As announced on September 1st (the eve of what would have been Anthony's 8th Birthday and on the first day of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month), See More

THE STORY:

We are Anthony's Avengers a community of super heroes joining forces together - our mission is to help Anthony fight against the evil DIPG monster! We have special powers that generate light and hope for Anthony and his family. We will use our voices to raise awareness for childhood brain cancer and do our part to find a cure!

As a bit of background ... Our 5 (at the time, now 7) year old nephew, Anthony, who is scheduled to start kindergarten at Mount Greenwood elementary in the fall of 2015, was diagnosed with a rare rapid growing brain tumor, DIPG. This is a disease that typically strikes at the heart of childhood and is desperately in need of a cure. You may have noticed gray ribbons hanging on trees around our neighborhood, these represent brain cancer awareness. Please join us in this fight! A cure for DIPG could lead to a cure for all cancers. In addition to hanging ribbons and spreading the word for support and prayers, we have setup an account to accept any donations for Anthony. The donations will be used specifically to help pay for: travel to doctors appointments, Anthony's Mom's (my sister Katie) portion of the medical bills that exceed what the insurance company will cover, costs associated with experiences Anthony would like to have during his fight (make-a-wish / "everyday is Anthony's birthday" type of things), and groceries & utility bills during Anthony's Mom's unpaid portion of her medical leave from work.

Please note: Any donations made will not be tax deductible as this is not an IRS recognized not for profit agency. Thank you in advance for all your love and support.
