Dear Nancy and Ron,
I can’t begin to thank you enough for you generous donation to my son Jaidan, especially around this time of year! I am a single mother of 3, I just recently had a baby in October and with traveling back and forth to CHOP often I am unable to work at the moment. Just as I thought I wasn’t going to be able to give my kids a good Christmas this year this happened and I am so grateful!!
Jaidan was diagnosed with ALL (Accute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) on April 11, 2018 shortly after his 6th birthday. Still to this day he doesn’t understand why all of this is happening to him. The hospital has explained to him that his blood is “sick”. To say the least our lives have been flipped upside down, hearing my son has cancer was the most devastating news I have yet to receive. He did have surgery shortly after being diagnosed to have a port placed. He was hospitalized at CHOP for a week. We struggled with high fevers, heart issues, mood swings, and learning how to cope with all of this at home. The physical, emotional, and financial struggle of dealing with this is tremendous. Through it all Jaidan has overall been a strong little boy and responding well to treatment. We have a long road ahead of us but we pray for better days. Thank you for all you do and for all your time and dedication put into helping families during our lowest time.
Thanks to organizations like yourself it makes times like these a little more easy! I know this will bring a huge smile to his face 🙂
