Michael Hebert of Troop 319

Michael Hebert, Vicky and Peter's youngest son, was diagnosed (April 29, 2019) with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, an extremely rare form of cancer with only about 350 new cases each year in the U.S. Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma affects the muscles of the limbs and trunk and the pain associated with these tumors can be mistaken for a deep bruise or injury. Michael is Stage 4. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy. 

As friends and family let us offer our positive thoughts, prayers and green energy to support this family as they undergo this long & tough battle as long as they need. Medical expenses as well as all associated costs (insurance co-pay / loss of work / travel expenses to see experts / etc.) will be excessive. The financial goal for the Michael's Go Fund Me will likely be reset several times. Please give what you can. Please feel free to share this link to anyone who would like to donate. Your love and generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your interest in supporting the Hebert Family.
