Help Hannah battle cancer
At 3 years old Hannah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). At this time she went through 27 months of chemotherapy resulting in 10 months of being cancer free.
At age 6 she had a relapse. She had more chemotherapy then recieved a bone marrow transplant. The transplant required her to be in isolation for the following year to protect her against infection and rejection. For 7 years she was in remission!
In June 2016 at age 13 Hannah was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). She spent 3 months at Hasbro Childrens Hospital recieving massive chemotherapy.
Hannah's mother, Debbe, fights this battle with her as a single mother and her sole support. She has not left Hannah's side once spending her nights sleeping in a chair at her bedside. Debbe is a former head start teacher and most recently worked at Hannahs school, all saints academy in middletown RI. Her job has been put on hold as her priority has needed to become her daughters health. Their lives revolve around trips between providence and Boston for treatments and the fight against cancer. Looming over their heads are enormous medical expenses. The mortgage is 4 months behind and they are at risk of losing their home. There house phone has been shut off with other utilities soon to follow. There isn't money to shop for groceries or put gas in the car.
Hannah is now waiting for her second bone marrow transplant. After the transplant Debbe and Hannah will need to spend 3 months in the ronald mcdonald house in boston to be closely monitored. If the transplant is successful she will return home for another year of isolation to prevent rejection and infection.
At the age of 13 Hannah has endured more pain, suffering and struggle there many of us will face in a lifetime. Lets come together as a community to ensure Hannah will have a roof over her head, food to eat and heat until her mother is able to return to work.
She needs us! Lets make this go viral!! Please help and please share. Anything helps.
