My name is Jordan. I am Tristans mom. Tristan was diagnosed with High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on March 14th of this year. It was 4 days after the birth of our daughter Abigail. We have 3 kids now. Tristan is the oldest, he turned 3 in April. Wyatt is the middle, he is a year and a half. And Abigail is now almost 5 months old. When Tristan was first diagnosed his cancer count was 80% of his blood and 95% of his bone marrow was cancer. After his induction period, which is the first 29 days of treatment, in order for him to be considered in remission the cancer count in his bone marrow needed to be below .01. Well Tristans wasn't. His was .04 so he was moved to Very High Risk. About 2 weeks ago they checked his bone marrow again to see if he was in remission yet, and unfortunately for some reason that we are still not sure of, his cancer count went up to 15% in his bone marrow. So that is why I am creating this go fund me. He is going to have to get a bone marrow transplant and unfortunately they don't do them in Little Rock. Normally they send people to Dallas, Texas but we have no family there. And after the transplant I am going to have to have someone to take my other 2 kids while I am at the hospital because no one under the age of 5 will be allowed in the room with him. And he will be in the hospital afterwards for a minimum of 4 to 6 months. So we have decided to have him transferred to Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. It will only be 40 minutes away from my family. Normally we don't ask for help, especially my husband. We feel really bad about it, but it has gotten to the point where we don't know what else to do. So we are going to try to raise some money using this go fund me. So please if you can help us, everything donated will go to the cost of moving and finding us a new place to live and also will help us pay for his treatment until we can get his insurance figured out. Anything helps. Thank you.
