Help 6 Year Old Liliana Fight Her Rare Cancer

 

It is with deep sadness that we write this about our niece, Liliana.

 

Liliana Sanchez, the 6 year old daughter of Josh Sanchez and Jamie Davis, was admitted to the hospital after experiencing dizziness and problems with her coordination. She was diagnosed on May 20th, 2019 with a very aggressive malignant brainstem tumor - Glioma. This form of cancer is extremely fast growing and inoperable due to its location in the brainstem. 

 

Liliana is a first grader in the Elyria City School system with a bright and feisty personality. She loves animals and dreams of becoming a veterinarian. She is bravely facing her new reality with her 9 year old brother, Makai and her parents. The family could truly use your support and prayers to help them during these challenging times ahead.

 

Since her diagnosis, Liliana has had several serious procedures and biopsies that carry a risk due to the placement of the tumor in the brainstem. She will soon begin a series of radiation treatments at the Cleveland Clinic as the team of doctors and her parents work to find the best treatment plan possible. They are exploring all options, including relocating to participate in clinical trials. 

 

We have received numerous offers of assistance to help them with all aspects of her treatment, including traveling to and from specialized children’s pediatric cancer hospitals. Josh and Jamie are unable to work while they care for Liliana as she battles this rare form of cancer. Donations of any amount would be tremendously helpful to support the family with medical bills as her treatments will be extremely expensive.

 

If you would like their family to receive the full donation without incurring fees, there has been a bank account set up at Fifth Third Bank. Deposits can be made to account number 7927368527. Please feel free to contact us directly with any questions. 

 

Our entire family has been shocked and devastated by Liliana’s diagnosis. Please keep us in your hearts, thoughts, and prayers.

 

Thank you,

 

Nick Davis & Mike Sanchez (Liliana’s Uncles)
Rachel Sanchez Cotto (Liliana's Aunt)

On behalf of Josh, Jamie and the kids, we would like express our deep gratitude and appreciation for all of the donations, prayers, and support for Liliana during this difficult time. We are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity and help spreading the word.

Update on Liliana’s health - Last Wednesday Liliana underwent surgery to place a medical device called a shunt which relieves pressure on the brain caused by fluid buildup. The doctors were able to biopsy the tumor last week and the official diagnosis is a Grade III Anaplastic Astrocytoma. This cancer is an aggressive growing form of Glioma, or a tumor on the brainstem.

The next step is applying for a clinical trial at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. If accepted, the family will have to relocate to Cincinnati for at least six weeks to begin treatment.

Please continue to keep Liliana and her family in your prayers. This Wonder Woman loving, stuffed animal collecting, and Earth conscious little girl is so brave.

Again, we are forever grateful at the outpouring of love and support that has been shown towards Liliana and her family. Thank you.
