Cheyenne is now 10 years old, she had just finished 4th grade & was excited to start summer camp when we went to the hospital for one of her 3 month follow up visits and were told that Cheyenne now has a secondary diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. What a shock this was for all of us. Just as my sweet little girl was finally starting to get used to life as a normal little girl again her world came crashing down around her. She has been in and out of the hospital for the last 6 months, having undergone a bone marrow transplant in November 2014. Thankfully we were able to find a donor on be the match.com or Cheyenne may not be here today to share her story. We are very greatful that there are such good-hearted, selfless people willing to do whatever it takes to help a child in need. We will be forever greatful to him or her for helpng our little girl.
Unfortunely due to Cheyenne's medical condition, she has been unable to go to school this year and I as her mother and primary caregiver had to leave work to go on FMLA as of October 2014 to take care of Cheyenne fulltime until she recovers and is able to go back to school, whiich may not be for several more months.
I am a single mother and the sole supporter of our family and being home fulltime has put a huge financial strain on us. I have applied through all of the normal channels for assistance and to my surprise, was denied. I have depleted all of my resources and I am now reaching out to all of you to ask for you help so that I can continue to provide a secure home for my family during this extremely difficult time. Any assistance at all no matter how small will make a difference in our lives, Cheyenne is such a sweet little girl who deserves to have a safe haven during this difficult time in her recovery and a positive outlook for the future, Please help me provide that for her.
I thank you all in advance for your support and generosity! May God Bless you all!
