Families undergoing the treatment process need help in shouldering the financial burdens associated with treatment, such as:

  • Mortgage, rent, and utility bills
  • Unpaid deductibles, co-pays, and medical bills
  • Parking, fees, and transportation costs
  • Meals and lodging away from home
  • The costs of private nursing and home care
  • Certain household expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Plus many other expenses too numerous to mention…

My name is Anthony and I am a high school senior. I am 17 years old and was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2014. 

I have been fighting cancer but what makes me strong is the support from my parents, my brother and the amazing care team at the Stony Brook Childrens Hospital

I like to take photos, I love music, and mathematics is my passion. I love to go to the beach and I enjoy playing soccer. 

Life is a journey –just when I was ready to go back to school and look for a part time job, cancer struck me back but I am a fighter and I will beat this cancer again

Cancer does not stop me.
