Mission: Trip to Disney World

Spencer is a 5 year old from Bath, ME. His journey began when his family would have nights where Spencer would cry all night long and days where he wouldn’t leave the couch. His symptoms got more complex and he started limping.

Spencer appeared to be getting better, but the limping came back. An MRI revealed that his entire pelvic area was full of lesions. About 15 doctors came to the room and told the family that they think it’s cancer. They moved forward with the CT scan and it revealed a very large tumor stemming from his left adrenal gland. Bone marrow biopsy revealed that his bone marrow was roughly 80% consumed by disease and he was later diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma.

Our mission is to raise $10,000 in the month of April to send Spencer and his family to Disney World in Orlando, FL.

Creating each show was like the old “time to make the donuts” commercial. And then, a few weeks ago I broke…
