Through some of the Strongest chemotherapy available 61 rounds of radiation and seven surgeries she has continued Stay optimistic and live life to its fullest.But now with her second surgery this year on top of weekly clinical trial rounds since January in Boston things are getting tight. So in order for her and my son to make it through this difficult time with the oncoming holiday season I am asking for any help from the community every little bit anyone can donate will help seeing as for now the treatments have no end date.
