Let’s rally around Akiva! GoFundMe established to help 2 year old fight cancer


Benefit planned for October 22 in Wellsville

Hello world, my name is Jordan Muska.

I am trying to raise funds for my brother Thomas and his wife Emily for cancer treatments and related expenses for their 2 year old son Akiva.

Akiva has been diagnosed with Rhabdomyosacroma, and is currently receiving treatment up in Rochester, New York at strong memorial hospital. As anyone can imagine this diagnosis has been their absolute worst nightmare as parent!!

Many know my brother as the local head basketball coach for our varsity basketball team, putting in countless hours with the local youth. Emily is a recruiter for our local hospital, helping to bring in new doctors and services to our hospital to expand the level of care available to everyone around. They are a family of four with their son Akiva, and their newest addition Luka. Their son Akiva is one of the most vibrant, loving little boys you ever could meet!! His endless amounts of energy and the never ending smile on his face bring joy to all those that meet him. They’ll be making weekly trips to Rochester for treatment, with that and just the cost of the chemo and other testing it has all ready become quite the financial burden on them. Any donation is welcome and will be greatly appreciated. These are some of the best people you could meet, and would certainly help to any cause such as this themselves.

If you don’t want to donate through this platform, we will having a benefit October 22 at the field house with Zoar, Matt Burns and more playing music. More information will be available on that in the very near future. Thank you to all that donate, share, pray, send good vibes!!!

If you’d like to donate directly to then Emily’s venmo is @Emily-Whitehouse-3!!
