Avery the Brave update June 2013

Many of you in the Surfyverse have graciously donated to the cause of 2 year old Avery Hanel, the granddaughter of our favorite local guru shaper Gary Hanel. Avery has been diagnosed with  MDS (myelodystlastic syndrome)

GH sez,

Avery the brave update. Avery has been through 9 days of chemo and is on day 3 after the transplant. As you can see she is kicking butt. She is in isolation and it will be about a month before we know if the cell are growing properly. She continues to amaze everyone, including the doctors, with how well she is dealing with this. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Avery Hanel Donation Site now online

Hello friends of Surfy Surfy,

 You all know our longtime surfboard shaper Gary Hanel. GH’s 2 year old granddaughter Avery has been going through chemotherapy for a rare disease. Avery is going to begin receiving stem cell therapy. Obviously Aveery’s parents Peter and Alex cannot work regular jobs during this time, so a donation site has been set up for them.

  On March 28th 2012 Avery was taken to children’s hospital for what everyone thought was a flu. Our lives were turned upside down in the blink of an eye. What followed was a litany of tests, procedures, extended hospital stays, and treatments to sustain our beautiful 2 year old Avery while doctors searched for a diagnosis. 120 blood and platelet transfusions, 6 bone marrow biopsies and 7 months of chemotherapy later we have a diagnosis- MDS (myelodystlastic syndrome). Our next step is a stem cell transplant (cord blood). To make this miracle work this month we will be admitted to the children’s hospital, in the pediatric oncology ward for a minimum of 2 to 5 months of hospitalized ISOLATION. Starting with an intense regime of chemotherapy, to kill her immune system so she can receive the stem cell transplant. We are blessed that we have 3 possible matches. 

 It’s hard to talk about money when there are many more important things on our hearts but it too is a reality. Because of Avery’s extended hospitalizations and compounding medical bills we need help. We will be living in the Ronald McDonald house while we stay by our angels side during her brave fight. We are asking for donations to help offset all the costs. While all the money is going out nothing is coming in. We humbly ask for any help you can give, knowing these times are difficult for everyone. If you cannot give financially we ask that you hold our family up in prayer, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. These donations will allow us to be by our baby girls side while she fights the fight of her life. The Hanels
