Any child can have cancer. Nothing you do or say, not even love, can stop it. It doesn’t discriminate based on race, financial status, or the age of a child.
It was 2008, when Mickey Reeves was 10, he began exhibiting concerning symptoms and in January of 2009, he was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a highly malignant brain tumor. He would endure radiation and chemotherapy and more surgery to stop a massive GI bleed. He would lose the entire use of his left side and learn how to walk again. He received blood and platelet transfusions as a side effect of the chemotherapy. He would endure intensive rehabilitation.
Eventually over time, he fell back into the normal swing of things. After home tutoring, he would return back to school in 8th grade and in true Mickey fashion continuously make honor roll. His strength and determination has been incredible. Mickey is now a junior at Tappan Zee High School in Rockland County, New York. Last year he and his family learned there was a new growth and they have been managing his healthcare and again we stand united to support him in his courageous battle against brain cancer.
We have reunited again to continue our journey as Team Mickey and we need your support. No man, woman, or family is an island, we live in a community, a world where people pitch in to help when things get rough.
We are asking for any donation possible to help us get the best care for Mickey and work towards a cure for cancer. Every dollar makes a difference so be proud of your donation. Please help us to hold the hand of a child.
