This is the story of the Grande family and their son's fight to conquer Leukemia.

On February 9, 2008 Elaine and Vincenzo Grande welcomed into this world, two beautiful babies; their precious twins, Larissa and Vincenzo (Enzo) Grande. What joy these babies brought to the lives of their parents and their friends and family. Weighting at only 3 pounds each at birth, they called the hospital home for almost a month. By the grace of God and their wonderful Doctors, they were able to go home with Mom and Dad on February 28, 2008.

Larissa and Enzo are now almost 4 years old old and by the looks of the, they are happy beautiful twins. There is however a vast difference that lies between them. On June 26, 2011 Enzo was diagnosed with Acute lymphoblastic leukemia. (ALL) is a form of leukemia, or cancer of the white blood cells characterized by excess lymphoblasts. Malignant, immature white blood cells continuously multiply and are overproduced in the bone marrow. ALL causes damage and death by crowding out normal cells in the bone marrow, and by spreading (infiltrating) to other organs. The overall cure rate in children is about 80%, and about 45%-60% of adults have long-term disease-free survival.

While the family has medical coverage. It's impossible to plan for a tragic life event like this. Every month, the bills come in and over time they have accumulated into the thousands. We are asking for your help to support Enzo's current Chemotherapy treatments, doctor visits, spinal taps, blood transfusions, pallets transfers.. and the list goes on and on. Enzo will have to continue to undergo treatment until he is 7 and a half years old. Your contribution will ensure this family is able to continue to give Enzo the care he needs now and for years to come.

Even though this is a sad story, there is one thing that we all are counting on to turn it around; Enzo's will to conquer and beat cancer. On some days, you would never know his is a child living with cancer as his smile is ALWAYS so bright. This story is also about the the love, prayers and support that are surrounding this family and a wonderful community that has pulled together to support Enzo and his family.
