Help Mahlon “Kick Leukemia’s Butt"
We ask for thoughts, prayers, and/or donations to help the family with funeral arrangements and other expenses. #TeamMahlon #StrongerTogether
Mahlon is an 12-year-old boy who loves to play on Minecraft, build with Legos, anything scientific, reading, and dreams of playing soccer one day. Mahlon is a strong, brilliant young boy who has had many challenges this past year to say the least. His mother, Alaina, suddenly passed away in June, he moved from Houston to Nederland to live with his Nana & Pappy (and young uncle), and he switched schools…all while learning to cope with the loss of his mother.
Mahlon was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on October 5, 2015 after battling several weeks of fever, a rash, and declining health that the doctors were unable to find a cause for. After his fever spiked agressivley, he was sent to the ER and life-flighted to Texas Childeren’s Hostpital in Houston. As his health declined, he still brings a smile and laugh to the face of everyone he meets.Mahlon recieved intense chemotherapy treatment starting Friday, October 9th, 2015. Mahlon has battled leukemia for over a year now, had a 5 rounds of chemotherapy, two nasal fungal surgeries, a bone marrow transplant, eleven bone marrow biopsies, and three donor lymphoyte infusions, and still battles on! Mahlon was able to come home in July 2016 leukemia free and visits Texas Children's Bone Marrow Transplant Unit weekly. He has held strong at 90% donor cells and needs to reach 100% donor to be able to stay leukemia free!
This fund has been set up to help raise money to support Mahlon and his family with medical and travel expenses required for his treatment.
Please consider supporting Mahlon through this battle with cancer and alleviate a small portion of the financial burden at this difficult time. Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated.
John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”✝️
