Leukemia picked the wrong Princess

$20,270 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 190 people in 16 months
This is a story about a very special person, Emma Ann [Glenda :) ]Cleveland Godinez. Emma is 21 years young and one of the most beautiful, kind, generous and loving souls you will ever meet. Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Emma has had their life forever changed by her kind heart and beautiful smile. It is with heavy hearts that we write this…

Yesterday our sweet Emma was diagnosed with Leukemia. Over the last few days Emma has been in pain. Everything from fevers, joint pain to severe stomach pain. She went into Urgent Care who gave her a strep culture and sent her home. The next morning she woke up because of severe pain in her abdomen and went to the ER. Upon much more examination and testing she was told she had Leukemia. From the ER, she was loaded into an ambulance and transported to a Cancer Treatment Center down south to start treatment immediately. This morning Emma had her first bone marrow test to determine the type and severity of her Leukemia. Her current treatment plan will have her receiving treatment at the Cancer Treatment Center for the next 3 to 4 weeks.

The funds raised through this page will help Emma and Eddie cover many of the unfortunate and unexpected expenses they encounter.

Any support, prayers, and words of encouragement would be appreciated more than you will ever know. The power of prayer moves mountains! We will use this page to update all of you on Emma's treatment and progress.

UPDATE: Emma has had her final tests before transplant. If all of her numbers and test results look good then the transplant process will begin this week. The process includes a grueling round of chemo followed by a day of rest and then they will transplant Jim’s bone marrow. After that we wait until she engrafts. Hopefully we’ll only have to wait a few weeks before her body accepts it and starts making her own cells with his DNA. After that happens and her blood count comes back up, they will release her from the hospital. From there we count the days. Somewhere around day 150 they start looking at transitioning her home but she will have to wait a full year after transplant before she can go out into crowds or be around children because she has to receive all new inoculations and that will take several months. Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support. We could not have done this without all of you and we are so so grateful for everything that the community and our friends and family have done for us. Please help us pray that she engrafts quickly.

UPDATE: Emma is halfway through her second round of chemo and feeling pretty strong. Once she recovers from this round, she’ll receive a heavy dose of chemo to completely wipe out her cells and then she will receive her transplant. Once she receives her transplant she will be in isolation until it engrafts. This could take anywhere from 1 to 4 months and it’s extremely hard on the body. We are so grateful to everyone for the cards of encouragement and participation in the many fundraisers going on for Emma. We will never be able to thank everyone personally but please know we are all so grateful and overwhelmed with your generosity and kindness. We are still waiting to find out if we have a donor so thank you to everybody who signed up on bethematch.com that is an unbelievable gift. Please don't forget about us in your prayers; the hardest part is yet to come.

UPDATE: Emma has been doing pretty well. The days are going by fast. Right now they are just waiting for her next bone marrow biopsy to see if she is in remission. Once she is in remission they can get her ready for the bone marrow transplant. Emma has surgery on Monday where they are going to send chemo up her spine, put a central port in her chest, remove the PICC line in her arm, and do the bone marrow biopsy. We will know more after that and will keep everyone posted. Please pray for a speedy surgery, continued strength and for remission!!!!

UPDATE: Emma is still struggling with the stomach infection but it is getting a little bit better. She had another blood transfusion today to try to keep her numbers up. Being the tough person she is, she is feeling pretty good. Please continue to pray for healing, strength and energy for Emma, Eddie and the rest of the families.

The family would also like to send a message out to all of you generous souls who have offered to donate bone marrow for Emma…..The only way is to go through www.bethematch.com. They will send you a kit in the mail, you swab your check and send it back to them. You’ll go into a computer database that will be searching for a match for Emma. But once you are in the databank you may be called on down the road for somebody else with leukemia. There’s no real way to donate only in Emma’s name. The computer only searches for markers that will match her DNA. The family is so grateful to everyone who has offered to be tested. The love and support that has poured out of everyone is so heartwarming and they are also very grateful.

But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength

A side note: For some strange reason Facebook decides after every UPDATE posted to this account that suspicious activity is taking place so they temporarily lock the account until certain steps are taken to prove that the account is what it says it is. I apologize it disappears after every update. I am working to resolve the issue. In the meantime, in order to get updates out, I will continue to post updates on her Go Fund Me https://www.gofundme.com/cexmp-emmas-fight-against-leukemia
