Help Paola and her family battle leukemia

My name is Irelys Perez and I'm a single mother of two precious kids. My older daughter is 5 years old. A sweet, humble and loving little girl who was diagnosed with Leukemia B-ALL on Monday, September 21, 2020 around 5 PM.

She was having fevers and body pain and her pediatrician said it was just growth pain and so we treated her as if. Her fevers were increasing and getting worse, now it was every day. I took her to the hospital and they made a lot of test and Drs. said it seems to be Leukemia or Lymphoma. We were transferred to Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital, they ran with a lot more tests and they were able to confirm that my baby girl has Leukemia.  I hate to listen to her asking why is this happening to her, asking when this is going to end and that she wants to go home with such pain in her voice and tears covering her face and not be able to do anything for her. She does not look like my happy and active little girl anymore. She is tired all the time, she don't smile anymore and in constant pain. My heart breaks for her and for not being able to be with my 3 months old baby boy at the same that I'm with her at the hospital.

Today, I along with my family are asking you and each person that feels in their hearts for my little girl, to cooperate with whatever they can. Whatever you can give is well received and will be in great use. I lost my job at Amazon which I started the Sunday before her diagnosis. I'm fighting to get my job back since is a better pay and perfect schedule for me to take care of my kids especially her. Her hospital care and treatment are not fully covered by the health insurance. We need reliable transportation to take her to all her appointments for chemotherapy and a place for her to call home and the government would not put us on top of the housing waiting list. Her immune system is very very low and so she needs extra care for the next 2 1/2 years.

Please help me, help us, give my daughter a better life and make this long process less stressful and less painful.
