My Son Jake is fighting Leukemia

Our journey begin on Saturday November 18, 2017. My son was playing on his computer and his eye went blurry. He messaged me and asked about his eye. I told him that I was coming to get him to take him to the doctors. We went to the ER and they couldn't see anything wrong. I asked them to do blood work and the doctor chuckled at me. They didn't do blood work but they referred us to see an eye doctor. I called the next day to set up an appointment. They got us in the same day. This is when his eye doctor knew something serious was wrong. He said he was going to call our doctor right away and get some blood work. They called our doctor and on Tuesday November 21 we were seen by his DR. She ordered blood work and she said she would have the results the same day. We left for awhile and that is when are world came crumbling down. Our doctor walked in and said I am so so sorry Jacob has leukemia! We cried, we screamed, we hit things. We were in disbelief! They rushed us away to Minneapolis Children's Hospital. My son was admitted to the hospital and he will have a long journey ahead of him. They said his treatment plan will be 3 1/2 years. The first 30 days are very important. They will be aggressive with his chemo and hope that he will go into remission. He will be in the hospital for 30 days for sure and if all goes well he will do outpatient treatments. I am a single mom with 5 kids and I will not be able to work because I need to take care of my son. I have no idea how I will pay the bills and afford all the expenses that come along with taking my son to his appointments, parking, gas, and any other expenses. My family could really use your help now so that way I can stay with my son through out this journey. If you're not able to donate please pray for my son and our family. Please share our story so others can see. Thank you so much for your support!
