"Gabe's Got This" Fundraiser

Gabe is a happy 10 year old boy who is always smiling and full of character. In late June, he started to complain of pain in his arm. After a visit to the doctor’s office, it was determined he had Osteosarcoma, a rare form of cancer averaging less than 400 cases a year. Gabe’s treatment will begin straight away. For the next year he will endure both chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Treatment will include monthly stays at the hospital as he will also need multiple surgeries to remove and repair the damaged bone.

The “Gabe’s Got This” Fund has been formed to raise vital funds for the extensive medical treatment associated with fighting this rare bone cancer. All donations will be used to directly pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance. Your support is deeply appreciated. 

So let’s come together as a community to support Gabe and his family on August 19th from 2pm-8pm at the Portuguese American Citizens Club!

35 Power St., Portsmouth, RI
