This is my brother Jetullah Haliti who just recently got diagnosed with leukemia. He is 19 years old and is finishing his second year of college. Jetullah is very close to his family and friends and like others his age has hobbies like playing soccer with his friends.
More importantly though, he has always had a passion to have a positive impact on the community. From an early age, volunteering wherever needed and helping feed the poor, which has been an unfortunate reality in his third world home country of Kosovo. With his efforts being recognized and his religious knowlege far surpassing the other graduates at his age, Jetullah has become the imam at one of his local masjids.
Now as imam in the community and a brother to two other brothers and two sisters and so many more dreams and goals to achieve at this young age, Jetullah has come face to face with this challenge. Leukemia.
Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) which is also called acute lymphoblastic leukemia. “Acute” means that the leukemia can progress quickly, and if not treated, is likely to be fatal within a few months. "Lymphocytic" means it develops from early (immature) forms of lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell.
The main treatment which he needs in Turkey is his spine transplant, which needs to be done as soon as possible for his well being. He is from/lives in Mitrovica, Kosovo and their health care is very different from Canada/America and they do not have the treatments that we have been blessed with.
The doctors have stated that it is critical to send Jetullah to Turkey to receive the help he needs. We have currently raised enough money through our community to take him to Turkey, but now we need your help with raising 200,000 euros for him to get the help he needs to continue touching the hearts of so many more.
