Help Cedric & Family Fight Leukemia

This is Cedric and he turned 4 in January. He's just like most 4 yr old boys; loves Paw Patrol, trucks, cars, the Denver Bronco's, and animals.
But the one thing that makes him different, is that he's been diagnosed with ALL. Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). ALL is a blood cancer that results when abnormal white blood cells (leukemia cells) accumulate in the bone marrow. ALL progresses rapidly, replacing healthy cells that produce functional lymphocytes with leukemia cells that can't mature properly. The leukemia cells are carried in the bloodstream to other organs and tissues, including the brain, liver, lymph nodes and testes, where they continue to grow and divide. The growing, dividing, and spreading of these leukemia cells may result in a number of possible symptoms. ALL is typically associated with having more B lymphatic cells than T cells. B and T cells play active roles in preventing the body from infections and germs and destroying cells that have already become infected. B cells particularly help prevent germs from infecting the body while T cells destroy the infected cells.
Currently, the McDonald House at the hospital in Colorado where Cedric is being treated is full. The hospital is only able to house Cedric's father and stepmother, Nick & Deanna Smith, for a few days, and then they will need to come up with their own accommodations. Nick & Deanna live 9 hours away from Denver.  They are with Cedric and making sure he is as loved and comfortable as possible, but being away from home and not able to be at work is quite a financial strain on the family. Please help us raise money to lessen the financial burden for Nick & Deanna that this awful situation has presented for this family, so they can fully support Cedric in his fight against leukemia.
Thank you!!
