Latko Family GoFundMe
Recently a local family, the Latko's, received news that no parent ever wants to hear, that their 3 year old daughter, Stella, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Stella also has Down Syndrome, which increases the chances of getting leukemia and developing complications from treatment. She is currently being treated at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and is expected to remain for 4-6 weeks of cancer treatment. As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for these parents and their 3 other children as they juggle schedules so that one of them is always at the hospital with Stella and also home at night with the other kids. A GoFundMe campaign has been started for the family by a relative to help defray the burden of lost wages, medical bills and other ancillary expenses.
