My wife, Stacy, and I have started this fundraising page to help Jeremy, Tatum and their family, as they try to put their lives back together. While they are physically safe, all their belongings, all their children's belongings, have been lost in the fire. Some of you may recall, their youngest child, Dalton, has been undergoing treatment since November 2015 through Oakland Childrens Hospital after being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. That treatment has involved nearly two years of chemotherapy at home, currently daily and monthly IV treatment at the hospital as well as blood level monitoring. During most of that time, Dalton was required to remain at home. His mother, Tatum, was unable to work for many months in order to care for him and provide home schooling, at great expense both emotionally and financially. Dalton still has another 18 months to go with his treatments.
Jeremy and Tatum have 4 children, 3 of whom are teens, who also lost all of their belongings. They were renting their home, so insurance is not going to be available to assist them. Kitchen ware, food, clothing, housing and so many other items will be necessary for their daily needs and to begin to rebuild their lives. They will still face the expenses related to Dalton's travel to and from Oakland Hospital and for his treatment needs. They literally made it out of the house with the clothes on their backs. Obviously there will be many needs in the weeks and months ahead.
We know many people would like to help and offsetting expenses is a great way to contribute. Please consider a donation to help this family cope with the financial burden facing them, as they simply deal with the
pain and fortitude of a child with leukemia, every day, and now the loss of all they owned and the necessities needed to live their lives. Your donations will go directly to Jeremy and Tatum, not us.
Love to all of you. Jeremy, Tatum, Azure, Quentin, Ebony and little Dalton! You are all so strong and we love you so much!
