Xander's Brain Cancer Fundraiser
He recovered from surgery well, but very recently found out that the cancer is spreading to brain and spine. Radiation will start next week.
Their medical bills, just in the surgery alone, will be extremely large and radiation treatment will only add onto the pile of bills.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?!
1) Donate! ANY financial assistance you can give will help. NO amount is too small.
2) Spread the Word! Foward this link to everyone you know via Facebook, Twitter and email (even people that dont know Xander directly may still want to donate)
3) Come back and donate again when possible!
Thank you in advance from their friends and also much love and gratitude from the family!
As you know, Oct 25 is 2 days away that means sadly it's been a year since we lost Xander. As you would expect, this is a tough time for the family. To honor them and show them some love, PLEASE restart doing "random acts of kindness" in honor of Xander. Please post what you do to Facebook and tag Denise and Brian to show them we haven't forgotten and we love them.
Thank you all.

Friday night's celebration of life for Xander was beautiful. Here are just a few photos from it. Denise and Brian both spoke with such peace and strength. Denise explained their peace as being "peace beyond understanding" ONLY through, and because of, their faith in God and heaven. They both spoke of Xander's big heart and always wanting to make people smile.
I have TWO final requests of you as we sadly wrap up this campaign.
First, will you please DIG DEEP into your pockets one final time for the Kuchinskis? Just in the last month alone, Xander spent many many days/weeks in ICU, had brain surgery, was transported twice via ambulance due to severe seizures, and Brian has not worked in order to be by Xander's side. The final bills will be VERY large and I ask one last time for your financial help.
Secondly, Brian asked at the celebration for those that loved Xander to "pay it forward" in some way. So I ask you this month, suitably Thanksgiving month, that we all do at least 2 "acts of kindness" to pay it forward in Xander's honor. When you do it, post it on Facebook for all to see and let Brian and Denise know what you did.
THANK YOU ALL for your love and support of the Kuchinskis. As life moves on for all of us, please reach out to this family periodically as their grief journey is just beginning and they will need our love and support for many many months and years to come.
Brian and Denise, we were so sad to recently hear of Xanders passing. He was most courageous in his fight and you have moved many people and influenced many lives by sharing his journey with us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
My husband died of Brain Ca. My heart breaks for Xander for having to go thru that horrible illness. I prayed for him and feel for your loss. RIP Xander. Thoughts and prayers for the family.
We are so sorry to hear about your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. We would love to make a donation in his honor, please let us know what foundation you would like it sent to.
We love you Xander! Prayer in hasn't stoped! You will win this fight!
Prayers still going out. Love, Kelly and Layla
Love and prayers for you from Deb and John
Shrinkage - Bryan Bishop
Sending positive energy and prayers your way!!
No one will give up on that special boy!!
Praying for your son, and your family.
So glad to hear of his wonderful day. God bless him. Laiden and family have been praying hard all day. Go Xander go! You got this sweet baby!
Was wondering if the treatment aired on 60 minutes this past Sunday regarding brain tumors being attacked by injected polio virus was seen or is option at his young age?
I have shared this page on my Facebook page with the hope that the students, faculty and staff of the school I work in will wear red in support of Xander tomorrow. My heart goes out to the entire family. My paraders are with you every day. Much love, Gina Resta-Downes, Bobby, Daniel, Christina and Piper. STAY STRONG XANDER!!!
I was with Denise on Saturday. Her strength astounds me. She said that she amd Brian both feel so peaceful. Angels are carrying them both at this time, no doubt. Xander, normally such a wiggly child, holds so still during his treatment. I stand in awe of this family. Brian and Denise are generous beyond measure. People have stepped forward, in part, because this little family has touched the lives of so many, even in crisis. Thank you Denise and Brian
If ever a family deserves" good karma" it is this family . Before this happened, they have done so much for our community. Always had free hays rides for all the kids. Xander is so full of life, I know he will beat this! :) All our love ,peace & prayers.
Even though we're in NY, my Red Ribbon will go up in Support. My prayers won't stop till your recovery. Keep up the good work Xander!
Stay strong! Our team walks for the National Brain Tumor Society this Saturday -Bridget's Brigade. We will make a race bib for Xander with his name on it. Keep on surviving, Xander!!! ( I am Christin klausner's neighbor! ) rooting foyou all
Prayers going out! May your family be strong and know that we are all rooting for Xander.
Xander, Laiden is hoping to see you well soon sweet baby. You are one of his favorite friends. He thinks you are awesome and says be strong. God bless you sweet baby boy.
