KIDSgala threw Tessa Prothero a surprise birthday party in February 2016 at Farina’s Banquet Center in Berkley, Michigan. Tessa’s celebration encompassed her passion for dancing and singing with a “Rock and Roll” theme. The event included dinner, birthday cake, a piñata, photo booth dancing and karaoke with a DJ. Tessa’s friends and family enjoyed props such as guitars, microphones, sunglasses and hats to enhance their dancing experience.
Tessa was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma in November 2013. Neuroblastoma (NB) is a rare disease in which a solid tumor is formed by special nerve cells which results in the development of cancer cells. Tessa has been receiving different clinical trials since 2014. After Tessa’s disease progressed, the family opted for treatment in New York at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. They travel once or twice a month and stay either a few days or a few weeks each time. The treatments are keeping her stable with only slight progressions.
