Help Olivia's Fight Against Leukemia

Donation protected

Update - we've updated our goal to $35,000 because of the absolutely tremendous support from the community. We are shocked, humbled, overwhelmed, and about 40 other emotions from the generosity and pure selflessness of all of you. From our entire family to yours, THANK YOU! Because of your help, we can completely cover the cancer treatment for this year and next year. You have truly shown us the light in an otherwise dark time


Our Story

Meet Olivia, our spirited 3-year-old who lights up every room she enters. Olivia is a bundle of energy, always on the move, whether she's playing with her 6-year-old sister or running around with our beloved farm animals. She has a passion for gymnastics and loves any activity that lets her stay active and engaged.



The Journey So Far

Our world turned upside down in mid-May. What started as a routine visit to the pediatrician on Monday, May 13, to investigate some unknown bruising, quickly escalated. By Wednesday, Olivia was diagnosed with AML type M7 leukemia. The whirlwind continued with a central line installed on Thursday, and her first day of chemotherapy on Friday.

The doctors at the children's hospital have been incredible, providing excellent care and working wonderfully with Olivia. Despite the abrupt and challenging changes, Olivia has shown immense strength and resilience. She's responded well to the treatment, with minimal side effects, and the doctors are optimistic about her progress.



Our Needs

This journey has brought unforeseen challenges, including preparing for a 6 to 8 months hospital stay and adjusting to new routines. We need your support to cover:

  • Unforeseen medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • Upkeep of our farm while we focus on Olivia's care
  • Creating positive experiences for Olivia and her sister to keep their spirits high during this difficult time


How You Can Help

Your prayers and donations mean the world to us. They will not only help cover essential costs but also provide a sense of community and support that is invaluable during this time. By contributing, you're helping us ensure Olivia and her sister have the love, care, and joyful experiences they deserve.

Thank you for standing with us in this fight. Your support, in any form, is a beacon of hope and strength for our family.



With gratitude,

The Helton Family
