Henry is a six year old boy who was diagnosed with stage-four Neuroblastoma in August of 2015. Henry has fought bravely through two bone marrow transplants, multiple rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, and more medical procedures than than any six year old should have to endure. Recently, Henry's Mom and Dad learned that these treatments have failed to stop the cancer's progress. As treatment options diminish, they plan to enroll in a clinical trial.
Henry's Mom would like to take Family Leave to spend time with Henry, but without her income the family would be unable to pay their mortgage and essential bills while she is home with her son.
Henry's parents, Heather Young and Henry Chang Sr., are a Teacher and a Special Education Aide in the West Orange Public School District. The couple have dedicated their lives to working in the public schools and reside in West Orange as well. Both Henry and his younger brother, Derrick, are enrolled in West Orange Public Schools. It would be wonderful for the town to come together and support this family in their time of need.
Please help this special family raise enough money to pay their mortgage and essential bills for a few months and allow Henry's mother to take family leave and spend time with her son. Any amount would be appreciated.
