Malcolm's Fight Against Leukemia

Hello, everyone. My name is Jovan Jalivay. I am starting a fund raiser for my son Malcolm Jalivay. Malcolm is a loving, playful two year old  with a great personality. He loves watching cartoons, playing with his sister, playing with Hotwheel cars, and mimicking those around him.  Just about everyone who meets him, almost immediately, falls in love with him.  On September 20, 2018 my wife and I noticed he was very warm.  We gave him children's Tylenol for fever symptoms and took him to bed. Malcolm's temperature spiked to 104.3 early the next morning. We took him to the emergency room at our local hospital. He was then taken to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St. Louis, MO, where he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Malcolm has had a bone marrow biopsy, lumbar puncture,and several blood and platelet transfusions since his arrival at Cardinal Glennon. He has just started his first round of chemotherapy. He will have to stay in the hospital for at least one month before he starts his visits in the clinic. My wife and I are asking for immediate assistance if anyone is able. Contributions will be used for travel expenses, food, child care and medical expenses for Malcolm. We are very grateful, and any donation, no matter the amount is appreciated. We undstand if people are unable to give monetary donations. We are grateful for all donations whether they are food, gift cards, money, etc.  I am a proud father and would not ask if I could shoulder this load alone, but I cannot. Malcolm is in urgent need of assistance.

Thank you all for your kindness and generosity.
