Support Baby Warrior Jream Pratt’s Fight Against Brain Cancer.
This GoFundMe story is about my sister Janna Pratt’s newborn daughter Jream. But first I’d like to introduce Jream’s mommy, Janna who has been giving all her strength to support her little warrior’s battle against Brain Cancer.
Janna is a member of the George Gordon First Nation of Saskatchewan who currently resides in Regina; has been a part of the Sasktel family for 14 years; a very active labour activist through her union Unifor; the first First Nations woman to hold a black belt in Judo and most importantly a mom to 11 year old Jamel “Buck”, newborn Jream and has been a foster parent to Joseph and Joe'zeah. If you know Janna, you’d describe her as an outgoing woman and maybe a little bubbly at times. Janna is not so bubbly of late as she has had to put on the bravest of faces for her little baby warrior, Jream. Janna told me that she won’t cry in front Jream. And, I understand because that is the kind of person and mother she is, strong and caring. She wants to make sure Jream feels safe and comfortable as much as possible during this very difficult battle with what we now know is brain cancer.
Janna welcomed baby warrior, Jream Virginia Morley Pratt into this world on August 18, 2018. She was able to enjoy the first few days following Jream's birth in bliss, focusing on being a new mom before becaming concerned with a buldging fontanelle on top of Jream’s head. Janna took her to the doctor and was given the worst news a mother could hear: that her new born daughter was born with a brain tumor. That very day that the diagnosis was made Janna and baby Jream were airlifted from Regina to Saskatoon’s Royal University Hospital. And, just ten days after being born Jream underwent seven hours of brain surgery to remove the tumor.
As I am writing this, its been a couple weeks of healing since the surgery and that is what we prayed would be the end of the journey. Unfortunately, the biopsy of the tumor that was removed tested positive as cancerous. As a result baby Jream now has another treacherous stretch of road ahead of her as she will have to undergo chemotherapy. Poor baby is not even a month old and she had endured a lifetime of pain. No child or mother should have to face this, but Jream and her mommy Janna are putting up a darn good fight. Janna has to be forced away from Jream’s hospital room to take care of herself.
Janna is a single mother, and both our parents passed so I know her support is strong but limited. Therefore, she and Baby Warrior Jream could use your prayers and support more than ever. Please if you could kindly see that my sister and neice are in need of your help, it would mean the world to me and them for you to donate!
Every cent will be used for the family to travel to Sasktoon to support Jream and Janna during treatments and their needs to get them through this. It will also be used to explore additional treatments... And hopefully once this journey is over, whatver is left for an RREP for Jream.
