We’re Still At It!

Mikko at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital Transplant Center

Hey folks… it’s been a while since we’ve checked in, but rest assured we’re still at it, and in fact made a big delivery to Mikko on Monday of this week,  with a bunch of sticks that had been donated during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs via Foley’s NY Pub and Restaurant.

The sticks may have been donated a while ago, but the delivery was just in time to welcome Mikko home from a long hospital stay in which he received a stem cell transplant. The good news is that Mikko’s treatment is going according to plan, but he’s endured some really tough side effects and has had some miserable days.

Not. Fair.

Just a quick reminder that if you are interested in helping the Gegens out financially, a benefit account has been set up, which you’ll find here. Mikko’s amazing mom has had to take off a significant amount of work due to his treatment, so any bit would help.

This little guy and his family are true warriors. Please keep the sticks coming, and let the Gegens know that they aren’t in this fight alone. Your generosity with the sticks and words of encouragement continue to amaze.  Thank you!

Dangle. Snipe. Celly.
