On March 14, 2019  little Benji was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Type B.  He immediately underwent surgery to have his port placed so he can begin chemotherapy.  He is currently in Geisinger Medical Center in Danville (about an hour and a half from home) where he will remain for the next 2 weeks or so while he receives his first several rounds of chemo.  Afterwards, he will require frequent trips back for follow up appointments and additional rounds of chemo.  This is going to be a very long road for little Benji and his family as he will need three years of treatment to fight this terrible monster inside his body. 
We are reaching to family,  friends and community to help support the family during this difficult time. He may have a long road ahead of him but with all of our love and support he'll surely get through this.
Please consider donating to help Benji, his mother Georgia,  father Vince and his brother and sister get though this together. #benjilove
