39th Annual Benefit Oyster Roast

Two-year old Aria Noelle Deskins was born a fighter.   At 11 months she began to exhibit unexplained bruises and fevers.  Then at 17 months old she underwent blood tests that determined she had leukemia.   The team at VCU immediately did surgery to install a port, perform a lumbar puncture on her spine to start chemo, and do a bone marrow biopsy to determine the specific type of leukemia.

Donations will go to Aria’s medications, treatments, and other related expenses. Her procedures and chemo will be ongoing until August 2025, with monthly lab work and tests for 5 more years.
