'We never personally met Leo, but his story touched our lives. He was diagnosed at 3 with a rare cancer (very similar to Ryans, but not the exact same kind). However, nonetheless as deadly, PNET. Leo lived in Spain with his mother, father and sister. They traveled to the states to seek proton radiation therapy, at a huge cost to the family, as a last ditch effort, to no avail. Leo passed several days before his fifth birthday, after surgery, chemo, radiation, and all the horrors of being in patient, outpatient, and on hospice. A cancer diagnosis is like a nuclear bomb to a family, as it is to Leo’s family. However, nothing compares to standing at the graveside and saying goodbye. We sent Leo and his sister each 2 costumes to help them smile.
