James’ Joyful Journey

James just turned 7! He’s now in remission but still getting chemotherapy daily at home and monthly at the hospital to remain healthy and keep fighting against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He’s had various chemo treatments since January 22, 2017 when he was diagnosed. His Journey with treatments won’t end until May of 2020 but he’s our Superhero taking every treatment in stride and with a smile! We are happy he is healthy but the reality of staying this way means mounting medical bills, travel expenses, prescription costs, and lots of time off from work so we can spend time as a family and keep James home when he’s not at school to limit his germ exposures. He’s also in Physical and occupation therapy to help with his walking, balance and fine motor skills. We have been blessed with a multitude of help from family, friends, and organizations but still have several thousands of dollars in outstanding medical bills and even some in collections. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. We are so appreciative of your support, and could never thank you proprerly!
