We Do This For Carlo Santiago and the many families with seriously ill children!
In January 2005, at age four Carlo Santiago was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma, an aggressive solid-tumor cancer that forms in the nervous system outside the brain and left his young body riddled with tumors from his head to his knees. Though being dealt a very difficult hand, Carlo handled it like a true champ. He and his mother Toni and father Sam spent the next six years traveling back and forth from Hong Kong staying at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House so that Carlo could receive the best treatment at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. During this journey, he mastered the guitar, taught by his teacher James Valentine (guitarist from Maroon 5), the Walk For Kids, a letter to President Barack Obama. Carlo was a true inspiration to EVERYONE he encountered.
