Gianfranco lives with his family in Santa Barbara, CA. He is the sweetest second grader (soon to be third grader) you have ever met! During his second grade year at Adams Elementary School he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He is currently at a hospital an hour away from his home awaiting more test results. He will need remain at the hospital to recieve treatment. These funds will directly support the families medical bills. Gianfranco's mother has had to leave her job in order to be with her son during this time. Since he is already staying at the hospital full-time, the bills are already beginning to acrue, and the family is in need of not only support with medical bills, but also money to buy groceries, etc. (since they are not able to work right now...funds are even more limited). Given the nature of his diagnosis, he will likely miss school during his third grade year. We hope to raise enough money as soon as possible to support Gianfranco's treatment, as well as his family's needs at this time, so that they may return home happy and healthy and ready to return to school and life as soon as possible.
