Cheeky's Cancer Has Returned (My Nephew Naaman).

There’s unfortunately no way to break the news gently: Naaman has had a CNS (Central Nervous System) relapse and will be starting a new treatment all over again. A recent spinal fluid tests came back showing leukemia cells in his spinal fluid, which has been clear for close to two years.  
Because of this recent relapse Naaman will now be in the hospital for about a month.
He will need radiation this time.
Likely he will be in more intensive and condensed treatment for six months, followed by a longer maintenance phase.
The treament is some new, some old chemotherapies he has already had.
He will lose his hair. Again.

Hes currently admitted at Smilow cancer hospital because of his counts dropping so low. He will have steriods,  chemo and lumbar punctures, and another bone marrow check after this month to look again.

First and foremost please keep Naaman in prayer along with his parents Nicole, Neil and their daughter Nadine. Having to go through something like this once is difficult enough and now they're having to go through it all over again with a more intense treatment plan.
Please share this and also donate what you can to help alleviate the financial burden from any medical bill, miscellaneous expense and also the time needed off from work so they can focus on beating this once and for all!

Thank you!
