Iolanthe’s Kids: Reese

Meet 3 year old Reese. Her Mom wrote: “Reese LOVED her new hat and box of goodies. She couldn’t wait to try out the play-doh! Thank you so much Summer and Janice!” 😉

A little more about Reese from her GoFundMe page: Reese was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in January, 2014. She was 2 ½ years old at the time. It has been 252 days since her diagnosis. Reese is receiving wonderful care at the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, both inpatient and outpatient. She has undergone countless chemotherapy treatments, two bone marrow aspirations, many blood transfusions, spinal taps, steroids, surgeries and therapy treatments. Her parents have stayed by her side, watching immunity numbers go up and down and reporting to family and friends on her blood counts and energy levels. Reese will continue to have these treatments for the next year, possibly longer. Reese’s parents have missed a lot of work to stay overnight for dozens of long and short stays at CHOP. Unfortunately, medical and other associated bills don’t get put on hold. If you can help Reese and her family to cover some of these costs, please donate. Any amount helps. Prayers for Reese’s recovery are also very much appreciated! Thank you! You can also show your support for Reese on her Facebook page.

We love everything within the box and learning something new about alpacas.” Please show your support for ZiRon on his Facebook page at #TeamZiRon, you can also help support the family on their GoFundMe page as well. We’re so glad you loved your Goodybox ZiRon!
