Update Below - Since our case was rejected by St. Jude’s three times because of lack of space. The exact post can also be found on my Facebook page “Reynardo Elliott” along with photos for those who are following, Thank You and God Bless You for giving.
My Heart ❤️ Is Filled With Joy, My Eyes Are Filled With Tears , & My Skin Is Filled With Goosebumps Right Now. This update is for everyone who have donated their hard earned money to this worthy cause, & for everyone who have taken a minute out of their precious time & busy schedules to Pray, Make a Link for us, Like, Comment, or Share a post concerning my Goddaughter, Azaria Ajarie fighting Blood Cancer. B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia to be exact. Special Thank You to the Doctors at the Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay Jamaica , who are doing the best they can, with whatever resources they have, in order to save this precious little Angel’s Life. Special Thank You also to Dr Petra Hines from St Mary Jamaica , who studied Medicine in Cuba , And was able to use her connections to the medical fraternity there, to get us into their system. Azaria now has a case number for one of the best Oncology facilities in the World , located in Havana Cuba , so if anything should go sideways with Azaria’s treatment in Jamaica , (Hope it not my God) we can just grab her up and head straight there. If you are reading this & you have read my past posts about Azaria, you would have seen where I mentioned that with the Proper Medical Treatment, 85% of patients suffering from this condition, the cancer actually goes into remission, and most of them end up cured. On the other hand, if they don’t get the proper medical treatment , they can in fact at anytime, collapse and die. Now, based upon the fact that initially, the Doctors at the Cornwall Regional Hospital were running all the tests that they could, but still could not find out what was wrong with Azaria, back when she first got admitted to the Hospital in June, & it wasn’t until her blood samples were sent overseas, that we all found out what she was suffering from. That fact, coupled with a second opinion from another very prominent private doctor, were the reasons why we felt that overseas was the best place for her to get treatment. Now that we have found out what her condition is, and with the help of Dr Hines, we have sent her blood samples and medical records to our facility in Havana Cuba , they have confirmed that Azaria does not need to have a Bone Marrow Transplant “AT THIS TIME” - Which still doesn’t mean that she might not need to have one in the future, & the approximate cost of this operation, is 5.4 Million Jamaican Dollars. Plus if anything does happen and we do have to rush her to Cuba , (& again I say hope it not my God) the cost for Hematology treatment alone, is $22k US Dollars, and that is the most reasonable there is. With that said, since the Doctors in Jamaica have already taken samples from Azaria’s bone marrow, and spine, and have already started Chemotherapy on her, the Doctors in Cuba have recommended that we continue with that treatment, because it’s the same treatmentthat they would have put her on first as well, and monitor her progress to remission. Then if that doesn’t work, then we bring her over there. Now since we asked for public assistance and public funding, it is only right that we report to the public on how their hard earned money is being spent, hence this lengthy post. The Donations that you all are giving as of now, is to purchase the medication for Azaria’s Chemotherapy & Treatment that the Government can’t provide. The Ministry of Health does try to make Cancer Treatment for Children in Jamaica as free as possible, but the fact of the matter is that they cannot always provide these very expensive medications to everyone, so at some point in time we compulsory have to come out of pocket to cover expenses. Secondly, Azaria’s father Kevon Ajarie is the sole bread winner for the family, and he doesn’t earn much. Thirdly, Azaria’s mother, Asheka Ramsay, is not able to work, since she has to be at the Hospital with Azaria seven days a week, from morning till night. She lives in Westmoreland, and travels to the Hospital in Montego Bay every day, that’s $1,000 Jamaican for bus fare alone. Then comes food, bills, Azaria’s supplies and all other living expenses. If all goes well and we never have to take Azaria overseas, then this Treatment and Expenses will continue for the next 2-3 years. We can clearly see how this will easily add up for a poor Jamaican family who just doesn’t have it. So now when you give, now when you donate your hard earned moneys to this struggling family, whether to the Scotia Bank Account listed below if you are in Jamaica , or to this GoFundMe Account https://www.gofundme.com/HELP-AZARIA?pc=ot_co_dashboard_a&rcid=7d43d60aeda341a2874160ea9faa30b0 , you will know exactly what your money is being used for. Thank You All Again for all your Prayers and Donations, God Bless You All. #ShareThisPost.
