Update on Stella Frattarelli

Great news! After months of intensive chemotherapy designed to shrink little Stella’s tumor, it appears to have worked. Doctors found that the procedure had caused a 50% decrease in the size of the tumor, allowing them to safely remove it this past Wednesday morning. Several other spots of concern were also safely removed at the same time. Unfortunately, this is not the end of her journey. Once she recuperates, it is back to a fifth round of chemo in preparation for a bone marrow transplant. However, the removal of this tumor has significantly increased the chances for a successful bone marrow transplant, which is the most important procedure involved in her treatment. Despite such an ordeal, she remains upbeat and an inspiration to all. Mike Frattarelli and his wife Rachel thank you for all of your kind thoughts, prayers, and generosity.
