Funds raised through Arnie’s March directly benefit care for the children and families in Central Florida battling childhood cancer. The March supports the pediatric clinical trial and research program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children to fund crucial research efforts to fight childhood cancer.
This year, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer is participating in more than 70 clinical trials to develop more effective treatment methods to fight childhood cancer.
In August 2018 Stella started to back track on her motor skills and loosing balance. On September 10th 2018 we decided to take her to Nemours ER, in Orlando and they imminently did a Cat scan and found a mass in the back of her brain the size for a baseball. They scheduled surgery the next morning September 11th 2018 with DR. Gegg and removed all the tumor. On September 14th 2018 they diagnosed her with a rare cancerous tumor called ATRT. On Tuesday September 25th 2018 we decided to go with the Boston protocol at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital and was transferred. She began her journey of Chemotherapy and radiation on September 28th 2018! As of August 23rd, 2019 Stella is now CANCER free and treatment free. We are currently now in remission and Stella is thriving successfully everyday. Please join us to March with Stella to find a cure and raise money for Childhood Cancer! #STANDINGWITHSTELLA>
