Please help Us help 12yr. old Lori Strauss.
3/4/15. Lori is happy & as healthy as possible. She needs to be at her best to even receive Chemo. Her Dr.'s won't go forward until her body is strong enough for the next treatment. Which brings Blood & Platelet transfusions into the picture. (She's had 20+ so far) -that's just to get chemo :( Some days it's just an extra back or foot rub other days it's so much more. Crushing & managing too many pills , changing & cleaning port dressings, flushing central lines, making appts., being super shuttle, giving shots at home, making meals, sleeping in hospitals, the list goes on. It's not always easy. It's physically taxing, emotionally draining along with financially demanding. Lori is fighting a rare form of childhood Cancer. Stage 4, Group 4, rhabdomayosarcoma Alveolar. This is the 2nd time round for her. Extensive radiation therapy twice. Now her second time with nasty Chemo. She's been so tough. Doesn't complain or ask for much. The cancer has spread from her forearm to her chest right next to her heart :( Her medical costs are very tough. This child deserves much more than we can provide. If you've met Lori, now 12yrs old, you know she's pretty tough, not fighter-like, but lover-like; She fights with her heart. Just HATE seeing her miserable & sick :( Please help make Lori's fight against Childhood Cancer More comfortable :)
Lori's loving family :)
