Schedule of Events:
Sweet little Ellie Makarevitz and her family need our help, but the benefit must be modified due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Ellie was born with a tumor on her tailbone – a “sacrococcygeal teratoma.” The doctors told her mom Missy and dad Greg they’re generally benign. They were never told that it should be removed. No follow-up surgery was scheduled. So Missy and Greg didn’t think too much about it, or understand the danger it posed. You see, these tumors can turn malignant at any time. Babies born with them usually have their coccyx (tailbone) removed with the tumor to prevent reoccurrence. Now, 2-year-old Ellie and her family are facing a cancer diagnosis. Her tumor became malignant, metastasized and grew to 5 cm. A recent CT scan at CHOP showed 10 spots on her lungs. The doctors at CHOP performed a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis and “stage” of her cancer, and put a port into her small body for chemo treatments. This family could really use your support and prayers right now. On top of Ellie’s health concerns and treatment needs, she’s a brand-new big sister to preemie twins! While insurance *should* cover medical bills, there are extra costs at a time when their income is suffering. Missy is on bedrest and Greg has been calling out from work – a lot. If you’d like to help this family out at this stressful time, it would truly be appreciated.
As always, we are extremely honored to have another great lineup of musicians that will be donating their time, talents, heart, and soul on the RCB stages.
