Deuce's Fight Against Leukemia

Anyone who knows Jimitri and Ruby Green know how good of parents they are and how much their kids mean to them. Their son Deuce just celebrated his second birthday last month and Jaleah is just 6 months old. Deuce has been battling the flu the last couple weeks, but has been unable to kick the symptoms, running a fever for longer than seemed normal. While celebrating Jimitri's 26th birthday the other night, he and Ruby decided they needed to take Deuce to the hospital. After running blood tests that showed abnormally low counts, the Commerce ER immediately requested an ambulance to take him to Dallas children's hospital. There he had to have an immediate blood transfusion and has since tested positive for Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Deuce begins chemo treatments tomorrow, January 23 and will have to complete three months of inpatient treatments before he can be reassessed to determine the overall state of his health. Their family of four will be living at the hospital for at least three months, and as you can imagine this will incur a large amount of medical expenses. While prayers are requested for this tremendous family of faith, we also request your financial support so that we can reach our goal of $10,000 before they come home from the hospital.
