A quick trip to the walk-in for a bellyache sent 3-year-old Abel to the emergency room for x-rays, and then on to Upstate University Medical Hospital. Over the next few hours, Abel's mom, Jen, came to discover that her beautiful son has Stage III neuroblastoma and is classified as high risk.
Today, Abel is fighting for his life. This incredibly strong and bright little boy is already undergoing treatment at one of the finest hospitals in the area. Jen has said many times how lucky she is to be surrounded by caring, competent professionals and how lifted both she and Abel are by the outpouring of support from friends, family, and community.
As a single mom, there are always so many facets of life vying for attention; Jen needs our support so she can focus all of her beautiful attention on Abel's healing. This fight will be long and hard, and is most effective with an army of supporters. Your contribution will keep Jen at Abel's side and help ease their transition to this new normal.
