Jeffrey Driscoll of Ravena, NY Underwent surgery on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 to replace the bone at his elbow with Titanium and it had to be attached to the arm bone with a rod. Mom reports that Jeffrey was in the hospital for 2 days and is recovering quicker than the first surgery that he had on his arm. Reason being- Jeffrey was receiving Chemo treatments back then, not now. We are pleased to report that there is NO sign of Cancer at this writing. Get well soon Jeffrey! -Your Friends at ACCFCB.
Jeffrey, age 13 was diagnosed in September of 2008 with Ewing Sarcoma- a rare form of bone cancer. In early 2009 Jeffrey underwent surgery to remove some of his right arm bone, from his shoulder to his elbow which was replaced with cadaver bone.
On December 6, 2009, the cadaver bone in Jeffrey's right arm sadly broke while he was throwing a football. This is a very unfortunate incident for Jeffrey who had to undergo this major surgery again.

On December 6, 2009 the cadaver bone in Jeffrey's right arm sadly broke while he was throwing a football. This is an unfortunate incident for Jeffrey who will have to undergo another major surgery after the New Year. Mom tells us that Jeffrey's surgeon is considering different options to make his right arm stronger (including Titanium and new Cadaver bone).
ACCFCB has extended it's resources to assist Jeffrey and his mom Tina through this latest setback. Mom also told us that Jeffrey is Cancer Free- Very positive news there!

Tina Driscoll, Jeffrey's mom told ACCFCB with great excitement that Jeffrey has completed his Chemotherapy treatments as of July 26, 2009 and seems to be feeling well! Jeffrey will have follow up testing in 3 month's to check the status of his bone cancer via a PET scan.
For now, Mom & Jeffrey are excited about their ACCFCB sponsored trip to Fenway Park (Tuesday- July 28, 2009) to see Jeffrey's favorite team play ball- the Boston Red Sox! Through the extraordinary efforts of ACCFCB's own Tammy Criscone, Jeffrey will be on the field during batting practice wearing his Red Sox Jersey carrying a permanent marker for players signatures, all following a tour of Fenway Park!
We Congratulate Jeffrey on his milestone and we wish him well. Mom shares these photos of their Red Sox trip and said that they had a great time:
