40 Friends of CURE
Spotlight On Dominic!
On Monday, November 30, 2015 Dominic was diagnosed with Stage 1, type 2 Rhabdomyosarcoma (Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma). On Wednesday December 9, 2015, Dominic began his 42 week cancer protocol. This protocol consisted of weekly chemo therapy treatments, some lasting 8 hours, others 30 mins. In February of 2016, he started his 5 week radiation therapy. After 30 total chemotherapy treatments, and 25 total radiation treatments, Dominic is now cancer free! He followed his protocol without any delays and he kicked cancer’s butt. On Wednesday September 14, 2016, he proudly and anxiously rang the Bell of Hope with his family by his side.
Throughout all if this Dominic has maintained a pretty normal life. He still attended pre-school with all his friends, joking with the teachers that his hair is going to grow back blue and curly. He still enjoys riding his 4-wheeler and Dune buggy with his little sister, Sofia following behind. His favorite food is still Macaroni and Cheese, and he still dislikes mushrooms. Over all, Dominic is an inspiration to his family.
Focus of This Month
WRDGA Ladies’ Golf Tournament
WOW!!! You really chipped in FORE our kids. A HUGE thank you goes out to the WRDGA who chose CURE to be the recipients of the funds raised through their annual golf tournament. A WHOPPING $2, 945 was raised for CURE – just shy of the equivalent of two months of parking passes for our families. We cannot thank you enough for thinking of our organization!
Trick-or-Treat for CURE
We would like to thank all the kiddos who thought of CURE this past October and went trick-or-treating for CURE. We would like to especially highlight our friend Braxton, who alongside his cousins, raised $75.18 for CURE!
Thank you for being so awesome, Braxton!
Aquinas Girls’ Modified Soccer Team
The Aquinas Girls’ Modified Soccer Team knows that every penny counts with CURE! They collected change during the month of September for a total of $255! They wanted to recognize that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and they sure did recognize it in a big way! Thank you, girls, for thinking of our children and their families.
