Help Milo Sanchez Defeat Cancer

In October 2017, 3 month old Milo was diagnosed with Bilateral Retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. His mommy and daddy found the best doctors at Wills Eye Hospital and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. From October-March 2018, Milo's doctors had him undergoing chemotherapy treatments every four weeks. Milo also had EUA's (examination under anesthesia) to monitor the tumors located in both eyes.  During the EUAs Milo receives cyrotherapy and laser treatments to stabilize tumor growth. When not in Philadelphia, he receives weekly blood draws to monitor is blood counts. Furthermore Milo sees a Pediatric Ophthalmologist on a monthly basis to provide patching treatment to strengthen his vision.
An EUA in May 2018 uncovered 6 recurrences of the tumors. Unfortunately treatment requires a risky procedure known as Intral Arterial Chemotherapy (IAC).  A catheter is inserted through his groin, and travels to an artery to administer the chemotherapy directly to the eye. We are hopeful the IAC proves to be successful, however, it isi costly, and  has prolonged Erin's inability to go back to work as she must provide constant care for Milo and her family. Traveling to Pennsylvania on a monthly basis, along with the mounting medical bills have put an added strain on the Sanchez family. Please show your love and support by providing the family with a monetary donation. All donations are greatly appreciated, and will help cover both travel and medical expenses.
