Urwick Del Olmo - Cancer Warrior

This is a fundraiser set up for Urwick Del Olmo who was recently diagnosed with Osteosarcoma and  Lung Cancer.

He was involved in an ATV accident in August, from that day on Urwicks leg started to bother and give him trouble. He had 4 stitches inside and 4 outside his wound. The doctor told him to rest on it for a while, so he did... after that he started to play sports and runing on it like he usually did before, as time went by he noticed that the pain started to increase. It was thought to be a pulled muscle or something so he started rubbing/massaging his leg and going to alot of people to see what they could do. Everyone thought the same thing, pulled muscle. Finally, it got to a point that he couldnt walk on it, so he traveled to Katy, Tx., and one couldnt take the pain anymore and he and his sister, Sabria, rushed to the ER, and were given different results. First, theywere told he had a bone infection and that with a little antibiotics, it will all go away. After more tests later on that night, they told him there was a possibilty he had cancer. The doctors couldnt give them anymore answers that night. After waiting a couple more days, he was transfered to a cancer center where his condition could be treated. The doctors performed a biopsy on his leg to make sure what they were telling him was accurate and true. Later that day, the doctors ordered an MRI of his whole body, only to find out that it he also had it in both of his lungs. The following day he was transfered to Texas Children Cancer Center in Houston, Tx. Where he is currently at receiving chemotherapy every two weeks and where he stay for the rest of his treatments, including more surgery. 

These medical expenses are mounting and the Del Olmo family could use all the help they can get to keep Urwick in a good medical setting and continue his treatments in hopes of a full recovery. So, in true good Utilian faith, lets band together and support Urwick with all that we can - love, prayer, finances - it all will go extremely appreciated during this trying and difficult time. <3
