For those who believe, each day is a gift from God. We often take each sunrise and sunset for granted. When we feel good, our children are thriving, and our lives fall into a routine, we usually do not think about "what-ifs." But "what if" one day our lives were impacted in such a way that each sunrise and sunset were given the utmost importance as if they were our last, what if one of our children were debilitatingly ill, and our so-called routine becomes drastically altered? This is the current reality for our dear friends, the Kitsinis family. Their middle daughter Kiki has been recently diagnosed with A.L.L (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia).
Kiki is the strongest girl we have ever met. She has had many adversities in her short life but the greatest of these was on her 18th birthday (2-12-2019) when she was given the cancer diagnosis. Her senior year of high school will now consist of chemotherapy, losing her hair, many medical treatments, and doctors’ visits, instead of Winter Formal, finals, Senior Prom, and graduation. Immediately after her diagnosis, she was hospitalized, and an aggressive form of chemotherapy began.
Kiki is a warrior and has met every adversity thrown at her head on. She is ready for the fight; she is ready to beat cancer, but she needs your help. The cost of cancer treatment is tremendous and while her family is thankfully insured, insurance does not cover everything. It does not cover many prescriptions, certain procedures, expensive medications, frequent doctor visits, the potential reality of more hospital stays, and it definitely will not cover the cost for one of her parents to be with her during this battle. As a parent, can you ever fathom the thought of not being able to be there for your child in their darkest hour and not be able to physically provide for them as well?
We sincerely thank everyone for their prayers, positive thoughts, and genuine support for Kiki's fight. If you are so inclined to give any support to help in Kiki's treatment expense, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
