John Suraci Fund
John Suraci was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukemia. Adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. This type of cancer usually gets worse quickly if it is not treated.
He is already starting Chemotherapy treatment but as we know, medical bills are very expensive in New York City.
I received a text from DJ Spin (Dallas) who suggested to start this page for our fellow DJ/Producer, Record Industry exec, and friend. We figured the On-Air Mixshow Facebook community would be the appropriate place for this.
Any amount will help and go along way for John Suraci and his family during this time. We all have faith and love that you will get through this John. Thank you everyone for your time, prayers, and support.
All I want to say is THANK YOU GOD! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! And all the great doctors and nurses I've had along this journey as well. Preliminary bone marrow biopsy report: No evidence of disease. Stem cell report : 100% percent donor all 1 cord. I can't even speak right now I am so overwhelmed. Someone said to me one time during all this "don't worry, God knows your name" and apparently they were right. This is nothing short of a miracle. And I know it's because of everyone praying for me. God really was listening. So thank you all for your prayers. Please keep them coming as I still have a long road ahead of me. But this is a great start. Love you all. Thanks for standing by me and keeping me strong with your love and prayers and support. Please keep the prayers coming. Thank you. Xoxo
So today's the big day. My new Re-Birthday. Double cord blood transplant about to be my own. Please say an extra prayer for me today. Thank you all so much for all the love, prayers and support. I really do love you guys. Oh, and since it is my birthday you should probably be buying me gifts too. Lol
See you soon. XoXo - J
I know it's been a minute but forgive me as I've been going through a lot of tests to make sure I can have a stem cell transplant. Well, today is the day I'm being admitted into Memorial Sloan Kettering here in NYC. I'm getting 7 days of chemo and radiation and then the transplant itself with umbilical cord blood is next Wednesday. They call that my re-birth day in this world. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty friggin terrified but I know I'm in good hands as most of you know Sloan is among the best cancer hospitals in the world. I'm going to have a really long road ahead of me but as a dear friend of mine who went through it herself said "It won't be easy but it will be worth it". I believe her because I want to live so badly. There is still so much I want to do and see, so much to accomplish and I'm going to do just that.
And to all my mix show family out there I will be back to slinging records before you know it. Consider this a reprieve from my daily harassment of berating you to "play my shit"
For now I humbly ask that you please keep me in your prayers every day because without a doubt in my heart, that is what has gotten to this point. Someone recently said to me "Don't worry, God knows your name". It really made stop and think of how lucky I am to have so many wonderful people praying for me. So thank you all for that.
Okay, gotta run. I'm allowed one ginger ale all day before my first procedure today so I'm gonna go savor it. Lol.
Love you all
Right now I'm praising God for the good news today. I'm currently in remission. The 14 day test was clean. Gotta repeat to make sure still in remission at day 28. And gotta get my blood levels up. Right now my body still not making any cells and I'm still getting fevers so they are sending me for a CT Scan of my chest later and switching my antibiotics. I still get a blood transfusion everyday. They won't let me walk out of here until I can make my own blood and immunity. Then it's off to Sloane for me for the big fight aka the stem cell transplant. If all goes well I wil be there for approx 3-4 months. It's a doozy. But it would appear it's my best shot at keeping this away. So I still need all your prayers. Not out of the woods yet. But at least I get to fight another day right now so I'm grateful for that. Please keep praying and thank you again for everything!!
