On November 30th, our guys were guests of honor at a fundraiser in Roseto degli Abruzzi. It was held at ristorante Il Parco dei Poeti in honor of a little girl named, Iaia, a fellow citizen with Gianluca of Abruzzo.
Iaia is a six year old little girl diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a malignant tumor that develops from nerve tissue. It usually occurs in infants and children.
Iaia’s family is doing everything they can do help her live a wonderful life as well as fighting to find a cure. Their hope is to bring her to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where they are researching treatment based in immunotherapy.
You can read about Iaia and how you can help on her website, here —> Iaia’s Website.
As a nurse, I see my fair share of heartache, and sometimes, my job requires me to work from a strictly clinical perspective to allow me to be the support that is needed for my patient and their loved ones. But “pediatrics” and “cancer” are words that I can’t make fit into the same sentence–not ever. I have to full-heartedly support any effort and anyone that takes a stand to help fight it.
Fight, on, sweet, beautiful girl! I’m praying that the world brings you to New York!
Enjoy the pictures, videos and articles about the event.
