Help Jelessa Beat Leukemia

$5,193 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 99 people in 9 months
Created March 17, 2018
On March 10, 2018, Jelessa was diagnosed with AML, a fast growing leukemia. She is seeking alternative treatments, like intravenous high dose Vitamin C and Oxygen Therapies. She also wants to boost her immune system by doing a Detox and taking natural supplements; however, none of these treatments are covered by her health insurance. These therapies are  important because they will strengthen her body’s ability to fight the disease, in case she has to do Chemotherapy. Please help us raise the money that Jelessa needs to do these treatments so that she can beat Leukemia!

Friends, we received this update from Jelessa's mom and wanted to share it with all of you. Please pray for their family and if you are able to contribute financially, it will be a huge blessing! Let's help Jelessa beat Leukemia!!!

We've recently received Jelessa’s test results and we have great news.

Her platelets are now climbing on their own. On Monday they were at 29. They climbed up to 33 on Wednesday night and they are now at 40. Still a long ways to go but we're definitely heading in the right direction.

Her hemoglobin is stable and climbing slowly.

Her blasts are down to 22%.

She has had one chemo treatment at 7.5% and her blood levels went up a notch and her platelets went up several notches, so that's great!!

She has completed 11 weeks of treatment and potentially needs another 9 more. We have exhausted the funds that friends and family raised, and we're now paying for her treatments out of pocket again.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to help Jelessa Beat Leukemia! Here is an update. She had blood-work done and we are happy to report that her white blood cell count is down. Her hemoglobin is holding steady; It's low, but not declining. Jelessa's mom, who is now her full time caregiver and medical advocate, has exhausted all of her leave time and is currently on LWOP (Leave Without Pay) until Jelessa's recovery. So, please continue to help us raise funds to assist them with their medical expenses. We appreciate all that you have done and continue to do for Jelessa!
