Nicky Sorbelli & Family go on Miami, Key West, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, NEPA local news ABC TV affiliates asking the nation for FREE bone marrow donor testing at www.BeTheMatch.org

 
10 yr old son, cancer battler & inspirational hero Nicky Sorbelli & his family father Wayne, mother Jamie & sister Leela go on local news TV in Miami, Key West, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, NEPA (ABC TV affiliates) asking the nation for FREE bone marrow donor testing at www.BeTheMatch.org  

As most of you reading this know, my son Nicky Sorbelli has been fighting T-Cell Lympblastic Lymphoma since his diagnosis in May 2015 – his cancer became chemo resistant in late November so they had to switch his treatment to a harder chemo and a bone marrow transplant.

We need to start looking for a bone marrow transplant match for Nicky now ASAP because the results can take up to two weeks to get a potential donor’s results back. You can get a free home mouth swab test kit! https://join.bethematch.org/Nicky%20Sorbelli/   **

** Free mouth swab test to register & if you are a match its just a shot & blood draw to actually donate for most transplants! 

Monetary donation can be made directly to Nicky & his family at First State Bank of the Floria Keys: payable to Sorbelli. Memo Nicky Sorbelli donation fund (2487)

Thank you to everyone who made NEPA Helping Nicky Sorbelli such a huge success last spring. Nicky continues to receive chemotherapy and has had frequent hospitalizations in the past months, necessitating the Sorbelli family to relocate temporarily to be closer to the hospital. As the Sorbelli family’s need is ongoing, NEPA is once again coming together for a benefit to help our friends. There is a killer line up of bands, as well as food, drinks, raffles and some surprises as well!!

Aside from the donations and raffle items that all my friends are throwing in, I will be giving up many of my personal items to put into the raffle – like a bunch of music collectibles & autographs & records, as well as a few of my guitars. An all black USA Strat, a vintage cherry Dean Gran Sport, a few work horse guitars like my Reverend Charger HBFM and Nylon string guitar, one of my Luna ukuleles and more!
