Meet Alonzo

Max Cure KidsAlonzo is 8 years old, diagnosed with Leukemia and also has ADHD & Pervasive Developmental Delays (on the autistic spectrum).  Mother is a widow, father died in an accident almost two years ago, they were married for a long time and have older children. Mother is on a very low fixed income. Mother does not have a car and lives about 2 hours from the hospital.  Transportation to treatment has been a struggle.  Prior to the father’s death, she had been attending the local community college and obtained her AA degree.  However, due to the patient’s diagnosis, mother cannot look for a job as she needs to take care of her child.  It is obviously difficult for any child to go through cancer treatment, but definitely a lot more challenging for a child like this patient with pre-existing mental health and behavioral issues.
