It is with a heavy heart that I inform you all that my first cousin, Dovi Muchnick, was suddenly diagnosed with a rare form of cancer,
stage 4. With limited insurance we are reaching out for any help for his medical
Dovi started out with back pain. A healthy boy taken to the Dr. to see what was
bothering him. He was given the usual Advil, muscle relaxant and exercises. The pain severely increased and after an MRI a large tumor was found compressing his spinal cord. It had also grown around and crushed his vertebrae. He had spinal, neuro surgery and rods placed on his spine.
More testing brought more devastating shock, he was diagnosed with a rare form of adult neuroblastoma. Cancer was found on his spine, hip, shoulder and unfortunately many other locations, stage 4.
As you hopefully will never imagine, life will never be the same for the family. Chemo, radiation, blood transfusions etc., have all started to try and stop his cancer. Many more testing, surgeries and treatments will follow in the coming months. His insurance, like many, is limited in the coverage that it provides however their expenses are outrageous. He will unfortunately have special needs and many obstacles to come.
We cannot help Dovi with his cancer but we must try to make the other problems of their lives, a little less of a burden. Anything that we can try to help him with, we want to do. So we are starting this fund
for him and we are honestly asking for your help.
