Evan's Fight Against Leukemia Fund
This is the story of Evan Davies who is a very bright, fun-loving and athletic 12-year-old boy and my grandson. Evan has a sincere love for sports, like his father, and vigorously participates in baseball and basketball. He has a deep love for his family, enjoys playing with friends, riding his bike, and loves going to the lake with his family to camp, fish and go boating.
On July 9, 2017, all that changed when Evan had to be rushed to the Emergency Room after finding numerous bruises all over his legs for no apparent reason. After extensive tests were done, our family was given the devastating news that Evan has Leukemia. His diagnosis is T-Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
He was rushed to a children's cancer hospital in Rochester, NY where he is currently undergoing chemotherapy for the next 22-30 days. After completion of this treatment, Evan will need to make weekly visits to receive chemotherapy treatments for 3-4 months. Those day visits could turn into hospital admissions depending on the results of his bloodwork. After that stage of treatment is completed, Evan will require monthly visits for chemotherapy for 2-3 years. This treatment plan is obviously based on everything going as planned. We all know that life does not always work that way - especially with Cancer. Evan is facing a very long road to recovery.
Our very loving and caring family has been devastated by Evan's diagnosis. Our focus right now is on getting Evan through this very trying time of getting established on his chemotherapy treatment. It has been very rough on Evan and heartbreaking for our family to watch him go through. We only want the best medical care for Evan so he can have a bright and happy future.
I am hoping to raise $5,000 to cover the rising medical expenses that will not be covered by health insurance. Any donations may also be used for travel expenses as the children's hospital is 200 miles from their home. In addition, Evan has 2 siblings so there will be child care expenses to cover as well.
Any and all donations are considered to be a true blessing to our family. They will help to ease the financial strain to provide Evan with these necessary medical treatments in his battle against Leukemia.
Our family will be eternally grateful for any financial support we receive. Thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts.
