Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy and Wellness Day Spa is looking forward to helping raise funds for Avery, a 4 year old who has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. She has been an incredible fighter through multiple chemotherapy treatments, surgeries and hospital stays. Avery recently received stem cell transplant treatment at the Children Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). She developed a complication from this procedure called veno-occlusive disease (VOD). VOD is when small veins in the liver become obstructed causing clots. It was life threatening. Avery endured a lengthy 2 month stay at CHOP but battled her way back. She is currently receiving Proton Radiation treatments at CHOP which will be followed by Immunotherapy.

Marla Kaplan-Pelle, Director states, "Avery is an amazing little girl who battles a deadly disease, with a smile and laughter, at least most of the time! She was diagnosed in August 2013 and her and her family have faced multiple challenges since. And, they still have along way to go. She is in the midst of receiving Proton Radiation and then she should also be a candidate for Immunotherapy, which is expected to be a difficult time."

Two women, Donna Fazio and Ann Marie Thompson from Lindenhurst both have multiple ties to Avery and her family. Together, they have put together a fundraiser.

The All Star Comedy Night will take place on August 7th at Governor's Comedy Club. Hands On will participate in the fundraiser and tickets are also available through Hands On.
