On August 4th, Neji was diagnosed with a serious disease called Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia, (IMHA). This means that his immune system is attacking his own red blood cells. Treatment often includes a variety of drugs and close monitoring of his vital signs and laboratory values. So far Neji has had three blood transfusions and is putting up a good fight. This disease has been said to be worse than cancer but that does not mean it is a death sentence. We have already paid about $5,000 dollars in treatment for him to get this far. The funds raised will be used for future medications and treatments necessary for his treatment. We need the funds soon, as this disease acts fast. Neji means the world to my Wife and I, and to our families. We don't have kids and we consider our animals our kids and this is the hardest thing we've ever had to do. It's been a rollercoaster of emotions but we are fighting hard to beat this terrible disease; and hope to bring awareness to others about it. We will be so grateful for any help and donations. We are students working part time, and we are willing to give everything we have and some. Please donate anything for his treatments. We greatly appreciate it.
