I am joining because my 12 year old son, Thomas, is now battling leukemia for the 2nd time. He was first diagnosed at age 3 and went through over 3 years of chemo. He relapsed at age 11, and is now undergoing another 3 plus years of chemotherapy and fighting for his life. I recently read an article in CURE magazine about the lack of funding for childhood cancer and I was appalled. Please let me know how I can help to spread awareness. I will be happy to share our story in any format needed.

The Road to Transplant -

My CarePage Update - 9/17/09 - www.carepages.com/carepages/thomasmolina



Hi everyone,

This is Thomas, and I am going to have a bone marrow transplant, but I’m ready to beat this cancer once and for all. Thanks for caring. Father Stephen, a priest from our church, reminded me today that I am not alone, and that there are lots of people thinking about and praying for me. If it wasn’t for you, I would not have a reason for living. Thomas—



This is now Lisa - All went well… Continue

Thomas has Relapsed in his Central Nervous System

Posted on September 2, 2009 at 8:30pm 11 Comments

We learned today that Thomas has relapsed in his central nervous system. The results of the spinal tap he had Monday showed leukemic cancer cells in his spinal fluid. He has never had leukemia in his spinal fluid until now. The preliminary results of the bone marrow came back clear, but we a waiting for results from the Mayo Clinic to see if there are any signs of possible relapse there as well.



Regardless, Thomas will have to go back into very heavy chemo (heavier than ever before)… Continue

Hey Lisa.
Can you call your Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson about supporting the $10 million in the Labor Health and Human Services Appropriation subcommittee?
Go to http://capwiz.com/curesearch/home/ to call, etc. Maybe get your friends and geogroup to do it, too? I know you are busy and I hope that your son is doing well. This funding affects all of us... Thank you.

Hi Lisa,
I did get your emails last night, thank you. I plan on coming on Thursday as long as everything is the same with Caleb. We are at the end of delayed intensification and his counts as of yesterday are next to nothing so as you know anything can happen between now and then but I will let you know regardless if I won't be there. Thanks!

Hi Lisa,
I'm saddened of the way that we have to meet, but I've been very grateful of the people that I have met. Anyways, here is my email snyberg@att.net and I would be happy to help with planning if you need it. Also anything else I can do to help people become more aware of childhood cancer. I have a big mouth and in my almost 31 years I have never backed away or down from much of anything.

Hi Lisa:
Well, we have had the walk four times now but I don't think I am a pro... We have two co-chairs of our Omaha CureSearch Walk who are great and a super steering committee. I can maybe hook you up with one of the co chairs if you want to talk to them.

We did most of our money with just parents of the kids who asked their family, friends and co workers to walk with them. Some teams had 100 walkers or more. Each person pays $10. to walk and registers ahead of time. Then that person asks their family, friends and co workers to donate. Before you know it, you have 1,000 people walking.

Some teams got their work places to be a corporate sponsor or otherwise donate to the team. Some churches do a share the plate for a good cause. Lots of teams had fundraisers. Some kids sold crafts and lemonade. Some people had garage sales. It really is a huge community effort each year. Someone should do a film about how it all comes together for a cause. It is amazing!

Good luck with the planning meeting for your walk. It will be great. CureSearch is really organized and there to help. You will love doing the walk and seeing so many people come out to support the kids. Austin is a good college town, too, so maybe you can tap into that. Your walk will build each year. I am excited to see them happening all across the country!

Yes, I would like to invite my rep. Let me know when a date had been decided on. I have not done stuff like this before, so it is a first! Might need some advice on how to proceed! Will touch base with you once this w/ends stand is over with.

Hi Lisa
We are doing a lemonade stand/garage sale in georgetown this Saturday. ALSF had sent People Magazine info on some stands and the magazine called me and said they would send a photographer! Now, I have not heard from them since, so will have to wait and see. Apparently they are doing an article on ALSF and wanted some photos of stands. Will let you know if they turn up! I am trying to get the Georgetown paper to write something, but it is frustrating trying to get anyone in "high" places to do something. We have even written to the Austin American Statesman. I really think we need to start at the clinic level. I supported Relay for Life (big time!) until I read stuff on PAC2 and now have changed my focus - but I have seen RFL posters in the clinic! Ishani's chemo is next week. Will try to call you sometime soon... in the meantime, e-mail me at dashw@aol.com.
