December 16th was to be just a sick visit to pediatricians 3 yr old Jaiczielle who goes by Jaicz Jaicz had severe black/purple bruising on his legs and back that worried his parents. After a finger prick the pediatrician sends Jaicz Jaicz to the ER. Where they do extensive testing. His platelets count was low which is what caused any little bump or tap to become huge bruises. Testing results finally come back on 12/18/19 they gathered family together along with a group of specialist to give the family the news. Jaicz Jaicz had A.L.L ( Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) Mom and Dads life stopped for that moment. Brought them to their knees. Mom has taken F.M.L.A for 12 weeks to care for him during the. first phases of chemo. She will not be paid for any of it. Since she carries the health insurance. With her cut income for 12 weeks and health insurance payment. Plus a $6750 deductible to meet. They are in dire need of any help. Right now each chemo treatment he is receiving is costing $2100. With 3 other children 13,10 and 2. Plus mortgage payment and bills. Its been a very stressful time for the family.
Jaicz Jaicz was released from hospital on 12/23/19 only to be readmitted on 12/30 amd released on 12/31/19. Then after his Chemo treatment on 01/02/20 he spiked 102 fever. He was immediately readmitted and started on antibiotics. At this point he was already Neutrapenic so anything was detramental to his fragile body. He was diagnosed with MSSA in his blood a Staph infection. This was basically caused by bacteria we carry on the skin. Being Neutropenic immuno compromised even that caused him to get really ill. He has been in the hospital since 01/02/20 on IV antibiotics three times a day. He will need to remain on IV antibiotics for an additional 2 weeks after discharge.
We ask for prayers for him and his family. Prayer is so strong. Please pray for Jaicz Jaicz’s healing.
We appreaciate any and everything anyone is able to donate to help pay for medical bills , health insurance premiums. We are very grateful for anything. Thank you for touching your hearts for my nephew. Please hug your healthy children. This is something that was never ever in a million years expected. No cancer runs in either parents side. Doctors advised the family this childhood cancer is not genetic. They say this is something a child might come exposed to that causes their body to function incorrectly. Exposure can be air elements etc. they are just not sure what causes it.
Thank you for reading Jaiczielle’s story and thank you from the bottom of our broken hearts for donating to help in his fight!
