Penelope’s story

On 1/18/14, Shannon and Ben realized their daughter, Penelope, had somehow gone blind. After many procedures and tests, Penelope was diagnosed with high risk stage IV Neuroblastoma on January 22, 2014.

Her originating tumor is in her abdomen by her spine. The cancer has spread through her bone marrow to numerous spots on her bones (doctors didn't even count these). There are two bigger tumors on her skull, one of which has caused Penelope to go blind. The doctors are also convinced that Penelope has been in pain for quite some time.

She will have to endure 5-6 rounds of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, bone marrow transplant and antibody treatment. This is looking to be at least a year to a year and a half journey. Please join us as mom, dad, grandpa & friend, Amber, keep you updated on this page!

Penelope has not been doing very well since her surgery to remove the tumor. She has been on hemodialysis due to kidney failure. Please pray for this sweet girl.

Very sad to say sweet Penelope lost her fight tonight.

RIP Penelope, so many people fell in love with you.

 This little girl has captured my heart from the moment I found her Facebook page, and I think you will love her too. She is so pretty. She has the prettiest blue eyes. I hope everyone that comes here will go like her page, donate to her fundraiser if you can, let her know she doesn't fight alone!

Paypal donations directly to her family.
