Please help the Latko family

A week ago my sister, Erica and my brother-in-law , Jonathan, received news that no parent ever wants to get: their 3 year old daughter, Stella, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is being treated at CHOP in Philadelphia.  Stella also has Down Syndrome, which increases the chances of getting leukemia and developing complications from treatment.  As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for them and their 3 other children Ruby, River and Lainey who are missing their Mom and Dad as they juggle schedules so that one of them is always at the hospital with Stella and also home at night with the other kids. Stella started her cancer treatment this week and must stay in the hospital for the next 4-6 weeks to limit her risk of infection and monitor for side effects of the chemotherapy.  She has a long road ahead of her. Erica is unable to work and is taking unpaid leave so that she can be with Stella. Due to the loss of wages, the medical bills that are already mounting plus all the other expenses that come up when having to commute and be away from home I am asking that you please consider donating to help them financially during this difficult time. I know they would be extremely grateful for any help to ease the burden of this challenging situation.  I've included some pictures of Stella and her beautiful smile that lights up the room. 44666980_1578710052262060_r.jpeg44666980_1578710088585695_r.jpeg44666980_1578710108762450_r.jpeg44666980_157871014355231_r.jpeg44666980_1578710174959360_r.jpeg44666980_1578710206808191_r.jpeg
