There were countless people coming into Michael’s room, and an overwhelming amount of information being thrown at them about his condition, plus tons of forms to fill out. Thankfully, NCCF was able to step in with assistance, guidance and advice. NCCF was a safe haven for them amidst the storm.
Read The Story
Michael was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma at the age of 13 and his family greatly relied on the support and assistance of Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF) through this difficult time. Everything happened so fast for them: emergency surgery, critical condition, intensive care. Michael and his family were in shock, sleep deprived, scared, confused and not sure what to do next. There were countless people coming into Michael’s room in the ICU, and an overwhelming amount of information being thrown at them about his condition, plus tons of forms to fill out. Their heads were spinning. Thankfully, NCCF was able to step in with assistance, guidance and advice. NCCF was a safe haven for them amidst the storm. During and even after Michael’s last chemo treatment, NCCF was there to help with his studies. Michael was able to graduate 8th grade on time, even though he missed four months of class, and still obtain the honor of receiving the “Straight A’s for Three Years” award. When it was discovered that all he had been taught while receiving chemo he had forgotten because of that same chemo, NCCF again stepped in and helped tutor Michael back up to speed. Michael is now a senior in high school with a GPA of 4.697 and a class rank of 15/615. Shortly after Michael was diagnosed, his father Tony was suddenly laid off from his job. NCCF was right there lending assistance and support in numerous ways, including encouraging words, Wal-Mart gift cards, gasoline gift cards, and a stop at the NCCF pantry. Unless one walks in the shoes of those who have experienced their child battling a serious illness it is hard to understand how much impact even the smallest of kind gestures has on the families struggling to cope. Through the generous support of donors like you, NCCF is committed to always being there to lend assistance at no cost to the families they help.
