Extended Version: Patrick is an 8-year-old boy who presented the following symptoms: sleepwalking, slurred speech, and loss of balance. He was diagnosed with a common, but aggressive form of brain cancer at the beginning of May 2016 after visiting the Emergency Room. The campaign will provide gas expenses related to transporting Patrick to the Children's Hospital each day for radiation treatment, any uncovered medical expenses or prescriptions, and other needs of the family such as groceries, toiletry items, bills, and school supplies. *Patrick's prognosis is 9-21 months and he does not have a life insurance policy. He has a teenaged sister who is 15 & also a toddler sister who will be turning 4 in August. Both parents are ex-military, originally from New York and don't have family support in Virginia.
