Taten was just diagnosed with cancer.
His fight began less than two weeks ago when doctors found a tumor in his leg. Today he is in surgery to have his port put in place, and will have his first round of chemo. Taten and his family have to travel to a hospital almost 8 hours away every three weeks for the next nine months to receive treatment.
I cannot even begin to imagine the nightmare his mother is going through, but I knew I had to help in whatever way I could.
This weekend, I'm having a sale at my TeachersPayTeachers store and I'm donating every single penny to the family. All day Saturday and Sunday (April 20th - 21st), all my teaching resources will be on sale. I hope you will be able to find something to help you in your classroom, and help this family at the same time. Please click on the link above, or in my left sidebar to visit my store. And if you can, please share this post.
A few days ago, his mother wrote about her love for her son and promised him that she would hold his hand every step of the way. Well, hold on tight Marnie, but know that we're all behind you, holding your other hand.
