The family and friends of Martin and Magda Gajovczyk are uniting to raise money to help thier son Patrick, in his battle against cancer.

Patrick Gajovczyk is only 4 years old and was diagnosed with a Supratentorial Primative Neuroectodermal Tumor (SPNET) in April 2012. These tumors are malignant and extremely rare; of the 2,200 children below the age of 15 being diagnosed each year in the United States, less than 40 of those cases are SPNET. Patrick's dad, Martin "Marty" Gajovczyk, a member of FDNY's Ladder 126 and his mom Magdalena "Magda" live in Far Rockaway, Queens, New York with Patrick and his older sister Ela. The family have been spending countless hours at Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital while Patrick underwent surgery to remove the parts of the tumor that could be reached, and while he undergoes chemotherapy in hopes of eradicating the remaining part of the tumor and preventing it from metastasizing. Please help Patrick by donating any amount that you can afford. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. The Gajovczyks would be honored by your kindness and support. 

On Saturday September 22, 2012 FDNY's Ladder 126 and Engine 303 will be hosting a benefit for Patrick Gajovczyk. This fundraiser will be at Malcahy's in Wantagh from 3pm-7pm. There will be 50/50 raffles, Chinese auction, live music, food and open bar. There will be a $ 50.00 door charge with proceeds going to Patrick Gajovczyk. For more information please visit
