Jack Aniello Hodgkin Lymphoma Fund

In August of 2016 Tony's son Jack was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma right at the start of his senior year of high school. The diagnosis came after a cough had plagued him over the summer. He went through months of chemotherapy followed up by radiation.  In the spring of 2017 the chemotherapy and radiation had put Jack's cancer into remission. Throughout all of this, the Aniello family had to persevere through incredible difficulty.

After news of Jack's remission life slowly started to return to normal for him and the rest of their family. Jack and Ben started in their first year of college at UNL and Tony has been taking Cole all over the North and Midwest on different college visits. 

As the year went by Jack was having regular scans to make sure the cancer was still in remission. Each time Tony would come into work the day before one of those scans, he would admit to being a little nervous. Even though Jack seemed healthy and like all was going okay, Tony was still worried about his son.

Three months ago Jack had a scan that looked a little questionable but nothing for alarm. The radiologist suggested scanning again in three months instead of six just to be "on the safe side". Tony admitted that was not the news Stacey and him wanted to hear for their son, but they hoped it was just a sign of a cold from the winter.

On June 5th Jack had his follow up scan and unfortunately the results were concerning and required him to go in for a lung biopsy. Through the biopsy they learned that Jack has a Hodgkin's recurrence.

Jack will need to undergo more chemotherapy, possibly radiation, possibly bone marrow transplants or other treatments. Tony, Stacey and all the boys are in this together, supporting Jack in his fight.  

Tony has been an employee at PVS for 22 years, which is an incredible accomplishment. His family is now going through the unimaginable for a second time. Any help that can be provided to them would lift a small portion of the burden they are facing. The medical bills are just starting to roll in and the journey will yet again be long and arduous.  If you can help with any extra money, even just $5 or $10, that will help Jack kick cancer once and for all.
