Hello everyone,

My name is Rico Merced and on august 13, 2014 a very special and very close person of my family was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma .He is only 14 years old and a very gifted young man. Hodgkins Lymphoma is a type of lymphoma , a cancer that start in white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are apart of your immune system, there are two types ...Hodgkins and non-hodgkins. He has Hodgkins At just 14 years old, it was a big blow to our family. After a recent surgery to remove a mass of hard tissue, on tuesday September 2, 2014 he started a series of chemotherapy at rileys children hospital in Indinapolis, Indiana. it will last around 4 or 5 months and will be agressive on him. With all this going on our main concern is seeing him through something life changing so that he may grow up and live a beautiful life. He is a straight A student and a very gifted volcalist, his heart and spirit are so grand its inspiring. Unfortunately with this unexpected disease comes unexpected expenses and bills. I am reaching out on behalf of my family. This fight is strong and we need support. If you can not donate financially please donate ur heart and prayers to keep him uplifted and strong in his fight to a healthier life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and so does our family.
