Just wanted to send out an email with an update on Vivek's condition. He is very ill with high fevers and staying at the hospital in the city. Please think good thoughts and say your prayers for Vivek and his family. They are amazing and keeping it together best they can during this incredibly difficult time. I will post more as I know more.

Thank you,
Jen

Thank you so much to all of you who donated again!! Just to let you know. The money raised in the last couple of days has covered 5 months of their out of pocket cost for Vivek's medications!

For anyone who wanted to donate, but didn't have the chance... this site is here when you are ready ;)

Thank you again and I will post an updated picture early next week. I am looking forward to seeing them at the Ronald McDonald house this weekend!

xoxo,
Jen

Little Vivek was recently hospitalized in New York City with HLH,(hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis) a very serious and life threatening blood disorder. He is just a year old.

Vivek is a super happy kid with bright beautiful eyes and always a smile on his face. He received a bone marrow transplant and is recovering. His state of health is still fragile and he is currently on isolation precautions at the Ronald McDonald house close to the hospital with his Mom. They are not out of the woods and have a long road to go.

Your thoughts and prayers are needed.


His Mom has been with Vivek around the clock, occasionally taking turns to be at home with their other child (an awesomely vivacious 5 year old boy). His Mom and Dad have also gone through this before as their first Child also suffered from HLH and passed away a few years ago. That Vivek is also suffering from this disease is tragic but many advances in medicine and the fact that it was caught quickly leads us to have great hope.

We decided to try to set up this page to help them with donations so that they could have less to worry about during this awfully challenging time. Being away from home, their expenses are adding up rapidly, including Ronald McDonald house costs, parking, medication, food cost, anticipated medical expenses, and the need for consistent childcare with their 5 year old. Once he is discharged from the Ronald McDonald house, they will need to travel in and out of the City several times a week for appointments and treatments, which will take an even greater toll on the families finances.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers and support in this trying time for this family and their loved ones.
