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

Meet Colton: May 2017

Colton’s mom writes, “Colton was diagnosed October 20, 2016 at the age of 13 with Leukemia. He has been a real trooper fighting his battle with cancer. Colton has keep a positive attitude despite all the hospital trips each week and not being able to go to school. He is currently being treated in Baltimore. Each week we drive up to Baltimore and stay at the Ronald McDonald House. Since we are regulars at the house he loves meeting the new kids and showing them all the games and activities they can do to help them past time being away from home. He always has a smile on his face no matter if he is feeling bad from chemo or not.

I am so proud of Colton for learning about cancer and knowing how to take care of his body while fighting this disease. He can name every pill he takes each day and when we talk to the Dr. he asks questions to understand more about cancer. Colton is my super hero son and we will fight and win this battle together.”

Please keep our friend Colton, his brother Connor, and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
