Help Elijah kick cancer in the face

$3,120 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 45 people in 14 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!

We have to be in Denver on Monday and stay until Saturday. The insurance will pay for a plane ticket for Elijah and one adult but I have a three year old and a 6 month old, and since they both have to come with us, we have to drive. The insurance doesn't pay for gas so we have to cover that. The CCFNM gave us $160 for gas, so we have to come up woth the rest. We also have to pay for food for the 6 days we are there. We still have all of our regular bills as well as the groceries and normal expenses for the two kids staying home. All of these expenses are extra and unexpected and this is only the first week he has to go. Next time we have to stay for 8 weeks! Any help will be so much appreciated!
