My family and I are trying to raise money for my nephew Steven Attebery's radiation and medical bills. Steven has recently been diagnosed with extramedullary plasma cell myeloma which is a rare cancer. Steven is 24 years old, raised and born in Yuma, AZ. He was raised by his great-grandma Norma Palacio Hathaway after his father had passed when Steven was a baby. He has worked as a cook in Yuma from round table pizza, buffalo wild wing and other places. He is a sweet young man with a huge smile and has so much more to give to the world.
Recently he had to take a leave of absences from work so he can start his radiation. We know there is no cure, but he is staying strong and ready to fight hard! Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Steven knows how special and amazing he is. This will be along battle , But we know he can maintain it and go into remission with prayers and the right treatment. We thank each and everyone of you who has taken time to read his story, all the love, support and donation.
Just wanted to thanks everyone for still checking in on Steven. He has completed 25 days of radiation in 5 weeks. Sadly the radiation has really made him very ill. He has lost a lot of weight because he hasn’t been able to eat or drink in the last two months. But he finally has a feeding tube in and praying he will go back to normal soon. In a few weeks he will start therapy to allow him to learn how to eat again. This has been a sad and long journey but we know he will get better. We just need him to get strong again that way he can fight the rest of the cancer and go into remission. Thanks again everyone for all the prayers and love. God Bless!
