Three year old Andre has been an active and healthy little boy up until one week ago when he came down with the influenza virus. Suddenly, in less than 24 hours he was admitted to Valley Childrens Hospital, ICU, and he has been fighting for his life ever since. He has been diagnosed with ANEC. This is a very rare condition that has only affected 155 children in the world.
His mother Kamareia has obviously not left her babys side, and with this said, she is going to be unable to return to her fulltime job with the state of CA anytime soon.
There is nothing any of us can do other than send our love, prayers and healing thoughts, but we can help ease the stress of the bills that still need to be paid at home.
Please if you are able to donate, do so. Any amount donated will be hugely appreciated. If even half of my friends is able to donate even 1$, it will make a difference. If you are in the Fresno area and are unable to donate money but would still like to help in some way, I am sure magazines, books, cards, food, games, etc. would also be much appreciated. I can arrange for pick-up and delivery (please send me pm on fb). You thoughts and prayers are especially important for the family at this time.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
Pedrito is 1 year old and on February 5, 2017 he entered the hospital with a virus. The virus affected his heart causing dilated cardiomyopathy (inflammation of the heart). Currently his heart is very weak and does not have enough strength to pump blood to his whole body and other organs are starting to deteriorate. Pedrito is plugged to a machine with artificial breathing waiting to be transfered.
Pedrito need to be transferred as soon as possible to Texas Children's Hospital for a heart transplant and treatment which has a cost of $2 Million.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!! $1.00 counts!
We will be eternally grateful!
As you may know, a week ago my parents went to Boston to evaluate their options for my dad. Definitive diagnosis is AL amyloidosis and multiple myeloma (cancer). He is scheduled to have a stem cell transplant later this month. The process itself it quite intense: a week of growth factor injections and stem cell collection via chest catheter, daily visits to check on vitals (each visit will be 8-9 hours per day), high-dose chemotherapy, and stem cell reinfusion. The entire process lasts about 8 weeks, and he will be "quarantined" from interacting with anyone except his doctors and one caregiver, which of course will be my mother, Elfreda Massie. He'll be in Boston through December and after he returns home, recovery can take several years.
How can you help? Prayer, prayer, and more prayer. In addition to your prayers for healing, wisdom, financial provision, peace, strength (and on and on…), you can also donate funding to help offsite the cost of their lodging, transportation, and the cost of treatment.
