I'm Down to kick Cancer's Butt!!
Hi, my name is Jesus and I'm one of those kids that have that x-extra chromosome you know they call it Down Syndrome. I think they should call it Up Syndrome!!! But whatever. I also have leukemia and I have been receiving treatments at Children's Hosp. In El Paso. I have to be there a lot and that has made it impossible for my mom to keep working. We struggle but she is tough (that's where I get it) Candlelighters is a big help as are my family but my mommy could use more help. So my Uncle set up this page for me. I'm asking for anything that you can contribute. Please also keep Candlelighters in mind if you have items that you no longer need, that also helps us. Thank you in advance for your contributions. Well like I said I'm Down, I'm DOWN to kick Cancers Butt!!!! https://www.kvia.com/news/top-stories/candlelighters-of-el-paso-helps-families-with-children-diagnosed-with-cancer/793866370://www.kvia.com/news/top-stories/candlelighters-of-el-paso-helps-families-with-children-diagnosed-with-cancer/793866370+ Read More
Just a update or info, the reason for this fundraiser is because with Jesus having to get chemo and radiation among so many other issues, he is unable to attend school and at times is admitted to the hospital for weeks. Because of him being a Down child his devolpement at this time is not where he can be left there on his own. This has made it impossible for my sister Maria (Suky) to continue to report to work. Suky is a 23 year employee of EPCC where she has assisted thousands of veterans with registering and attending college. Suky is not one to ask and is selling menudo on the weekends that she can, to help make ends meet. She is a worker. Thank you all for the support. Know that she and the family are extremly grateful. Please continue to share . Thank You.
Along with everything Jesus my nephew has been going thru. Today he was diagnosed with scoliosis. Yet He continues to smile even when in pain and puts a smile on the faces of everyone around him. Please keep him in your prayers and please share his page.
