On behalf of Brandon, I am doing this because we will need all the help we can get and a lot of support from family and friends, my name is Krystal and I am Brandon’s fiancé and Mia is our new born babygirl. 

Hello Everyone, we just recently found out that Brandon has cancer. Brandon had a growth on the left side of his throat for the past few months, us thinking it wasn't a big deal, we let time pass assuming he’d just had to get surgery. Brandon's surgery was scheduled for June 12, 2019, It lasted only
2 hours, with 2 more hours of recovery, this all went well. The tumor that the doctors took out wasn't what they had expected, it was deeper and much larger than anticipated. Despite their findings, he was allowed to come home right after recovery.

Today, June 17th, Brandon had an appointment To see the results of the mass that was removed from his throat. To our dismay, we have come to find out that Brandon has high grade B-cell lymphoma. As we walk this path to find a cure we have much to learn and endure while we educate ourselves on his type of cancer, more test are underway to pinpoint his condition, treatment will be expensive and We are reaching out to our community for help.

With I, Krystal  only working, we wont be making as much money as we used to. With our newborn Mia, our house and medical bills, I won’t be making enough to cover all our expenses. My family will need as much of support and positive blessings as possible.  Brandon right now is being strong and positive for the sake of our daughter Mia. For the mean time, he will be visiting doctors and finding treatment, in high hopes of getting cured.

Your support is needed, you don't have to donate but please share. Thank you everyone who has read our story, no amount is too small, we are very grateful for the help and support.

Hello everyone,
I would like to start by saying thank you, thank you for everyone for messaging us, sending us positive vibes, sending us formula for our little Mia and most of all thank you for all the support.

Brandon has been in the hospital since Tuesday morning, he went into the OR to get surgery on his chest. Doctors implanted a port under his skin to start chemo on the same day. The implanted port is used for giving IV medicines, fluids, or taking blood samples. His chemo started at 11 pm on July 2nd, he has to stay in the hospital for the next 5 days, he will be out on Sunday morning. Before he started his chemo, I brought his daughter Mia so he can be with her one last time since she's not allowed to be in the same room with Brandon while his in chemo, its was really hard for him to say bye to his little bundle of joy.
His chemo IV bag has to be change every 24 hours, every time his IV bag change he has to be clean up so he wont get sick. His mother Janette Lackore has been staying with him for these days while I'm at home taking care of our daughter Mia. Brandon has been doing good but has been feeling sick which that is one of the side effects. The good news about all this, the chemo is working, killing his cells. Every month on the first week for the next 4 months he has to go back for chemo and stay in the hospital for 5 days.

Thank you everyone for having the time to read and share. For the support and love.

Sincerely, Krystal Saravia.

This week I had a PET scan done to see if the cancer has spread through my body. I was put to sleep so the doctor could take bone marrow out of my pelvic bone, the doctor also did an echo cardio to make sure the cancer did not spread to my heart.

This is what Brandon’s mom said

We went over all of Brandon’s test results and treatment plans this morning. Cancer has not spread it is only in the area where the tumor was removed but near lymph nodes. He doesn’t have Burkitt’s - but he has another high grade B-cell lymphoma (non-Hodgkins) NOS that requires aggressive chemotherapy ASAP. So chemo starts next week. He goes in early next week to put a port in his chest and he will be admitted into the hospital mid-to-end of next week. He will stay in the hospital 5-6 days while chemo is being administered. He will have 4 cycles of chemo (one week in the hospital each month for the next four months). While he is home (3 weeks per month) he will have blood drawn a few times per week to monitor blood cell counts and also routine test to make sure that chemo is working. We still cannot believe this is all happening so fast. Surprisingly, I feel much better today than I have all week. He (we all) will get through this because of the love and support from all of our family and friends! ❤️ Thank You Brandon is the bravest and most strong-minded person! He is my hero and I have total faith that he will make a full recovery and he will raise his little girl to be even stronger AND we will all be stronger because of it.

Wednesday we had an appointment with the radiation doctor, he checked all my lymph-nodes and luckily found there are no signs of the cancer, at this time he can’t do much more, the cancer that I have is Burkett’s lymphoma, which starts in the white blood cells and spreads rapidly if untreated, it’s a very aggressive blood cancer and chemotherapy is mandatory for my condition at this time.

Friday, I went to the appointment with the oncologist. He did a full physical on me checking for inflamed lymph nodes. Yet again I came up clean. The doctor gave me more information about this cancer and made it clear that we have to act fast or This cancer can get into the spinal fluid and give me brain cancer. This cancer is very deadly if left untreated. To confirm that the cancer hasn’t spread, multiple test are necessary, which include, HIV test, spinal fluid test, bone marrow test, multiple blood work tests and many more. Shortly after I do all these tests I will be starting chemotherapy for up to 6months. I will need to have a pump underneath the skin in my chest to administrate the chemo. Also I will have a dose of chemo injected into my spine to make sure the cancer doesn’t spread there.
I had another appointment right after that one with the ENT doctor that did my surgery, where they stuck 6 20gage needles into my neck to take out fluid that is building up where the tumor was. Luckily I only have to do this one more time next week.

The doctor scheduled an appointment with an oncologist and scheduled a PET scan that is scheduled for next Tuesday.

The good news is that there is a 90% chance I will make it as long as I follow every guideline and directions and I stay strong mentally and physically with the support from friends and family. Thank you so much, to all my friends and family and everyone that donated. It means the world to me that there are so many good people to come to my aid in this time of need, my family and I are eternally grateful.
