10 yr old son, cancer battler & inspirational hero Nicky Sorbelli & his family father Wayne, mother Jamie & sister Leela go on local news TV in Miami, Key West, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, NEPA (ABC TV affiliates) asking the nation for FREE bone marrow donor testing at www.BeTheMatch.org
As most of you reading this know, my son Nicky Sorbelli has been fighting T-Cell Lympblastic Lymphoma since his diagnosis in May 2015 – his cancer became chemo resistant in late November so they had to switch his treatment to a harder chemo and a bone marrow transplant.
We need to start looking for a bone marrow transplant match for Nicky now ASAP because the results can take up to two weeks to get a potential donor’s results back. You can get a free home mouth swab test kit! https://join.bethematch.org/Nicky%20Sorbelli/ **
** Free mouth swab test to register & if you are a match its just a shot & blood draw to actually donate for most transplants!
Monetary donation can be made directly to Nicky & his family at First State Bank of the Floria Keys: payable to Sorbelli. Memo Nicky Sorbelli donation fund (2487)
As most of you reading this know, my son Nicky Sorbelli has been fighting T-Cell Lympblastic Lymphoma since his diagnosis May 2015 – his cancer became chemo resistant so they had to switch to a harder chemo and a bone marrow transplant.
Nicky’s last PET scan showed live cancer activity in his chest where it was originally in the lymph nodes in front of and around his thymus.
He is getting a blood transfusion (hemoglobin) as I type this. He is going in for a biopsy to verify the exact diagnosis of what they are still calling T-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma and this would be considered a recurrence as they were pretty sure it was all gone.
The doctors here at Miami Childrens Hospital have sent all of Nicky’s info to the leading children’s hospitals in the country and four of the top lymphoma doctors in the nation for a review in front of the world’s round table of thinkers in this stuff.
So far everyone agrees to hit it back with a different chemo that is kept in reserve just in case cancer builds resist endive to the first chemo- which his obviously did. So far all say to prepare for a bone marrow transplant. So we are looking for a bone marrow match donor!
We have been praying harder that ever and are asking everyone to buckle down and pray & mediate, please go now before whatever power that you call God, and beg for some positivity & help in Nicky’s direction.
We need to start looking for a bone marrow match for Nicky’s transplant. You can get a free home test at www.BeTheMatch.org
Thanks and as always I will keep everyone posted as we go, as I can.
We are heading back to Miami today from our miracle Thanksgiving break to start the last four-six weeks of intense treatment (the hardest and scariest part) then down to once a month chemo infusions for a year and a half and chemo by pill for the next three years after this phase. It not easy but he is winning the war on his cancer and kicking cancers ASS one cell at a time!!!
We had a great Thanksgiving at home with family and friends and got some much needed rest and recouperation as we are getting ready for the hardest and most intense part of Nicky’s chemotherapy.
Please keep your fingers crossed and keep sending the prayers and well wishes PLEASE! We are living on prays by the pound right now.

We have to be tough REAL tough – ZOMBIE TUFF !!! So we practicing getting ZOMBIE on today’s catch so we are prepared to take on Nicky’s blood cancer.
We are getting ready to go in for phase 3 of 4 intense chemotherapy on Tuesday morning. We were at home in Key West for a few days of “rest/fishing 😃👍” – getting ready to head back to Miami in a few hours. It would have been great to see our friends this weekend but so sorry we couldn’t make it to Jazz Cafe Benefit for Nicky (we were under doctor’s orders to avoid anyone but immediate family & avoid all crowds (because Nicky’s immune system is very compromised at the moment as the chemotherapy does its job on the cancer) which makes fishing on a boat in the gulf of Mexico away from everything and everyone a relatively SAFE but very fun activity (except for the swimming with the SHARKS part lol just kidding)
I’m asking in advance to please keep sending prayers!! Thank you
