Meet Rey: August 2017

Rey’s mom writes, “Reynaldo, my son was diagnosed with Choroid Plexus Carcinoma back in Jan. 21th 2013 with a Grade 3 tumor which was removed. He went through chemo and radiation which did not work. In April 2014 two tumors grew and both were treated by gamma knife radiation, the treatment removed one of the tumors and the other was barely visible but was inactive. After two years in remission Rey began to complain of headaches and dizziness, he had a scan and in May 1 a new tumor came back. Rey is on the IBRANCE clinical trial in Washington DC and we travel back and forth from PA for treatment and follow-ups often.

My son is a strong kid with a great big heart, his only concern is for me. One day Rey told his me that, “The only thing I’m worried about with dying is leaving you behind. I’m not afraid I know what heaven is like and I know up their I won’t suffer and my cancer will be gone.”


Please pray for this sweet family who are in need of your prayers and support. Rey’s birthday is later this month and he will turn 16. He loves to fish although hasn’t been able to do it for a while. He also likes the Steelers, Giants, and Phillies sports teams and enjoys playing games with friends online. With his gentle smile, sweet laugh, sparkling eyes, and amazing unwavering faith – this child has made an imprint on our hearts forever.

If you would like to provide financial assistance to directly help support this family, they have a Facebook fundraiser to help with travel back and forth as well as medical expenses. #TEAMREY #FINDACURE
