Jorge (16) is an amazing, loved and caring teenager he is in 10th grade in Borah High School in Boise. He was diagnosed back in June 2017 with Osteosarcoma in the right tibia following an intensive chemotherapy regimen (MAP) and a Limb Salvage surgery in September 2017, finishing in February 2018. Like many of the childrens and teens with LLS he has lost his ability to run, jump, and play like a normal teenager but always will receive you with a smile.
When we thought he was finished with this horrible cancer like is Osteosarcoma "THE BEAST" we listened for a second time in June of this year that he relapse, our #JorgeStrong had a tracheotomy to remove the Osteosarcoma nodules in his lungs. Sadly in October 22nd Jorge's oncologist said to us that Jorge relapse for a third time, they found a tumor in his chest wall of 7cm invading his diafragm (what make the surgery really difficult) and 3 little nodules in his lungs.
Having Jorge had to many side effects caused by the chemotherapy (MAP) : cardiomyopathy, Loss hearing and damage in the kidneys, the doctors need to be careful with the treatments he need to follow , the next steps are start a trial or chemo next week. If this dont work in the next 6 weeks we need to travel and look for another specialist.
We are a family of 4, Jorge have and adorable and little advocate in her sister Dulcemaria (4) and lots of friends around us trying always to help, so please we ask you to donate and share this account the most that you can. We believe that with God's favor we will find our miracle for Jorge, please have Jorge and us in your prayers and if you know about Prayers Chain add us.
We are creating this account and asking for your help because we have really struggled financially since Jorge's first diagnosis in June 2017 because the only one who is working is dad, that way mom can take care of Jorge. but sometimes we need take days off because surgeries, scans, appointments that we all want to be present, and that reduce our budget, we always try to save and we never before asked for help for us but we now need help to buy some stuff that Jorge needs and have him the more comfortable and happy we can.
Thanks for the love.
