For Layla Benifit Auction

Layla Grace is 3 months shy of her 2nd birthday. In May of this year, we were told what every parent never wants to hear - our precious daughter had cancer. Layla Grace has stage IV, high risk Neuroblastoma. A large tumor started in her left kidney, spread around to her abdomen and vertebrae, around her aorta and under her diaphragm. She had a tumor behind her right eye and one behind each ear. Her bone marrow was full of cancer, and most of her bones have large cancer lesions on them as well. In the past 3 months, Layla Grace has had 6 surgeries, been intubated in the PICU for 8 days and gone through 3 rounds of chemo. Her bone marrow is now clear and the three tumors in her head are gone. However, she is far from being cured. Her treatment will consist of 2 more rounds of high toxicity chemo, 21 days of high dose radiation, a stem cell transplant, then 6 more months of low dose chemo and 6 experimental immunotherapy injections. These 6 injections are crucial to her treatment, and raise her survival rate from 30% to 40%. Because they are in the experimental phase, they are not covered by insurance, and are $18,000 each!We have faith that God will heal our precious angel, and provide us with the appropriate doctors and medication necessary to do so. EBay’s finest designers and buyers have come together in an effort to raise money for Layla's medical expenses. 100% of the proceeds from these auctions will go directly into the Layla Grace Marsh Donation Account.
