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)

Miracle Blues From Outer Space” TODAY’S soundtrack for Nicky Sorbelli’s EPIC ASS KICKING of his blood cancer! The Sorbelli family got a holiday miracle yesterday when after Nicky’s chemotherapy we got to leave the Miami Children’s Hospital & come back home because his blood counts were holding up so well & fighting so strong!!! Dec 14th is his next chemo infusion so a little break is just amazing for him and us right now!
It’s a feeling I can’t explain – I’m so happy! There aren’t any words for the feelings that accompany getting out of the hospital and chemotherapy UNEXPECTEDLY the day before Thanksgivibg! It’s a true holiday miracle and we are very very thankful – it’s perfect!
As we drive down US1 heading back home – I am getting calls and texts and emails from my music shop in Key West that there was a very special person hanging out and celebrating the holiday on Duval street Key West – a one and only ROBERT PLANT. Yep that is special and he is probably cool to party with and hang with – but all I can say – and I say with much humility and respect – “MOVE OVER ROBERT PLANT NICKY SORBELLI is coming back to town!!” Robert you & Santa Clause may have to wait in line for the attention this year if Nicky is back in town because he’s the coolest of the cool!
And Robert his hair was as EPIC as yours back in the day. He’s Lion at heart – a Golden Child God.
