Help Daniel beat leukemia

Hi, everyone…
 
On February 17th of this year, our sweet Daniel Dreiling was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). He was immediately admitted to Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach, and is currently undergoing his fourth round of chemotherapy. Right now, doctors expect they will be able to get on top of this, but think it will be about two to three years before Daniel gets to have a “normal” life. And even then, he will have a lifetime of scans, doctor visits, medications, etc.
 
Unfortunately, Daniel is one of thousands of kids who are diagnosed with cancer every year, but to us he’s not one of thousands. He’s our Daniel. He’s our oldest brother, who says a prayer for his baby brother in the NICU, even while he’s lying in his own hospital bed. He’s our little league teammate who tells another kid, “You’ve got a great arm!” after accidentally being hit by an errant throw. He’s the 12-year-old boy who thanks his oncologist for working so hard to make him well. He is kind, and gentle, and gracious. And now he’s sick.
 
So we’re asking for help. Daniel and his family are in for a long journey…physically, emotionally, and financially. A study found that the mean cost of pediatric ALL treatment averages $103,250. “Treatment” meaning general in/outpatient hospital care. This number doesn’t include the extra expense of Daniel’s recent stay in the ICU after going into septic shock. It doesn’t include the cost of his parents’ daily gas usage and parking fee at the hospital, or their lost wages from taking time off work to be with their son. It doesn’t include Daniel’s 30+ daily medications he’ll take once his chemotherapy is done, or the special diet he will have to be on. It doesn’t include the routine professional sterilization of the whole house to protect Daniel’s compromised immune system.
 
We can’t do this without you. So if you can donate to the GoFundMe, thank you. If you can give blood or platelets at the hospital in his name, thank you. If you can say a prayer for his healing, thank you. If you can send good thoughts, thank you.
