Hello My Name is Joseph, In October 2013 I was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. I am on my third alternative chemotherapy treatment trying beat this cancer down low enough to get a bone marrow transplant, treatments one and two didn't do so well. AML Leukemia is rare for younger children and is sometimes hard to beat as in my case not allowing me to leave the hospital. I don't fully understand how sick i am, and i must admit its kinda scary having all these machines sending medicine into my body. My Doctors have been doing the best they can and my nurses have been great. I hope to bring in other expert doctor advice and cancer research specialist to help me into full remission. My mother stays with me at the hospital everyday and sleeps on a couch every night to always be here for me. I have yet to stay one night alone and hope I never have too. Other family members have stayed the night as well, like when my mom caught a bad cold. I have no Immune system left in my body to fight infection or sickness because of the Chemotherapy and i cannot risk being around anyone who is sick. My Dad stays on the weekends as well, and on any extra days off he gets from work. He would like to come more often but the hospital is not too close to home. Soon I hope to get my bone marrow transplant which will be in a different hospital much farther than the hospital I am already at and the expenses will be even greater and difficult for my parents to stay with me or visit me. Please if you can, help us with donations for our hospital expenses, additional medical advice and co-pays. And If you could say a prayer for me, I would really appreciate it.
