The Story

Arianna was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on October 14th, 2016, 2 weeks after her 7th birthday. ALL is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood. According to the American Cancer Society about 2,700 children are diagnosed with leukemia in the US every year. ALL is the most common form of leukemia in children and is highly curable with immediate, aggressive treatment.

Arianna's parents, Aaron and Violet, are fiercely dedicated to their daughter and will do anything necessary to make sure their little girl is cured. But, treatment for Arianna will likely take 2 years and Arianna will not be officially cured for 10 years. Arianna also has a twin, Alex, who has been diagnosed with Autism. Arianna's older brother, Aaron Jr, is also on the Autism Spectrum. Both boys require time and attention from Arianna's parents to ensure that they are successful at school and at home. Violet can not work while Arianna is in treatment, which puts the entire family under tremendous stress. 

Arianna and her family are HUGE Raiders fans, so it's only appropriate that "Just Win, Baby" is the slogan of this fundraising campaign! Please support Arianna and her family by donating to help cover her medical and related expenses to make sure the final score is Arianna - 1, Leukemia - 0!

Hi all! We wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving. We are also pumped the Raiders won last night in Mexico City. We are, unfortunately, sharing some really difficult news this morning. Arianna just finished her induction phase, which is meant to put her cancer in remission.  She got her induction phase results last Thursday and we're sad to say it was not what anyone expected. She did not have the numbers the doctors wanted for her to have a successful induction. Arianna's cancer levels also did not meet the criteria for her to stay in the low risk group. This has been a shock to Arianna and her family. Arianna will start her next stage of treatment today. She is now considered high risk and has a lower chance of beating cancer. The next stage will consist of three extra medicines and a higher dose of chemo that will require Arianna to be hospitalized. Please, please keep Arianna and her family in your thoughts and prayers. Please also consider an additional donation as the holidays are going to be especially challenging for the Gutierrez family due to Arianna needing to have more aggressive treatment. Arianna will be tested again in 2-weeks and we'll make sure to update everyone. We deeply appreciate the generosity and love that you have all shown to Arianna and her family.

Hey Team Arianna! Arianna is feeling pretty great since the Raiders won their game last night against the Broncos. But, it's Monday now which means it's chemo day for Arianna. Arianna's chemo treatments will continue through the month of November. She really, really hates getting chemo, but understands she has to do it to get better. At the end of November Arianna will have a spinal tap done to see if the chemo has been successful in getting the cancer out of her body. Hospital bills are starting to roll in from Arianna's stay in the hospital. Please consider sharing this fundraiser to help the Gutierrez family with Arianna's medical expenses. Thanks for all of the support and love!!!
