Fighting for Nyssa

edited September 2015 in THE MAIN WALL
Anthony Reikow is the trainer at B.J. Teronni Company, and a great guy. His 16-year-old daughter, Nyssa, was just diagnosed with T lymphoblastic lymphoma, a very rare non - Hodgkin's lymphoma, and every parent's nightmare.

Nyssa is facing 27 months of chemo, but having caught this thing early, the prognosis is very good.

She'll be spending the next several weeks at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Nyssa's friends have gotten together to do THIS.

If you can help, please do.

Thanks.

Dan

    Nice! $1,440 toward a $5,000 goal.

    Katie McCabe, who lived across the street and grew up with my girls, got a rare cancer. She had a 5% chance of survival. She beat it, and just gave birth to her fourth child.

    NEVER give up.

    A couple of days ago, Anthony shared some further details about his daughter, Nyssa. She could use your prayers. The tumor in her chest is shrinking, but she's battling blood clots. So she is back in hospital.

    Got some great news from Anthony this week - Nyssa's growth has all but disappeared as a result of her treatment so far. The doc's feel she's in remission, but the treatments will continue for another 25 months or so. The kid's tough, I'll tell you that!
