The purpose of this fundraiser is to donate enough money to cover the medical expenses, meds, travel expenses, etc. for Wes Pak.

Wes is a cheery, compassionate, and loving 5 year old little boy that was recently diagnosed on June 24, 2011 with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer. They discovered a large mass taking up most of the left side of his abdomen which is pressing against many organs causing him to feel full all the time. At the time of diagnosis the mass was too large to remove. He will have 5 rounds of chemotherapy, possible surgery, radiation, and a harvesting of cells that will last for a year to a year and a half. Every 3 weeks he will be admitted to CHKD for 5-6 days of therapy. This September will be very hard as Wes would be starting his first year of kindergarten. However, due to his illness he will have to have a tutor at home, and will not get to enjoy the interaction with other children or riding the bus like so many look forward to. This year has been a rough year so far. Wes' father was laid off from work, he became a big brother on March 13, 2011, his mommy had to undergo her own surgery on June 15, 2011, and now this. His mommy is the sole income for their family, and she also is a full time student. We appreciate any and all donations, thoughts and prayers! Thank you very much.
