Ben Cuda, fighting to wipe cancer clean!!

In March of 2015 my dad, Ben Cuda was diagnosed with Stage 4, Follicular Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at the age of 58.  He immediately began a six-treatment chemotherapy regimen and was in remission by October of 2015.  Less than a year later the cancer had recurred and this time was more aggressive.  He began a different chemotherapy cocktail which he is still undergoing; with his initial short remission time and other factors, the oncologist has recommended an allogenic stem cell transplant.  This is a very aggressive treatment option, but at dad’s age of 60 years old, he is ready for the fight and sees it as the only option.  Should he successfully find a good donor match, have no issues during or after the transplant this treatment can provide a CURE!! 

Our team, fighting for my dad (CUREageous Cuda) is trying to raise $100,000.00 to support cancer research funded by The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and all money will be donated on behalf of Ben Cuda at the Light the Night Walk, September 30th, we ask that you do more than simply donate, but you join us that night for the event!!

I want to personally thank LLS for being a crutch during our family's fight.  They have very knowledgeable people and resources that are able to assist us in any questions and better prepare us for what to expect during the upcoming battle. 

*Thank you to Allied Refreshment, Carlitos Mexican Food, Core Physical Therapy, PPG Consulting, and Specialized Home Care to help reach our goal.
