Throughout Apollo’s existence, we have been paired with three families in conjunction with THON and Four Diamonds. Four Diamonds provides outstanding support to our families, including covering all financial aspects of treatment, as well as music therapy, wonderful social workers, a brilliant nutritionist, engaging child life specialists, and more.
One of our three “adopted” families is the Olivia Lynch Family. In the spring of 2014, Olivia (Age 5) was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor. Olivia passed away in December 2015 but her lively spirit is still with us. She loved singing, dancing, and spending time with her siblings, Grace and Liam.
Apollo also continues to support the Noah Mummert Family. Noah, now a third-grader, has been cancer-free for over four years after beating his Wilms Tumor! He loves getting to see his Apollo friends, playing video games, and being an active kid. His older brother Ben recently graduated from high school.
Our third family is the Devanhi Sanchez Family. Devanhi just reached the two-year post- chemotherapy milestone after finishing treatment for her Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She is currently in preschool and loves Disney princesses!
