Support Kamal Havercombe

Shantell's worst and unimaginable nightmares came true, when she brought Kamal to the doctor, who was complaining of an off and on again fever for a couple of weeks, and  was given the diagnosis of Leukemia.
They started immediately that day on treatment and went hard. They wanted to kick this disease right in the pants!   
After many treatments of chemotherapy, several blood transfusions and much much more, Kamal's body continues to fight everyday to keep a fever down. Doctor's and nurses are working so hard to fight them battle with him. They have had a few scares as well the last couple of weeks that no mother or child should have to go through. 
Shantell works more than one job at times and lives for her two boys, Kamal and Shiloh. 
Not being able to work because of her need to be at Kamal's side for every waking moment, are starting to drown her in the everyday expenses of life, medical and regular bills and groceries. 
This woman has survived so many different circumstances on her own, but this hit so full force and unexpected that everyone was blind sided. 
Shantell does the parent thing all alone. There is no one else or anyone to help with bills. 
I ask that anyone that can find it in their heart to donate what they can, it would give Shantell that much more hope in paying another bill. 

Please help us support Kamal and his mother and lets show them love. Love that can be so hard to feel and see these days, is still out there.
I can feel it....
