Help Miguel Marin beat Leukemia

Hello everyone, Miguel (or Migo as everyone calls him) is an energetic and sweet little 5 year old boy from Iowa Park, Texas, (outside Wichita Falls). On December 17, 2020, Migo was taken in to the Doctor's office to get a swollen eye looked at and thanks to the well trained medical staff they believed there was something  major causing the issue. On that same day he was admitted to Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth where Migo was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).  

The Doctors said that they caught it early but treatment had to start right away. Not even 48 hours later, Migo started his first round of Chemotherapy treatments. He will be spending the next 6 weeks at Cooks and because of Coronavirus rules only one family member can be with him at a time. 

Migo has a long ways to go till a full recovery as he will have a minimum of 8 months of treatment he has to go through and it could be longer depending on if the treatments need to be altered or changed depending on how the Luekemia reacts.

The family does have insurance but this amount and type of treatment and length of hospital stays will get costly and the parents will have to miss quite a bit of work to be able to be with Migo while he goes through treatments away from home. So the family will need financial help with the medical bills and living expenses as their income becomes less. The family also has two other children, Berklee (8) and Leighton (7) to care for. 

Migo has a tough battle ahead and the last thing the family needs to worry about at this point is financial issues, anyone that contributes we and the family thank you so much for you generosity.  Another way everyone could contribute is spiritually; Migo and his family could use prayer for the Holy Spirit to step in and comfort through His truths and intimacy as they go on this journey. "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again; rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your request to God. And the peace of God which Transends all understanding will guard your hearts and your  minds in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:4-7
