The Chacana family has been going through a very trying time. Our dear friend, Haydn Chacana, was diagnosed with aggressive Systemic Lupus less than a year ago. Haydn's current treatment is not working the way doctors expected. Instead, he faces an intense IV chemotherapy approach that comes with many risks and side effects – including Leukemia or other cancer related complications. Haydn and Michelle’s eight year-old daughter, Ariana, also had a difficult past year. She was diagnosed last summer with a rare auto-immune disease, Juvenile Dermatomyositis. Ariana’s disease will hopefully go into remission, but there is no cure. Sadly, her medication has been taking a toll on her young body. Haydn and Michelle have researched a number of alternative treatment facilities for patients with similar auto-immune diseases. While many of these have shown great success, none of the costs are covered by insurance. As Haydn and Michelle’s friends, family, neighbors, NYPD co-workers and old school buddies -- as well as other kind hearts -- let’s rally together and help raise money to help the family get the best possible care that they absolutely deserve -- for Haydn and Ariana.
