I Have Faith.

I Have Faith in the Strength of my son.
I Have Faith in the Strength of my family.
I Have Faith in the Strength of my community.
I Have Faith in Modern Medicine.
I Have Faith that any obstacle presented to man, can be overcome by man.
And I Have Faith that every tomorrow’s dawn will be brighter than todays.

Right now, I have Faith, but I have no control.

So many of my dearest friends and family have asked, "What can I do to help?" and until now I have not had an answer.

But now, my answer is to Give.

Give us your thoughts and prayers.
Give us your hugs and kisses.
Give us your patience and understanding.
And Give us the Best chance at Success!

Laurence has been diagnosed with a form of Lymphoma rarely found in children. We have spoken with numerous Doctors and determined that the best and least toxic course of treatment is not available at Seattle Childrens Hospital. The treatment is however  available through the adult oncology center at Fred Hutch. We don't yet know what portion insurance will cover but we do know that right now the family is being challenged with a loss of income, increased childcare and transportation costs as well as any unforeseen cost that may present while Laurence undergoes chemotherapy. If you feel compelled to give financially, please know that every donation, large or small, will go towards Giving Laurence the best chance at defeating cancer and living a Long, Happy and Healthy Life.

Thank You With All of Our Hearts,
Melissa and Alessandro Silva

You son is a son of all of our community, even if we don't know him. We feel the pain and lack of control that you have expressed and send our best wishes to you and your family.
