Families

 

The Eslingers

Kevin, Deb, Austin and Megan Eslinger are from a small town outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. They enjoy the outdoors, camping, visiting amusement parks, playing games and watching movies together.

Megan is our THON Child! She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in January, 2009 at the age of 18 months. She could not walk during the first three months of treatment due to pain, and she courageously received many different types of chemotherapy to fight her battle. Megan finished her treatment in April, 2011 at the age of three and today is happy and healthy! We could not be more proud of this amazing little girl!

Megan is now 10 years old and loves painting, drawing, singing to the ‘Frozen’ soundtrack and playing with her big brother, Austin. Austin is Megan’s 13-year-old brother who is full of energy! He’s got great dance moves and always starts a game of tag during visits. We are so happy and honored to have Megan and all of the Eslingers be part of our FOTO family!

The Knapers

Mike, Tiffany, Logan, and Lucas live in York, Pennsylvania, and when they get time together they enjoy playing Wii or Xbox, watching movies, going to the park, and visiting friends and family. They go to the beach every summer and love fishing, playing in the ocean, and building sand castles.

Logan is our THON child! He is nine years old and was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in September, 2011. Today, Logan has finished all of his treatments and, most recently, has wrapped up his last round of antibiotics! He is only getting better!

Logan loves to read, watch movies, play soccer, and swim. He is obsessed with the movie ‘Cars,’ loves Ninja Turtles and the color blue. His younger brother Lucas is six years old. He loves Mickey Mouse, Jeeps and bubbles.

FOTO is very proud to have such a strong little boy and his amazing family be part of our family!

The Knaper Family

The Tramels

Katy, James, Will, Phineas (Finny), and Mathias (Matty) Tramel live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The three boys love playing superheroes and reading their favorite books. Will is 6 years old, Finny is 4, and Matty recently turned 3 in December.

Matty is our THON child. Matty was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 1, and he will remains on treatment for the next couple of years. Matty has battled numerous infections and has spent months in the hospital requiring specialized treatment, but he remains one of the happiest and most playful kids we have ever met.

We can not wait to continue getting to know this amazing family, and together we will work together to ensure Matty continues getting the treatment he needs to beat cancer, once and for all!
