Gentle and Restorative with Shelbi for the Anton Family

Sam Anton is an adorable 3-year old Crofton boy diagnosed with Stage 3 Wilms Tumor—a rare form of kidney cancer. In October, he had surgery to remove the tumor and one of his kidneys, and is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments. With this treatment protocol, his prognosis is good. However, the costs related to Sam's treatment and well-being, even with insurance, will be substantial. Donations will be used by the Anton family to help defray costs of Sam's care.
