Smiley Ricky's Bone Marrow Transplant

This is my son known as "Smiley Ricky".  He has undergone TWO the first one was with his OWN cord blood and now with an unrelated donor.  I'm a single mother not currently working yet as I'm his full time care giver.  I'm struggling financially to meet many of our basic living expenses plus some medical bills not covered by his insurance.  I'm being modest with our goal as I'm just hoping it will cover two months of our rent as were really falling behind on everything.  My son's journey has taken us on quite a roller coaster's been bumpy and shakey with lots of turbulence but with our faith we held on tight and didn't lose hope.  Ricky has shown strength, bravery and determination to fight against this ugly beast called Aplastic Anemia and he's came out fighting like a true warrior!  He was diagnosed on 8/27/2011 so we've fought hard for almost three years but I'm hoping The Lord has sent us his cure.  If anyone would like more details on his journey you could google Ricky Martinez Cord Blood.  Thank you for your support and love.  Any help would truly be appreciated.
