Nicole has recently been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia type B, as well as Epilepsy, at the age of 2 and a half years old.
Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia type B is an aggressive, fast-growing type of blood cancer in which too many B-cell lymphoblasts are found in the bone marrow and blood. Some of the symptoms include Lumps in the Neck, stomach or groin; Pain or fullness below the ribs, Weakness, Paleness, Loss of appetite & Shortness of breath.
Due to the severity of the disease, Nicole's only chance lays abroad, at the Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital in Italy.
The costs for Nicole's treatment are exceeding any expectations her parents could have ever anticipated. Nicole's parents, Daniela and my cousin Florin would love to talk to you about their plans, their fears and their feelings. Although desperate and overwhelmed with emotions, they remain hopeful!
If you can not contribute with a donation, please remember that a thoughtful message will be supporting Nicole and her parents emotionally on this painful journey.
Thank you for any help you can offer!
Andrei, Daniela, Florin and Nicole
