Edward was deemed “Wolfman” by his Uncle Joe from the first time he saw him because Edward had tufts of hair on his ears.  That name stuck with him, and now the family uses it to refer to him.  He is a friendly child and takes a little time to warm up to anyone new, as most children do.  He loves to play with trains, bounce on the trampoline and do all the things children do at the age of 5.  He has a little sister, Delphina, who is 2, who he loves very much, as well as his mother and father.  And now Wolfman needs your help to overcome an obstacle that no child should have to endure.

Edward was diagnosed with B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (commonly referred to as A.L.L. Leukemia) on December 8, 2016.  A.L.L. is a cancer of the white blood cells, which are known as lymphocytes.  Lymphocytes are made by the soft tissue inside the bones (bone marrow).  Treatment for this diagnosis in a male is 2 to 3 years long.  Based on the diagnosis, the doctor informed us we would not be going home and would have a lengthy stay at Women and Children’s Hospital to begin Induction Phase Treatment, which consists of chemotherapy.  Our stay was expected to be 28-days long and thankfully we could go home after 23 days.  During Edward’s stay, a family member had to be present 24/7 to be with Edward, and Edward’s sister remained home and required care. 

Edward is home now and continues to make improvements with his treatments.  Being home helps with the cost of traveling back and forth from the hospital, which is about a 45-minute drive one way from his home in Eden.  Edward will continue receiving outpatient treatments / chemotherapy through Roswell Park Cancer Institute for the next 2 to 3 years.  All proceeds will go toward Edward’s medical costs.

On behalf of Wolfman, his family and friends, we thank you for your support.
