PRLog - Oct. 23, 2008 - LOS ANGELES -- LOS ANGELES—The Brown family received a call no one wants. The bruises and bumps on Caiti’s leg were more than just the typical injuries 14 year olds pick up. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, the most common type of malignant bone cancer.

Fighting with everything she had, Caiti endured the painful process of having some of her leg bones replaced with metal rods. Just when things started to go smoothly, the summer of 2006 brought a relapse of cancer in her lungs. Caiti just did not respond to conventional treatments. Her father, Brian Brown, said, “After this point, the doctors said to give her a quality life. There was nothing more they thought they could do.”
Instead of quitting, 17-year-old Caiti and her family have decided to take a leap of faith. Caiti will now continue her treatment at Envita Medical Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. Here they use natural medicines in conjunction with chemotherapy. Unfortunately, the Browns will have to pay out-of-pocket. Caiti’s first round of treatment in February proved successful and the tumor started shrinking.
ProjectAngelMom.com hopes to help reach the Brown’s goal of $100,000 to cover the bills incurred at the Envita Medical Center. To contribute to Caiti’s fund, please visit http://www.ProjectAngleMom.com.
