work again after everything seemed to have calmed a bit. But Atticus' cancer is back so it will be another year of unemployment. Because she is receiving child support for her 3 children she is unable to get TANF. So, here we are again asking for donations to help Irene, Atticus, Anneka, and Angelena get through another year of battling cancer.  Irene is still needing help with rent and bills and general expenses for the year.


2018 - Donate to help with Atticus’ fight against cancer, Osteosarcoma.

The money will be used for monthly/daily expenses that his single mother Irene, will need to pay while she is away from work, and  taking care of Atticus and her two other children Anneka, and Angelena. 

Rent, food, transportation, and utilities and any unforeseen medical costs. 

We don't know how long this journey will take. Chemo can take up  to 60 weeks depending on how well the first round of chemo goes.
