Javier's Journey to Recovery

$5,642 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 76 people in 51 months
Javier Martinez, my nephew, is a 10 year old boy from the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas.  He was recently diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called  Ewing's Sarcoma Metastatic.  Only 200 people nationwide are diagnosed with this cancer each year.  Javier and his family are going through an unimaginable journey that involves extensive medical treatment to cure him of this illness.   It is their hope that Javier will fully recover and return to doing the things he likes best like riding his bike, swimming, and hanging out with friends.  Javier is a fifth grade student at San Carlos elementary (Edinburg, TX school district).  It is for this reason that Javier and his family desparately need your prayers and genorosity to get him well.  Please find it in your hearts to support in any way, no matter how small to make Javier's journey to recovery a reality.  God bless you many times over for your generosity and love of fellow being.

Javier is hanging in there he has not qualified for the past 4 weeks, his numbers are not to par for him to receive chemo....its been 6 weeks since h has received chemo and he only needs 2 more rounds and he is done. Scans should be done after then if scans show hot spots on vertebrae #12, hips and bone marrow he will need to go to Houston to receive proton radiation which is more targeted to the area needed. We appreciate all donations and prayers in this time of need. God bless you.

Several weeks have passed since we initially posted Javier's Journey to Recovery. Javi, as we call him, has endured several chemo treatments to combat his cancer. Javi and his family are very grateful for the generosity of contributions and prayers and the out pouring support. There still is a long road for Javi's recovery and along the way it has taken it's toll but Javi remains strong in spirit and determination. We ask that you keep Javi in your prayers and please find it in your heart to make a contribution no matter how small for Javi's journey to recovery. Scripture tell us, . “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,” Thank you and God bless you.

Here is an update with picture of Javier. His 3rd chemo treatment is today. Here is a note from Joey, Javier's father: Eng version: To all my friends some of you may have heard about what our family is going through. In case you have not please give me one minute of your time and read the following. On May 19th our youngest son 10 year old Javier Armando Martinez was diagnosed with EWINGS SARCOMA a form of cancer that affects mostly boys ages 10yrs old to adolescent. The reason i am posting this is because I know some of you have children around his age. Please be careful with your children. This form of cancer can only be detected after the child has been injured. There is no known test for this. Please be wary about any bump's, bruises that do not go away. Thanks to my vigilant wife and a great P.A.Vicente Bautista at the Edinburg children's hospital one of our early heroes' with a great eye who caught it. Our son Javier has a good chance.. And to my wife's cousin Dr. Rudy Alvarez who without knowing it was a family member was the one that made the initial diagnoses. Thanks to all my family for your support. I LOVE YOU all. Thanks to my wife's family for your support. Friends if you have kids please hug and kiss them tonight. I never thought our family would be going through some thing like this. I ask for your prayers for my son. Thank you and may God bless you

En Espanol: A todos mis amigos algunos de ustedes han oído hablar de lo que nuestra familia está atravesando. En caso de que no haya por favor, dame un minuto de su tiempo y leer lo siguiente. El 19 de mayo nuestro hijo menor de 10 años Javier Armando Martínez fue diagnosticado con el sarcoma de Ewings una forma de cáncer que afecta principalmente a niños de edades comprendidas entre 10 años: edad de la adolescencia. La razón por la que estoy publicando esto es porque sé que algunos de ustedes tienen hijos alrededor de su edad. Tenga cuidado con sus hijos. Esta forma de cáncer sólo se puede detectar después de que el niño ha sido herido. No existe una prueba conocida para esto. Por favor, tenga cuidado acerca de cualquier de fragmentos, moretones que no desaparecen. Gracias a mi esposa vigilante y un gran PAVicente Bautista en el hospital de niños Edinburg uno de nuestros primeros héroes con un gran ojo que lo atrapó. Nuestro hijo Javier tiene una buena oportunidad .. Y para el primo de mi esposa Dr. Rudy Alvarez que sin saber que era un miembro de la familia fue la que hizo que los diagnósticos iniciales. Gracias a toda mi familia por su apoyo. TE AMO todos. Gracias a la familia de mi esposa por su apoyo. Amigos si tienes niños por favor abrazo y los beso esta noche. Nunca pensé que nuestra familia sería ir a través de algo como esto. Les pido sus oraciones por mi hijo. Gracias y que Dios los bendiga
