Saint Mary’s Angels is proud to partner with Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation to make a significant impact on families like Kohen’s. Read his story:
Kohen is an incredible kid with a remarkable cancer story. He was diagnosed at the age of 5 and underwent a “remarkable” and “radical” rotationplasty surgery to save his life. The surgery removed the majority of his upper leg from his hip to his knee, which housed the tumor and cancer. His knee was then transformed into a hip joint and his ankle now functions as a knee joint that can hold a prosthetic around his foot. NNCCF was able to help Kohen and his family through every step of his journey. “Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation has helped us in every way: Financially being there to support us, stopping in the hospital to visit, they have really been incredible,” said Courtney, Kohen’s mom.
