Help Elijah kick cancer in the face

$2,525 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 6 months

My son, Elijah was diagnosed in May of 2014 with Pre-B ALL (leukemia) at the age of 13.
He has gone through extensive treatments, and endured endless complications. He was due to complete treatment September of this year. Unfortunately, on May 24, 2017, we found out the cancer has relapsed and this time it is in his spinal fluid. He immediately started a new treatment that will last at least two years more. Elijah has spent about 100 of the last 120 days in the hospital. Some of those days are scheduled chemo treatments, but most of that time is due to complications. The most recent issue is an abscess in his leg that needed surgery. He is now unable to walk on his left leg and will have to be on antibiotics for several weeks. I spend most of the days and nights with Elijah in the hospital, and when he is home, I am his sole caretaker. I am a single mother with three other boys. I have a fiancee who works very hard to help as much as he can.  We have done our best and recieved help from friends and family, but it is impossible to keep up with bills when I am unable to work. I am asking for help for my bills, medications, co-pays, gas, and food expenses.  I appreciate anything that is given. If anyone would like to help without giving money, please go donate blood or platelets at any local United Blood Services. There is a huge shortage of blood products right now that has directly affected Elijah. Anything is helpful. Thank you!

Day 8 for this admission. He has a rare blood infection and an infection in his lungs. They have no clue what the cause is. They've already tested for everything they can think if and now looking at TB again even thougg that test was negative. He's worried that he'll be inpatient for Christmas. I hope not. He has needed blood almost daily. No answers, so only hope and prayers that he'll get better.

Another hurdle. Elijah is in the hospital yet again. He's getting a lot of blood and platelets. He needs oxygen, he has a nasty cough, and doctors aren't sure what's going on with him. Prayers, please! Blood banks are low on blood products, , so if anyone can donate blood, please help!

He's normally smiling. These frequent hospital stays are really getting to his head. :/
Still fighting!
