Tess' Funeral

Tess Siefke blessed the lives of many when she made her debut on February 12, 2003. In April 2012, she was diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia (FA) / Myelodisplastic Sindrome (MDS) 

In December 2012, the first Bone Marrow Donor was found. After a few setbacks, she was set for her first bone marrow transplant January 2013. 

In August 2014, it was discovered that Tess's MDS (Pre Lukemia) was progressing rapidly. A new donor was found and in September she was admitted to Cinncinnati Children's hospital. Unforunately due to many setbacks, Cinncinnati Children's Hospital became her home away from home until February 20, 2015 when she earned her wings. 

Today, Tess' family finds themselves faced with planning a funeral instead of celebrating her 12th birthday (which was last week, but she was too weak to have a thorough celebration) as had been their hope.

Any gift toward's Tess' funeral will be greatly apprecited by the family.
