Little Sammy Gillott, the son of Brian and Lisa Gillott of Ridge, New York, is a 2 year old with brain cancer (medulloblastoma). Sammy was diagnosed in May and had the tumor removed.
But since this very aggressive cancer, further treatment was needed. The family has relocated to St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, to seek the best treatment. They have been there for 2½ months and are expected to be there for at least 4 more months. This has put a tremendous financial burden on the family.
Three years ago Brian and Lisa lost their first son, 16 month old Benjamin, to the same type of cancer that Sammy now has.
I would like to thank the Guardian Brain Foundation for all their help with purchasing the HEPA Filters that were needed for us to come home. It is so nice to be back in New York and have the support of organizations like yours.
