There are a few inaccuracies…
First, Nora is 8.
Bone Marrow Transplants are not “surgery” she goes through a week of chemo and a day of radiation and then gets a
transfusion of bone marrow, not blood, which goes directly into her heart it takes an hour or so. The “Stem Cell Push/Boost” is a week of chemo then a syringe of Stem Cells are pushed into her heart it takes 5 minutes. Stem Cells went hrough her mediport, The Marrow went through a catheter in her chest.
The Nora Fund is a Charity to help with Nora’s expenses. It is not tax exempt. It raised $45,000 in 3 three years with $28,000 of the money earned, going toward bone marrow swabs. The rest is being used for gas, tolls, parking in Manhattan, and organic groceries. When she is well the remainder will go towards the “Frances Pope Memorial Foundation” who helped Nora and her family through-out her whole ordeal. They are angels! If you are looking for a truly wonderful charity to give to that IS tax-exempt. They are the best.
Nora is at the Ronald McDonald House in NYC not New Hyde Park. She goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering not LIJ Cohen.
