Hello ,

My name is Xhavier Isaiah and I am going to be 9 years old Dec. 30. You would say I am an All-star, I love sports, really I do ! I have played T-ball , Soccer, basketball and Football. You won’t believe me when I tell you, but I scored 11 baskets in one game and 6 touchdowns in another. But i don’t like to brag mommy tells me that’s not nice. I also love skateboarding! I am even growing out my hair to donate to sick kids. (But for now it makes me look totally cool!)
But I was told I’d have to take a rest from all of this for a little while. The other day we went to the doctor and he had my mom bring me to the hospital. I am pretty brave but I don’t like hospitals, the nurses are very nice but they have to poke me with needles. I can tell my mommy is sad , so I try even harder to be brave. But they do hurt! Not sure how much longer we will have to be here but I hope I can go home soon!

My name is Danitza and I am proudly the mother of this most amazing little boy !
He always displayed a love for life and being active but lately was not being himself, his color was pale and was napping excessively. We had to take him in to see his Doctor, something just wasn’t right . On December 21st, 2017 we go the news that our little boy had to be admitted to the hospital. We got there as quickly as possible, so many questions running through my mind. More blood work and medical jargon. Finally a diagnosis, Acute undifferentiated Leukemia. My 8 year old son, my Bub, would need to start blood transfusions and need a bone marrow transplant. As if that wasn’t enough “he has to start aggressive chemotherapy immediately”. It took all of me to not roll into a ball and give in to the incredible pain and emptiness I felt. His whole life, from the moment I felt his first kick, I kept him safe, I was his shelter, found ways to make him better, but now there is nothing I can do. I am powerless! I can be brave for him and I am trying. I hope he can’t see the worry in my eyes!

Hello My name is Tuesday,
I am the proud aunt and cousin to these two amazing human beings and I feel lost. You hear about families that have overcame such an illness but you just never think it will happen to you or your family. As a mother myself I can’t imagine this pain and despair. I am sure with everything going on there is no time to think of finances. This is the only way I can think to help, I am not a doctor, I don’t have what Xhavier needs. Doctors are predicting my nephew will have to spend the remainder of 3rd and 4th grade in the hospital. And I too don’t know what else to do, I just have Faith and this request for support ! Every dollar brings some sense of security to a family that is spending the holidays clinging to a reason to believe and be strong!

“When you stand & share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else” • Within the first 3 days of our hospital stay Xhavi has had a bone marrow biopsy, a spinal tap, and a broviac inserted in his chest. He also learned that he has a type of cancer named leukemia and what chemotherapy is. He turned 9 on his 8th day of aggressive chemo. He handled all of the above so maturely and so proud. Today he had to shave his head -he’d been letting his hair grow out in hopes to donate it for a wig for kids with cancer. Today was the first time he cried, not because he was losing his hair but because he wouldn’t be able to donate it anymore. He was terrified and asked Arturo if he would shave his head first. Without hesitation he did and even let Xhavi do it for him. These two humans are my entire world! I may not know why this happened to us, but I do know that we will fight together and beat this! Thank you to everyone who has donated to the account our family has set up for us, for the endless support, prayers, and positive vibes! We love you forever #fuckcancer #xhavistrong
