Daniela’s Cut a Thon
To support the local family of Daniela Ciriello, Serenity Salon & Day Spa will host its 6thannual Cut-A-Thon on Sunday, March 30, 2014 from 10am to 3pm.
Daniela, now 18 months old, was born with Beta Thalassemia, an inherited, chronic blood disease.Â Danielaâ€™s bone marrow doesn’t produce enough healthy red blood cells and, if left untreated, she wouldn’t be able to live.
Â The staff at Serenity Salon & Day spa is donating their time and tips and 100% of the proceeds will go towards helping to off-set some of the costs associated with Danielaâ€™s treatment.
Â The treatment for Beta Thalassemia is regular blood transfusions, and Daniela relies on the generosity of blood donors to survive. She has a blood transfusion every 3 weeks at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford. Those blood transfusions put an overwhelming amount of iron into her body, which, if left untreated, would overtake her organs and could lead to death. Daniela recently started the next chapter of her treatment called Iron Chelation. She will need to take a pill orally every day for the rest of her life. She also has to have regular ear & eye testing as well as 2 MRI’s and a biopsy of her liver every year.Â
