Hope for John on life support

John is a fighter! He's beat lukemia, bone infections & more! But a recent re-admission has resulted in complications for his brain - requiring life-support.

His mom has worked tirelessly as a nurse's aid & as John's caregiver throughout his cancer, repeated hospital admissions - & has kept her HOPE. But right now she needs to be able to stay by John's side.

Help us raise money for John's mom to be able to take time off of work to be with her son in this critical time and to help cover John's rising medical bills. 

For persective, the average PICU stay is between $3k-$4k per DAY. This is the FIRST GoFundMe campaign where we've asked for support out of all the care he's received.

Currently John is in Pediatric ICU on CVVH, mechanical ventilation, & more.  John's body continues to tolerate the support & we are thankful for that.
