HELP ASA FIGHT LEUKEMIA.
Asa age 14 was diagnosed with AML Leukemia in October 2020. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) happens when the body makes too many immature white blood cells. These cells, called myeloid blasts, can't mature into normal white blood cells. Because AML develops and gets worse quickly, prompt treatment is very important. Of kids who have leukemia, 20% have AML.
He is currently at Wendy Fitzwilliam Children's Hospital and is being transferred to a Cancer Institute in North Carolina to continue treatment. He just completed his first of six cycles of intense chemotherapy. While the hospital is doing the best they can with their resources, only a few children have even been diagnosed with this type of leukemia locally. The best treatment option for him would be in the United States.
Before he can travel, he will first need medical clearance. Once he is able to fly, he will be on the next available flight out of Trinidad to North Carolina where he will continue his treatment.
Funds obtained will go towards him and all expenses incurred.
Funds will be withdrawn on behalf of Asa by his relative Tishelle Dhoray. All contributions will be then transferred to his mom Donna.
Asa, age 14 loves cricket and football and has been playing the game from a young child. He has trained with Darren Ganga Cricket Academy and BASE (Samuel Badree’s School of Sport Education) under Penal Debe Community Organization's 10 week cricket training. He was the captain of his primary school’s cricket team, and brought them victory at Victoria District Cricket Finals (2019). He is often seen playing sports and is well know in the community. He was always a vibrant, active child with a charismatic personality.
He attended Picton Presbyterial PrimarySchool and now San Fernando West Secondary School. He is active in the Penal Debe Community Organization.
