Seven years ago I was blessed with the birth of a beautiful baby boy. His name is Jonathan. Jonathan is a first grade student at Franklin School in North Bergen, NJ. He is a very sweet and caring kid always willing to help everyone. Jonathan is playful, goofy, and loves to smile. Jonathan was always a healthy kid… up until this past April. Jonathan was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma. At no point did he show any symptoms or signs of illness. It was devastating to find out that my son suffers from a condition of this magnitude.
These past 6 months have been extremely difficult for us. Jonathan has been through a long and painful process including two surgeries, Chemotherapy and all the side-effects that it brings. Emotionally it has drained us, but somehow Jonathan still finds the strength to smile. He is my world and I love him with all my heart.
Currently we are struggling financially to keep up with all these medical expenses. Jonathan requires constant care and it is difficult for me to leave his side during the day. When I am able to leave him to work I need to pay for a caregiver. No one could ever imagine being in a position like this. Never in my life did I think I would be at this point… but I am and I am asking that my friends and family to help out if you can.
My only hope is that Jonathan will one day walk out from the hospital with that beautiful smile on his face having defeated this horrible disease known as cancer.
I thank you for your time and am extremely grateful for your generosity. May God bless you.
