Hello, my name is Jody and I work with Zoey’s mom. I am so sad to hear the unfortunate news of this little girl and feel helpless to be able to give this family the support they need. I felt setting up an account for Zoey is something that might help with their struggles. I am begging all to please do all possible to help this baby and her family in their time of need.

This sweet little girl has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and this will not only take an emotional toll on her family but a huge financial burden as well.

We are asking for any donations to the #Team Zoey Fund” to help fund finances that this family will be enduring due to Zoey’s lengthy fight for her life

All donations for this angel and her beautiful family are greatly appreciated! God Bless you all!

Thank you!

So what has Zoey been up to? It's been awhile. In December she had 10 days of radiation. Then in April she had another 10 days of radiation. She was on two different oral chemos that cost about $8,000 a month and now she is on a compassionate care trial for ONC201.

If this new trial does not work we are anticipating a 1-2 month time frame until her tumor comes back. Throughout the entire ordeal she has gone to California, Florida, is planning a trip to DC all funded by her family as the go fund me has been for medical expenses only.
Zoey loves school and is so upset when she doesn't get to go and see her friends. So right now, Zoey has been through a lot, she still has a lot more to go through, but she is so very happy and excited about life.

So it has been awhile since our last update. Right now Zoey is in kindergarten in Fairport NY and she is also a Fairport Red Flag Cheerleader.

Over the summer Zoey completed 12 rounds of radiation and has received Avastin and Nivolubum ever other week. She will continue to receive the chemotherapy and immunotherapy inhibitor every other week until her body stops responding to it.

In July we were told we had very little time left with her and the fact that she has rebounded the way she has is truly a miracle. Zoey lost her ability to walk, talk, move and function daily. She is now back to being her spunky self which we are grateful for!
Zoey is a Cheerleader!

Zoey is currently in Germany for her 5th round of Immunotherapy. She had her latest MRI scan on February 28th. The scan showed that the cyst portion of the tumor has disappeared however the tumor is starting to swell where the fluid was initially located. This is concerning as it means that this may be the start of progression. Zoeys tumor is a Grade 4 diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma so it will start to progress and now it appears is the time.
Zoeys parents have reached out to multiple doctors for options to deal with progression and her tumor. Right now the most promising is a CED surgery and chemotherapy infusion program in the UK. This program will insert 4 catheters into Zoeys brain and distribute chemotherapy drugs directly to her tumor.
The surgery and initial drug infusion cost $90,000 USD. This does not include room, board, or travel. The UK doctors have requested a start date for Zoey to be March 22nd.

While the procedure is risky is it is the most promising option at this time to help destroy her tumor cells and get her to the point of no evidence of disease. Please help consider supporting Zoey and her family as they venture on this journey to save her life.

Zoey is back in the states for the time being. Her immunotherapy treatment is going well and all her doctors, German, London and Rochester are all very pleased and happy with her attitude and status. She is a typical 4 year old right now, and that it what we want.

Her parents need to continute this Germany trip, once a month, in order to maintain the immunotherapy treatment. The initial two treatments came to a grand total of $35,389 USD. This is for the treatment only and was not inlcuding any travel, lodging, or other needed expenses.

The remaining treatments will be lesser in value, approximately $10,000 USD for just treatment. This will have to be paid monthly, for the considerable future, as long as Zoey is able to travel and does not progress.

We all want her to stay a happy four year old as long as she can. So treatment and trips will have to continue
Princess Zoey!
