On Tuesday January 15th at 9:30 pm tragedy struck our 13 year old daughter. Roberta, an accomplished cellist and Volleyball star was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in her left shoulder and she is left handed. By midnight she was on the pediatric oncology ward of Sacred Heart hospital 2 & half hours away from home. We've been here with her for the last week while she has undergone tests & consults from various Dr's , but the costs are already starting take their toll. Our savings are already depleted and we have a long road ahead of us. With 30 weeks of chemo and radiation therapy ahead; surgery to remove the tumor & more chemo, radiation & surgery ahead it will be a long road and uncertain outcome. We're looking at the complete loss of income from at least one of us so we can help her work through this intense treatment schedule set to start in a few days. With 3 other children we'll soon see things become even harder. Please help us take care of our entire family while we work through this difficult time. Anything will help. If you can't donate money you can donate in other ways. We can use hotel vouchers so we can stay close to her and the hospital & gift cards to help purchase incidentals, fuel, etc. Contact us via e-mail to find out where you can send such things. Anything will help us out greatly.
Thank you all for your help and please pray for us.
