For some background: Jacob was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia on August 24, 2020. Since then, he has began to receive treatment down at Cedar Sinai hospital. His chemo will be aggressive and it will be tough. They have both been so strong and have such a positive attitude towards the shitty (excuse my language) situation. It is looking like this will be a lengthy treatment and recovery process. He likely will not be able to work for some time and Danielle is off work focusing on supporting him in the hospital. I am hopeful that these funds will ease their mind of finances back home and allow them to focus on treatment and healing. Again, COVID has complicated our ways of getting gifts and items to them while they are in the hospital but we are looking into this.
Danielle and Jacob have been married about 11 months. They have worked so hard to purchase a home and start a life together given many obstacles they have overcome throughout their lives. My heart and both our families hearts are aching for them and we are all processing this information. Support in the form of donation, prayers, well wishes~ it is all heard and appreciated. Any funds collected will go to help with medical expenses and their monthly financial obligations back home.
