Eko's Cancer Funds

$8,025 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 59 people in 1 month
A few short months ago, our son Eko, (pronounced echo) was just a normal happy healthy kid with no former medical issues.  Gradually over the course of a couple weeks, Eko seemed abnormally tired and refused to walk, play, or do anything physical anymore.  We took him to multiple doctors until they finally rushed us to the hospital where we were given the gut wrenching news that he has Leukemia.  The news that our son has cancer is still something we're struggling to accept today, but it's also impossible to forget.

Here's a local news report, where we were featured for Eko's three year old birthday party as local police officers came to show their support.

Treatment for Pediatric Leukemia in boys is a 3.5 year plan that's based on years of research from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis Tennessee.  There are many phases of treatment, including steroids, many different chemotherapies, over a dozen lumbar punctures and lots of other medications that no child should be forced to take.  Ultimately, Eko will have spent over half his life battling cancer and undergoing weekly regimens and/or procedures at Dell Children's Medical Center.

The money we're asking for would go towards medical expenses, copays, deductibles, medicine, toll road bills for our hospital trips, and keeping our house as clean as possible while Eko's blood counts are constantly in flux.

Other things that go a long way are:

Gift cards to restaurants that are nearby either the hospital or our home (Starbucks, Chic Fil A, P.Terry's,  Chipotle, Torchy's Tacos, etc)

Gift cards to Amazon, HEB, or food delivery services such as UberEats.

Thanks for any support you can offer.

Sincerely,
Steve and Naomi Young
