Nico Michael Santoli is a 22-month old boy who was recently diagnosed with a rare childhoodcancer, Unilateral Retinoblastoma. UR is a rapidly developing cancer that can affect not only Nico’s vision, but also his life. UR does have a very high survival rate; in fact, it is among the highest of all cancers.
Nico is under the care of someone of this disease’s most renowned doctors, Dr. Jabbour at the Thomas Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience and Dr. Shield of the WILS Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. They are performing a surgical chemotherapy known as intra-arterial chemotherapy. Fortunately, Nico is responding very well to these treatments. Unfortunately, the medical bills and hotel costs are rapidly adding up.
On January 22, 2012 we are hosting a benefit dinner in Nico’s honor to help raise money for this brave young boy and his family. The dinner will be held at Season’s in Washington Township, NJ. Along with the dinner there will be raffles and auctions to assist in the fundraising effort.
Tickets are $100 per person and are sold ahead of time. We ask that you help join Nico’s fight and donate, either monetarily or in the form of an auction item, to a cause that is close to the hearts of many.
