It was Christmas Eve and while Adam slept soundly in his hospital bed, the lead oncologist at the children’s hospital walked over and delivered the heart breaking news. “He told us that our son has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) “recalls Adams mother. In that moment, a silence dawned the room as a parent’s worst fear realized. With the doctor attempting to shine light on the situation by providing a positive prognosis due to early detection, there was Adam, a soundly asleep two and a half year old boy on Christmas eve not realizing that his world was about to turn upside down.
After a month of treatment Adams cancer was not in remission which meant he has a high risk of the cancer relapsing in the future (as well as a slightly lower chance of survival). This also meant a second (more intense) round of Chemotherapy. This round of Chemo will suppress his immune system to a point where a simple cold would result in hospitalization or the slightest fungal infection could result in his death. This turn of events has resulted in the Belgard’s saving every penny they can since their insurance company will not cover the cost of the treatment that is expected to last an additional three years. While they are hopeful for the long term prognosis of their sons Leukemia, they consulted with the Infectious Diseases Control to exam their household so that they could be assured they are providing the most idealistic, health conscience living situation for their now three year old son. “They recommended we get rid of any structure or object that had mold or that presents the possibility of mold to grow right away “ tells Dave Belgard (Adams father), while the IDC was helpful it was their consultation with a microbiologist that truly became the straw that broke the camel’s back.
The Microbiologist discovered high traces of mold in the attic and highly recommended that it be remediated immediately for it would become hazardous to not their sons health but to all those residing in the home. “
With any and all income tied up in bills and treatment for Adams Leukemia Dave and Maria Belgard reached out to Treeium and asked to get a mold rid of the mold at their home. As members of our thriving community, it is with great pleasure we can announce that we will be taking on the task of Attic Insulation Removal and Mold Remediation based on client's existing positive mold test free of charge as part of the #TreeiumGivesBack initiative. In hopes to provide a suitable living situation for Adam as he braves his journey battling through Leukemia and alleviating some of the weight on the shoulders of Dave and Maria.
