Jeff's targeted therapy has kept his advanced lung cancer at bay.
Six-year-old Riley Fessenden, of Beverly, was diagnosed in May with esthesioneuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer. She underwent four rounds of chemotherapy, and is now undergoing radiation treatments.
When Riley was diagnosed, both her mom, Kamie Huston, and her Titans cheerleading coach, Kelli Roesener assumed Riley an honorary member of the team, rather than participating in the strenuous sport. Riley proved everyone wrong and is "the hardest working girl on the team," according to Roesener.
Riley’s sister Meghan, 7, is also on the team. When Riley is too sick to attend practice, Meghan keeps her up-to-speed.
To support Riley and all others affected by cancer, the Titans are participating in Cheer for Dana-Farber, a new fundraiser that encourages cheerleaders across New England from all ages and skill levels to join the fight against cancer. To raise money, the Titans are holding a canister collection, family dance, and a bake sale.
Teams that raise more than $1,000 by Thanksgiving will be entered into an opportunity drawing. One team will be chosen to perform at a pre-game show for the December 29 New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills game.
