THE support and well wishes of the Sunraysia community are helping keep spirits high for Mildura mother and former school teacher Gina DeAngelis Argiro while she receives treatment in the United States.

Gina’s husband Peter Argiro said while it’s been a “tough road” for the family so far, they are grateful to be in Boston so Gina can undergo potentially life saving CAR-T therapy treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

“It’s all going okay here, Gina has had some big days of testing and T cell collection on Friday, but it all went well,” Mr Argiro said.
