Carlene is moving into a new phase of treatment and has faced many challenges. Our family is very grateful for all of the support we have received. The new challenges have created a wave of new expenses. 

Please consider making a tax deductible donation or creating a fundraising team to share with your friends, neighbors or coworkers to help support the Coins for Carly campaign. Team fundraising information can be found here: Team Carlene

We have come a long way but we have a long way to go. Carlene is scheduled to start stem cell harvesting from her bone marrow starting August 17th. We are praying she will be stable enough to tolerate the collection that will happen every day for seven days. 

These stem cells will be used for her bone marrow transplant that is tentatively scheduled for September 22. The month of September is recognized as National Childhood Cancer Awareness month. 

Please consider sharing the Coins for Carly campaign in your networks to help Carlene continue the fight against stage 4 metastatic retinoblastoma. Easy access and shareable links can also be found here: Coins for Carly on LinkTree
