Skylar's Medical Fund
No one could exhibit this more beautifully than Skylar Sisson, a vivacious 14 year old who attends Schuylerville Middle School in Schuylerville, NY. Skylar loves her family, her two beautiful sisters, her volleyball team, her two dogs, ANYTHING chocolate, and all things Paris!
In January 2016, Skylar fell.
Not like missing a spike during a volleyball match but a complete blackout. Her mamma bear of a mother, Marie, immediately took Skylar to the pediatrician to find out after several days the absolute WORST news a parent could hear:
Your child has a brain tumor.
Skylar's mother, Marie, is a hard working, local independent business woman who cares for everyone she meets.
Skylar's new "papa", Nicholas, is a dedicated firefighter who works full time fearlessly for the Saratoga Springs Fire Department.
We are Team Skylar.
We ask you to join us to help this proud family make life a little easier by offsetting the growing medical and traveling expenses.
The brain tumor Skylar is battling is so RARE that it is only found 5% of time in children, with only 50 cases found total nationwide.
The family has already consulted with Albany Medical Center and will be getting second opinions from NYU and Boston Children's Hospital, all while Skylar's sisters are home trying to have normal lives. The Coluccis have very little family in the area and rely on the kindness and loyalty of friends. Both parents must miss work during this crisis and keep the family together, all while battling a faceless enemy...
Please share their story and share this page. We are so thankful in advance for your help, support, and kindness. We promise to update the page with any information we acquire.
At the time we ask politely for space towards the family as they absorb and tackle all the new developments while scheduling Skylar's surgery and recovery.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
