2 years old (3 in January)
Stage IV Neuroblastoma
Miles to Treatment: 2177 (Salt Lake City to New York City)

“Travel For Care has been a huge help to our family this last year. In June, we found out that our 2 year old daughter, Elaina’s treatment for stage IV neuroblastoma was not working. We had to travel from Utah to New York City where there were trials that she was eligible for.  ALSF was able to book our flights in less than 3 days and get us to NYC to start treatment.  For  our next 2-month stay in NYC, ALSF sent us numerous gift cards to help with the cost of food —within one day of us contacting them. We are so appreciative of this Foundation. Thank you Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for helping make this horrific journey a little bit easier. We love you guys.”
