Last fall, , gliomatosis cerebri, and since then he has been fighting the biggest fight of his life. Sirous was finally was able to return home to Dublin last weekend after having been in the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital since the beginning of December.
Sirous has a Facebook page to help him stay in touch with friends and family, and he wrote on his wall on Feb. 23:
"I made it home... away since Dec. 10 last year! It feel great, I want to do things now at home with my sister & brothers & in near future sometime with my friends. I think in a week w/ god blessing I could feel strong enough! Prayers has been answered to make it home for now."
The community has been rallying to support the family with a meal train and fundraisers. The most recent fundraiser was held at Rockin' Jump in Dublin on Feb 21. Dublin residents continue to turn out in droves to support the Sadaghiani family, who are trying to save Sirous' life.
According to Sue Wilson of Rockin' Jump, about 200 people attended and Rockin' Jump donated 30 percent of the jump sales that day to the family while Cafe Main donated 10 percent of their proceeds from the afternoon to the Sadaghiani family.
Wilson said a Mary Kay representative was there that day and she donated 75 percent of her sales.
Janine Thalblum, who organized the event wrote, via email:
"Raffle prizes were collected and donated from businesses and families in the area and the printing services for the flyers for the event were donated by Acclaim Printing in Dublin. I am just so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support this community has shown in this time of tough news and others in recent months in our city. I am incredibly proud to live here and feel blessed to call this city home."
Jumpers and supporters of Sirous signed a giant banner to be displayed for his homecoming.
