VivianThis year we are raising money for young Vivian Stoch, an 8-year-old girl from Webster, NY who is battling medulloblastoma, a pediatric form of brain cancer. Vivian was diagnosed on April 23rd 2018 after having double vision. Vivian has undergone surgery, 31 radiation treatments, and is currently undergoing chemotherapy at the Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong. Vivian is working with occupational therapy and physical therapy as well as tutoring at home. Due to the location of the tumor, Vivian still struggles with her balance, which prevents her from participating in many of the activities she enjoys most. Vivian loves cheerleading and gymnastics and wants to be a dolphin trainer when she grows up. Despite the major obstacles Vivian has overcome, she still smiles and maintains a happy disposition.

The Stoch family has experienced a loss of wages and continues to receive medical bills for treatment. Please join us in supporting Vivian, her parents Mark and Kelly, and her little sister Laila in this long and difficult journey against this horrible disease.
