Alex's fight against cancer fund

$23,211 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 382 people in 11 months
Created December 14, 2017
Alex Jaramillo, at the age of 22, is fighting a rare disease known as Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm. This disease is a type of leukemia that has a history of affecting the elderly and less than 600 cases nationwide. Currently, we're figuring out how to help Alex get to and stay in Houston while going through treatments. It is because of this we need whatever help you can offer, as we need these funds immediately due to the urgency at which we need to get Alex going through treatment. These funds will go towards Alex's treatments, his stay over there and any support that Alex needs to help him fight off this disease. To learn more about blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm follow this link.

We want to take the time to thank everyone for their support up to this point because we have good news! Although Alex wasn't accepted at MD Anderson, we paid for the consultation at the City of Hope in California and they admitted him with a plan to start treatments tomorrow (this update went out later than planned). The City of Hope is absolutely amazing and we're incredibly grateful for their help and how they saw the urgency for Alex to be seen. We ask now more than ever for your prayers and support as Alex's fight starts in earnest.

Hi this is Alex and I want to thank everyone for all of their support it’s been helping tremendously! I am currently still in California. On June 1st I was able to get my transplant and my donor ended up being my my brother Chris! I finished my treatment and it went well. I’m currently still recovering and working on getting my strength back due to losing a lot of weight and side effects from the chemo and radiation. All in all I am doing much better. I appreciate any support or donations as living in Cali is pretty expensive and the medications I need that insurance won’t cover. Thank you again so much! I give all my glory to God!
My face cleared up and my marks are gone

I first want to thank everyone that has been help supporting me and working very hard sharing my story, it is such a blessing to have all the friends and family I have backing me up. I love all of you ❤️ as many of you might not know but this disease has caused my face to bruise pretty bad and my bones to ache. Although I am experiencing this pain I am still fighting and pushing myself each day to stay fit regardless of the pain. Thank you all again so much!
Thank you everyone! ❤️
