The Story

On January 31, 2014, Little Athyn who is 16 Months old was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.  He is currently being treated at Boston Children's Hospital and receiving the best care possible.  Athyn will endure multiple rounds of chemotherapy and will also be having surgery to remove the tumor that is located near his kidney.  This will most definitely be a long journey for little Athyn and his family.  Athyn is blessed to have amazing parents, a wonderful big sister and a very strong support system by his side.  Please open your hearts to this family who are in need of our support and continued prayers.

Fundraiser Updates

Posted on February 7, 2014 by Amy Andre
To all of our Supporters...just an update on our little fighter.  Athyn has been home for a few days now.  He has a visiting nurse who comes to see him everyday to administer his daily shot.  Despite what little Athyn has been through already, he continues to be in good spirits and always has that beautiful smile on his face.   He is happy to be home with his big sister, Kailey.  He has had good nights of rest, which is critical during this trying time.  Athyn and his parents will be making weekly trips to Boston Children's Hospital for lab work, IV fluids and Blood Tranfussions as needed.  In three weeks Athyn will once again be admitted to Boston Children's Hospital to undergoe his next round of chemotherapy.  This cycle will repeat itself until our little fighter has won this battle.  With all of the prayers and support the Sousa family has received and the exceptional medical care Athyn is receiving, I have no doubt that he will win this fight.  A huge thank you to all of you for your prayers, support and donations.  We are all truly humbled by the extreme outpouring of support.
