My brother Keven was diagnosed with leukimia on January 6th 2017. He has an agressive form of leukimia and needs a bone marrow transplant in order to survive. All funds will go to pay medical bills. We are hoping for his transplant to take place within the next 8 weeks. For everyone who knows Keven, knows that he is one of the most big hearted people on the planet. We love him so much and would love any support you can give. Positive thoughts and prayers are also welcome.

Keven has been in ICU with the flu sense January 1st. He is doing better. They will be moving him to the BMT unit sometime today (January 6th)
If anyone is interested in seeing him we ask that you are not sick and have not been sick for at least 2 days before visiting. You will be asked to wear a gown, gloves and a mask before entering his room. I do not have a room number at this time as he is in transition.
I would like to thank everyone for your generous donations ❤️

I'm not going to update for a while. It's too much of a rollercoaster ride. Last night Keven hallucinated (super rare side affect) due to new medications and ripped out his IV's and nose packs. It's just up and down and allover the place right now. The good news is his lungs are starting to do better and he doesn't need as much oxogen. The antibiotics are taking affect on his bacterial infection in his lungs. Please send prayers and positive thoughts his way. If you visit please be prepared to let him sleep most of the time you are there. Just holding his hand is amazingly comforting to him. He can't talk a lot because it makes him cough but he loves to see people. Thanks for all your amazing support.

Keven is starting to get better every day. He is still very tired so if you choose to visit please keep it short. Do not visit if you are sick.
A big thanks to everyone for your donations!
Good day today.

For some reason I can not manage my account anymore. It hasn't let me for about a week. Anyway I wanted to update everyone. Keven was admitted to ICU yesterday April 22. He is having complications with his lung infection. They have him on a Cpap machine right now to help open up his lungs. It is a machine like the ones they use for sleep apnea. I was up to see him last night and he is doing well,... all things considered. My sister Shawna spent the night with him last night. My parents and my sister and I have been with him on a daily basis. I am happy that he at least got to go to Woodland park for a few nights to be with Elaine. I will most likely leave updates in comments because I can't seem to update another way at this point. This account will end in 10 days so feel free to message me if you have questions or would like updates at any time. Keven can not talk with the breathing apparatus he has right now so text messages would be better. My sister and I can read them to him. Thank you all so much he is going to need this extra cash, love and support.
