Help Dominic with Life Saving Cancer Treatments!

49960190_1596833142773382_r.jpegWe can all agree it's been a tough year.  For the Militello family it has been overwhelming and they now need your help!  Dominic, Carly and Valentin ( 2 years old) want to thank you in advance for your support, this life saving cancer treatment could not happen without you. 

Dominic has the unfortunate diagnosis of Stage 4 Small Intestine Cancer.  He has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment for the last 10 weeks. 

This week they found out that Dominic is eligible for a new targeted therapy that has had great success with this aggressive cancer!  Unfortunately this new treatment is NOT covered by insurance.  As you can imagine, it is incredibly expensive, and he many need to be on this therapy for years.  Your generosity can help them go forward with this new treatment as this is the next step needed to fight his cancer.

As some of you may know, Dominic has a genetic disposition for colon cancer.  He has been closely monitored since childhood and has had two major preventative surgeries to protect him from developing cancer.  So it came as a shock that this cancer is so aggressive and so far along as he is very closely watched by his doctors.  Both he and Carly have been out of work for months due to COVID.  Dominic and his family could use all of the financial support they can get.

The money raised here will go to medical bills, medication, future treatment costs and most importantly this new this new targeted therapy that is not covered by insurance. 

Please urgently forward this to as many people as possible and encourage friends to do the same (even those who do not know us may think it is a good cause to donate to).  As a community we can help Dominic and the Militello's with the financial burden that lies ahead so Dominic can focus on his recovery, and fight this as a family.

If you know Dominic, he is the most positive, loving person and always wears his heart on his sleeve.  Under these circumstances, this had not changed.  We are optimistic and thank you so much for your help!49960190_1596833173431006_r.jpeg49960190_1596833075174096_r.jpeg49960190_1597847270818157_r.jpeg
