The Story

David Spracher is a fun-loving little boy with captivating enthusiasm!  He and his parents, Dave and Erika, and his little brother Camden (1) live in Simpsonville, SC.  They are rabid Hokie fans and proud alumni of Virginia Tech. 

At David's well-visit on his 4th birthday (4/21/14), a mass was found in his abdomen. 

David was soon diagnosed with bilateral Wilm's Tumor or nephroblastoma - a cancer of the kidneys.  His cancer is Stage 4, and has spread to both kidneys and one of his lungs.  Bilateral nephroblastoma (meaning "both sides") only happens in about 5% of Wilm's Tumor patients.  There are multiple tumors on David's left kidney, and a very large one on his right kidney. 

Little "Super David" has a long road of treatment ahead of him.  After 6-12 weeks of chemo, his right kidney and its tumor will need to be removed.  There will be months of chemo and/or radiation afterwards. 

The functioning ability of his left kidney is still questionable.  David may end up needing a transplant, depending on how the other tumors react to his treatments.  In addition, this nasty cancer has also spread to one of his lungs.

Event Information:

The Spracher family has a long journey ahead and their friends have united to hold a St. Baldricks style head shaving fundraiser on June 24th. All donations will go directly to the Spracher family to help with treatment expenses.

Our desire is that the Sprachers will not have to worry about finances during this incredibly difficult time.  This fundraiser was created by close friends of the Spracher family. Although they have medical insurance, there will be other significant costs including prescriptions, deductibles, out-of-network treatment, medical equipment, etc. that are not covered by insurance.
