THANK YOU for being ready to support the Aprans family during a challenging time.  Starling's diagnosis with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis came, of course, as a total shock.  Fortunately, Starling's parents and pediatrician responded quickly and linked Starling with some of the best care in the world for this rare condition at Boston Children's Hospital. Starling began treatment in Boston a few weeks ago, and immediately responded well.  Though he needed to remain at the hospital  for a few days, they are all now back in their loving Lincolnville home. The treatment will continue for a while yet: in the short term, Starling is going to Portland every Monday for chemotherapy treatments. Within the coming months, the frequency of treatments may lessen, but they will continue for the rest of the year. 

Your donation here will be put immediately towards one of several ways we can give the Apranses a little extra support right now.  We will be purchasing gas cards and gift cards to a couple local restaurants for when they need an easy meal.  Donations may also go towards out-of-pocket medical expenses, extra childcare for Cutter or household support for the whole family.

With immense gratitude: Thank you!!
