Baby Arthur

This is a brief description of what Arthur and his family are facing.
Arthur was diagnosed in May of 2011 with a very rare and aggressive
bone cancer called Ewing Sarcoma. It is so rare it is estimated that in the US only 200 babies a year will have it. His chemotherapy started at
Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, in Portland, Oregon in May of 2011 and
requires around-the-clock parental supervision and care. It has been
stated that because of the aggressiveness of this cancer the Doctor
ordered for Arthur, an 18-month-old child, the same amount of
chemotherapy that would be used on a teenager. His chemotherapy will
last 6 to 9 months and a long recovery awaits him after that. The
family at the present time is working on fundraisers, and accepting
donations in order to aid the family with medical and family costs
during and after Arthur’s chemotherapy treatments and for as long as
he is medically fragile and requires such care.
Thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and financial contributions,
The Blankenship Family
