Hurled at us like an unexpected bomb in our guts, doctors found in little Angelina a horrid 9 cm tumor on August 18, 2011, which they later deemed a malignant neuroblastoma, a deadly childhood cancer. Nurses and surgeons quickly wired a central line in our two-and-a-half-year-old princess's chest, serving as a central intravenous for chemotherapy and nourishment in the dire months ahead.
Whereas once little Angelina delighted in doctors visits (often forcing her family to play sick or dead so she could fix us) she now dreads them, as they are daily pricking and poking in an attempt to destroy the now 11 cm tumor (August 27) between her kidney and liver.
Pumped with a constant morphine drip for the painful ache, Angelina has not allowed her mom to leave her side.
This is hope. She is strong enough to robustly grip her mother's
neck; she will be strong enough to destroy this devilish growth until
God heals her or until the end of her chemo treatment and therapy.
We, the Sforza family, dedicate this webpage to fundraising for the
anticipated hundreds of thousands (or even millions) in healthcare costs
and other related costs as her parents dedicate 110% of their time to
healing their daughter.
Put yourself in Angelina's shoes. Suddenly, your parents, family and friends not only worry about your life but (unfortunately) about the bills it takes to save it.
Now, although that is the worst of it, the best part is you can actually be an intricate part of fighting this cancer by becoming one of Angelina's Guardian Angels.Together, in strength and numbers, we are helping to make each day a better one for Angelina, Giovanni, Diana and Luigi Sforza. Your PRAYERS WILL allow Angelina, her brother and parents to continue to focus all of their energy and strength on WINNING this battle and destroying the cancer monster that's literally growing inside her.
First and foremost, we ask for your prayers, your support and your love. Your comments mean so much and we read every bit of them and will read many of them to Angelina! So, please continue to do so. We intend to have a party once this nightmare is over.
