Adam D'Alberti, 4 years old lost his battle to leukemia in April 2018.
Adam was diagnosed with a rare type of leukemia (JMML) almost one year ago. JMML stands for Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia. It is a very rare type of slowly developing blood disorder that occurs in young children. It affects children mostly aged 4 and younger.
Through his fight with JMML Adam underwent multiple bone marrow transplants, various surgeries and extensive chemotherapy. He battled all of this like a true hero and fought hard to beat his cancer until the end.
Whilst in hospital both Adam's parents stayed by his side 24 hours a day 7 days a week. They had a lot of support from the Royal Children's Hospital and various charity organisations in particular My Room in providing financial support.
My Room is a volunteer organisation dedicated to raising funds to achieve a 100 percent cure rate for childhood cancers. My Room raises funds for medical equipment, research grants and supports family care.
My Room understand the enormous financial and emotional pressure a cancer diagnosis of a child can have on families. Thus they provide funding to families with essential needs such as home medical equipment and comfort aids, accommodation and transport for hospital visits, home improvements for wheelchair accessibility, funeral expenses and many others.
This page is created to raise funds to further support My Room and its cause. It is also to continue to fight on behalf of Adam against childhood cancer.
