Every Little bit helps Ariel.
Ariel's disease has once again progressed and she is facing her biggest and most likely her final fight in what has been a grueling 2 yr fight against a rare aggressive muscle cancer.
Currently Ariel's parents are trying to balance a mountain of growing medical bills and expenses not only from Ariel's treatments and insurance denials but the lingering effects of the house fire that displaced the family back in April.
Her Mother, Crystal has been on leave from work for almost a year now and while the families income has lessened the expenses are mounting with increasing costs related to treatments, travel, and supportive care. The costs will climb even more with experimental therapies on the horizon and the quiet and heartbreaking fears of memorial costs lurking.
Now the family faces their hardest challenge yet, trying to fill a lifetime of memories into the next few weeks.
There is a rush to get Ariel and her family to Disneyland in the next week as well as local trips: another SF Giant's game, 6 Flags Discovery Kingdom to see her beloved tigers and lions and the possibility of Christmas in October and anything else that might make these next few days, weeks as amazing as possible for Ariel, her twin sister Elora and brother Ian.
Every little bit will help right now and is greatly appreciated.
It may seem like alot to ask and it is exceptionally hard for the family to admit they need any help but all are willing to put pride aside to honor a child who quietly and regularly gave every cent in her pocket to cancer research, animal charities or in one of her more inspiring acts, regularly emptying her pockets to give to the less fortunate people she would encounter often on her way to therapy. There is more than one homeless people in the Bay Area that have been shocked at the thin, grinning, child with no hair so obviously sick, thrusting her money at them begging them to get warm and something to eat.
Ariel has asked for very little, given so much and touched so many anything you can contribute to help us give back to this amazing child is appreciated beyond words.
With Hope and Gratitude
