On September 18, 2014 Jessica gave birth to her first and only baby. This 6 pound 7 ounce boy named Hudson would change the course of her life forever. Hudsons' birth would prove to be more than just a miracle of life, but a miracle that would ultimately save his mother's life.
The following two months were filled with lots of laughter and love, but they also brought low blood count levels, four visits to the emergency room and numerous questions without any answers.
On January 14, 2015 Jessica had an appointment with a Hematologist to perform a bone marrow biopsy. She was to return on January 26, 2015 for the biopsy results. Two days later, January 16, 2015, Jessica was called into the Doctors office and was diagnosed with Adult Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
The next few days we began to prepare for battle!
On January 19, 2015 Jessica was admitted into
Long Beach Memorial Hospital and she began Chemotherapy on January 20, 2015.
This page has been created to help with the financial burden. The diagnosis was so sudden and unexpected. I know times are tough for many but any help would be appreciated. Prayers and positive vibes are also accepted. Jessica is planned to be hospitalized for at least twenty nine days. Afterwards, Doctors have stated that Jessica will be at home recovering for a minimum of two months. She will be considered neutropenic, her immune system has zero white blood cells to fight off infections. Thank you for taking the time to read the story of my little sister Jessica and her life-saving baby Hudson.
