Taking Donations for a coworkers son with cancer.

Matt is the son of a coworker of mine.  He has neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer.  He is 16 years old.  He recently underwent a stemcell transplant.  May 21 there will be a 5k race to raise funds for his medical treatment.  I will not be running in the 5k but I will be raising funds.  If anyone is interested in donating please contact me via email  Here is a little bit about neuroblastoma from Matt's facebook page.  Neuroblastoma is a cancerous tumor that begins in the nerve tissue of infants and young children. Neuroblastoma is rare in children older than 10 years of age, however it does occasionally occur in older children and adults. The tumor usually begins in the tissues of the adrenal gland found in the abdomen, but may also begin in the nerve tissue of the neck, chest or pelvis. The adrenal glands are positioned on top of the kidneys, these glands secrete hormones and other important substances that are required for normal functions in the body. In the US approximately 650 children a year are diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
