The thought of illness can cause the utmost distress and havoc in our lives, but when someone you love is affected, especially your child, the news is earth-shattering, and everything stops moving around you.
On August 10th, 2017, the parents of 13 year old Gabriel Antonio Barron were given the most suffocating and haunting news no parent ever wishes to hear; Gabriel was diagnosed with Grade 4 Brainstem Glioma- a rare and serious form of cancer that makes up approximately 10% of all childhood cancers. For anybody who doesn’t know, Stage 4 means this is the most aggressive form that this cancer presents itself in.
Gabriel began his battle with Stage 4 Brainstem Glioma on August 9th 2017, when he appeared to have be having symptoms of a stroke. A CT scan was performed and the following day, the heartbreaking news was given. Gabriel, a 13 year old, previously healthy child, who delved and accelerated at sports, to include football and Kung Fu, had his entire life changed in the blink of an eye. We are attempting to raise as much funds as we can for Gabriel and his family, as the next 6 weeks will be difficult, as he faces 6 weeks of radiation, and chemotherapy. We are asking for any and all donations to assist Gabriel in his fight and stand against Brainstem Cancer, his mom Amanda Barron, and his Father Eddie Barron who are good hearted, kind, genuine, God loving people. Any amount helps, and if you can’t, then prayers are more than enough and more than welcomed as well. Gabriel is a El Paso Kung Fu San Soo warrior and Brother, a great hearted kid, and a loving son, with nothing but love in his heart. He's not ready to give into this cancer, and by donating, you give him and his family the ability to fight with everything they have and then some. Thank you!
