Noah's Journey on FB

Dear Family and Friends,
I have started this page for our dear little friend, Sweet Noah Sanchez and his family.
If you havent met this great kiddo and his family yet, I am sure you have heard me speak of him often.  If not, let me introduce  him to you and give you his and his families story.
Over a year ago, Noah was diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Leukemmia (ALL), he was 4 at the time.  Shortly after his diagnosis our own Keeton was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Noah's family and ours became very close as we supported each other through our childrens very emotional and difficult medical journeys.  In March of this year, both of our boys were in Remission from this stupid cancer stuff. PRAISE GOD!
However; just a couple of months after Noah's remission, he began to have severe pains and was re-admitted into the hospital, it was then that he was given the very unfortunate news that his cancer was back.
The doctors knew that a bone marrow transplant was necesssary, but first they must kill the cancer cells. After another series of very agressive chemo treatment, the results revealed that the cancer cells were not affected.  Doctors scrambled and researched to try one more type of Chemo, while also making plans to transport Noah to St. Judes Hospital if it didnt work.  BUT IT WORKED AND THEY HAVE A MATCH FOR HIS BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT!!! 
As of now, Noah is still in the hospital and it will be a long journey until he his healthy and ready to go home.  Prior to his transplant he will be undergoing intensive radiation and MORE intensive chemo treatments, along with various surgeries, all prior to doing the transplant, he will then continue to stay (months) in the hospital as the new marrow begins to grow in his little body.
NOW, with this story, I ask that all of you continue to pray for him and his family.  The physical and emotional journey has been very difficult for all of them and all that know and love this kiddo, but in addition to your prayers I have set up this page on behalf of his families huge FINANCIAL burdens and needs. 
Noah's mother has been unable to work for over a year now as she never leaves the hospital, Noah's Dad continues to work as much as possible, but misses work often as he understandably needs to physically be there for Noah during the times of difficult procedures, or Noah just NEEDS his Daddy. Please understand that this is a very hard working family, that has always been the GIVER to others in need, and they are not the type who feel comfortable asking for help. As a close family friend, I am aware of their huge need for financial assistance, that is why I am asking for YOUR HELP in their behalf.
Please know, that there are -0- extra $s in their accounts, no savings, and live only on Roberts paychecks, (if he is able to work).  There are still household bills, electricity, water, insurance, etc every month, and 3 other children to care for, not to mention, extra fuel to the hospital, hospital meals, parking, or even a new movie or toy that Noah might enjoy as he is living in his hospital bed.
PLEASE, search your heart and give what you feel you can give to help this family in desperate need.  You can make a donation anonmously, or list your name challenging your friends, family, team mates, or co-workers to match.  EVERY donation will go DIRECTLY to this family.
PLEASE SHARE THIS with all of your friends and family, via your FB page or email.  Lets spread the word and do all we can to help this wonderful family.
Each of you are a blessing,May you also be blessed.
