Barry Burgoyne & Sarcoma Cancer

Barry Burgoyne & Sarcoma Cancer

Barry is a father of a beautiful set of 16 month old twins Giuliana & Luca. He is also a husband to his beautiful wife of 4 years, Michelle. On Friday April 13th Barry was diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer called Ewing Sarcoma Soft Tissue. The tumor had occupied 40% of his spinal canal & encase both his aorta and esophagus. It can only be treated with chemotherapy & radiation, as surgery is not an option. Fortunately they caught it sooner rather than later. In only a weeks time from diagnosis permanent neurological damage could have occurred.He currently is receiving treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC, which keeps him from his family who is in West Chester, PA. In the early months of treatment he was able to venture home to visit, but now since he has started radiation he wont be able to head home for 6 weeks. His total treatment is expected to last roughly 8 months and with a little over 3 months down. He is almost half way there.Our goal with FundRazr is to help raise as much funds as possible to assist with medical bills, minor travel expenses & get his wife and kids a new laptop or iPad to face time or Skype with their father.Thanks to all who took the time to read our story.
