"MOM YOU ARE TOO OLD TO FIGHT THIS, I'M YOUNG AND I'M STRONG...I GOT THIS!"
And you know what?... He's right, He is young and He is strong and he will fight this and WIN!!!
CML is a rare form of blood cancer that normally affects the elderly, even more rare in children.With this being so rare there are no specialists for CML where we live in Oklahoma. Among the US there are only few specialists, which are out of state. The insurance coverage we have will not cover any of the expenses for a specialist out of state. Since he was diagnosed he has been on chemo daily and has undergone treatment at OU Children's Hospital, which has wonderful doctor overseeing his treatment. But although the doctors here are great they have no experience with CML in children. For Andrew to have the best chance of beating this he needs to see a specialist.
As a parent i can provide him with so many thing, like love, comfort and support but unfortunatly i am unable to provide him with the medical care he needs to save his life.
Angels are greatly needed to send Andrew to a specialist that can offer him the best care possible.Please pray for him to be strong and healthy. All donations are greatly appreciated.The money raised will go directly to medical and travel expences for Andrew to see a CML specialist. All unused donations will go to research to help find a cure for CML.
