Help Support Miss Sage

Sage Lucille was born on December 3, 2009. At just 6 months of age, she was diagnosed with a rare type of leukemia called acute leukemia of ambiguous lineage.  She received chemotherapy for 6 months and, although she went into remission in September 2010, it was decided that the cancer would come back in her case if she didn't receive a stem cell transplant(Dec. 2010).  Sage has remained in remission for nearly 4 years now.  However, she has experienced many setbacks and complications due to the transplant and medications. She remained in the hospital for a year following her transplant because of her weak immune system, chronic lung disease, severe lung hemorrhage, multiple instances of septic shock, graft vs. host disease, etc.  After coming home in January 2012, everything seemed to improve gradually. I think it was partly due to the big sister role she wanted to live up to as her brother was born in February 2012 :) At this point in time, her biggest issues are severe adrenal insufficiency, weakened immune system, and chronic liver disease.  She was listed for liver transplant on October 22, 2014



I've been unable to have a job all of these years because Sage is not allowed to go to daycare and must have a nurse with her or someone very familiar with her case at all times.  Any money raised will be put towards car mainenance, typical childhood expenses, gas money to help fund our trips to Georgetown to see the liver specialists, and Sage's meds and hospital visits that aren't covered by her insurance.  Thanks so much to anybody who decides to donate! And to those who are unable to, don't forget, prayers are free!!!
