Team Mateo

Mateo Ocampo is a sweet, loving, funny 3 year old twin. On August 14th, his mother, Yolanda noticed a small knot on his stomach. She took him to the doctor and he was later diagnosed with Clear Cell Sarcoma, a rare form of kidney cancer .  On August 18th, he had his kidney removed. Following surgery, Mateo underwent radiation.   He is currently receiving chemotherapy one week per month for the next six months.  Mateo actually has to recieve an adult dose of chemotherapy, even though he in only 3 years old!  But, Mateo is strong and resilient. 

Mateo manages keep a smile on his face through it all. He is happiest when he is at home with his twin brother Nico, and his big brother, Luca. As you can imagine, the chemotherapy treatments are astronomically expensive. His parents, Vince and Yolanda, need help paying these unbelievable medical costs. Please make  a donation and become part of Team Mateo. Every amount helps, no matter how small.

We really appreciate your support!
