Praying for Deja

This campaign was created to help my cousin's family financially during this extremely difficult time when her daughter, Deja, is in the ICU fighting for her life against this ugly disease known as leukemia.

Deja is a beautiful, sweet, strong 9 year old little girl who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on Jan 23, 2010. She has had multiple rounds of chemo with cranial and full body radiation, a bone marrow transplant, and car T cell therapy in Philadelphia. She had been in remission for the last 2 years.

Unfortunately earlier this week, they found Deja experiencing stroke-like symptoms causing paralysis on the left side of her body. After further testing at the hospital they received the news that the leukemia had relapsed again.

She has began intrathecial chemo and the family is waiting to hear from the doctors what her long term options will be. Her mother, Melissa Roberts (a single mom), will be with her sweet girl and won't be able to work during this time. She has two brothers at home who still need to be provided for as well. This an extremely difficult time for this family but they know God is in control and are praying and hoping to beat this leukemia once and for all!

If you could give anything to this family in need it would be so greatly appreciated!
