Hi my name is James Drane jr. I was born with a rare brain cancer I’ve been fighting my whole life ( 5years). I’m still fighting and I refuse to give up. I love to soothe others fears and anxiety over my own illness wth my radiant laughter. 
I have undergone multiple surgeries and chemotherapy to remove and kill these cancerous tumors. Due to the tumors continuous growth in my brain, and on my spine I am now partially paralyzed as my right side doesn’t work. I’ve since been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. My doctors have recommended my mommy places me in hospice care. She refuses to give up on me or finding me a cure. Every morning I wake up I’m happy despite the tremendous pain that I’m in sometimes. 

I love  Christmas. All I want for Christmas is “Christmas”. No toys just snow, Christmas lights, happy people and most importantly Santa Claus.”  

The FDA has just approved a new medicine for Adults and pediatric patients called VITRAKVI, which attacks and kills cancerous tumors. However, each treatment cost $11,000 a month for the pediatric syrup, and $393,600 a year. My mom hasn’t been able to work due to me being sick and in the hospital. Medicaid has exhausted as they don’t want to continue to pay for my treatments. GOD has delivered a cure for me in the form of a new FDA approved VITRAKVI medicine. My family lacks the financial means I’m which to pay for my treatment. 

I’m asking everyone to pledge $1 donation each so that we can reach our goal of $393,600 so I can receive treatment. Every child deserves the opportunity to experience the little things in life like chasing butterflies and birds. 
We will continue to update you guys on James’s journey. GOD bless each and everyone of you. And thank you


Hi my name is James I’m 4 years old. I love life and everyone I encounter. I have a personality that will/can brighten a room. Everyone who meets me loves me. I’m a charmer I love to be a gentalmen. I’m in pre-k and I absolutely love school and my classmates. My mommy cares for me all by herself no help. She’s such a strong woman that’s where I get my strength from. I was diagnosed in October of 2014 with stage 3 brain cancer ( chloride plexus carsonomia)
Which is a very aggressive cancer. There is no know cure if we listen to my doctors. My mom has done extensive research trying to find a way to heal me and give me a chance at a normal healthy life. This year was my first year being able to experience Halloween like the rest of the kids my age. Even if it was Halloween yet. I was really happy being Spider-Man. On 10-31-2017 I underwent my fourth brain surgery to remove a tumor. I just want to ride my bikes and go to school. I want to live and be a normal healthy boy. Can you guys please help my mom save my life. I have a testimony that I know one day will heal and help another that’s in my shoes.



Thank you for taking the time to read my story even if you can’t help financially.
Love. James

Today it saddens me to say our dear sweet angel gained his wings on 4/7/2019 @ 11:37 pm. He was surrounded by love. I sang to him until he took his last breath. He wasn’t in any pain. Thank you all for your continuous support and love. James was truly and angel. Let his smile brighten your gloomy days. Let his laughter ring in your ears like music. More importantly pray for my strength because this was a mighty blow to my heart. Thank you all love
Lauren&james
Forever and always ❤️

Hello friends. We are still in the fight against cancer. James cancer has spread. He has a 9cm tumor on the left side of his brain as well as two additional tumors a 5cm tumor on the right side of his brain, 4cm tumor on the lower spine. He’s in a lot of pain. Somehow James still finds way to smile and lend a helping hand. Although the massive tumor on the left side of the brain has caused him to lose the motor function of his right arm and leg. We want to raise funds to help our friends and families in the oncology unit. So many people love James and we want to spread love. Help James share smiles.
