On September 19, 2022 our family was devastated to learn that our 15-month-old Granddaughter Alayna was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a very rare type of cancer.
As we await a full prognosis and a treatment plan, she remains in the hospital and will be there for the next 45 days. Alayna was a very happy and active toddler, walking and playing and now unable to walk and has no leg function. All of this transpired over a two-week period. This cancer is very aggressive and fast-moving, which prompted immediate chemo treatments that began Wednesday, September 21, two days after admission to the hospital.
As with any critical illness, there is a strain emotionally, physically and monetarily on Alayna and her family. Due to overwhelming requests from family and friends, we have created a place for donations to help with fuel, food expenses and impending medical bills.
We appreciate all the kind words, continued prayers and love from many friends and family.
