Ballinger Family Medical Fund

Brycen is a very special little guy. He and his twin brother, Crew, were born to the best parents in the world, Larry and Janelle, in May 2015.  Janelle was placed on bedrest for 11 weeks at the end of the pregnancy to keep the boys growing and getting stronger. After a brief stay in the NICU, Brycen and Crew finally got to come home with mom and dad. Since being home, Brycen had recently been struggling with abdominal pain and was taken to his pediatrician where an ultrasound revealed that he has a large abdominal mass that is very close to his abdominal aorta and surrounding his vertabrae. The doctors feel that it is neuroblastoma and he is currently being treated at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. So far, he has had a central line placed and a biopsy taken to determine the exact course of treatment. He started chemotherapy this weekend. This fund has been started for Larry, Janelle, Brycen and Crew to help with the cost of medical bills and other expenses related to his care. If you could please make a donation, no matter how big or small, it would be greatly appreciated! Even $5 is awesome! This family is very special and near and dear to so many people's hearts. Please, please consider making a donation to help them get through this challenging time in their lives.
