His immune system sees the platlets as foreign and kills them off; Leaving him with the possibility of bleeding uncontrollably or a brain hemorrhage which can be fatal. Every month or so he has to go to Vancouver children's hospital, a very costly trip but necessary. I recently found work as road builder so I'm often in camp, unfortunately I've been layed off for over a month now after being strung along for 3 weeks due to the winter season. I've been trying several of the local Mills as well as local road building contractors and everything in between with no luck due to the time of year. I just want to be able to get my son to his appointments and pay for his medication through the next few months untill work picks up again. Our savings has been depleted and we have no where else to turn. With so much uncertainty in the future a loan just isn't possible; so I ask for your help. As I said every little bit helps and we appreciate everyone who takes the time to donate.
