Verity’s Leukemia Fund

$7,685 of $45,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 9 months
My daughter Verity had some very concerning and scary blood tests and she was transferred to OHSU the night of August 23rd and there was shortly diagnosed with leukemia. We have started to prepare for the onslaught of bills, while also trying to keep our finances stable, as Verity and Atina (her mother) have to stay close to the hospital for this first month. We live and David works four hours away from Doernbecher Children’s Hospital where Verity is being treated. The average cost of care is scary high, and on top of that, there are a slough of “hidden costs”, no one can be prepared for this nightmare. Thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support.

There have been a number of people who have expressed interest in helping outside of here. If that is you please contact David via text or call @ ‭(541) 404-9528‬ or myself via text or call @ (541) 404-7096 for how you can do that. Also know there are other ways to help besides financially, once we are home something as simple as a visit, running an errand or picking something up for us is huge!

So as most of you now know we are home! Verity’s ANC counts (immunity numbers) came up to a point where is was safe to be home but no start her meds back up. Her count was 540 and we need a 750+ to start her Chemo medication Bach up here at home. We are taking her for a blood test tomorrow to see if she has improved so that we can move on with her treatment. If her counts do not come up we will be waiting to do more tests in the hopes that more time will help counts come up. Everything at this time is dependent on waiting. While this is all normal for leukemia, it is still a killer in the nerves! Please be sharing and praying that Verity’s counts rise and that she stays fever free! We cannot afford another ambulance ride; which unfortunately is the only safe way to transport Verity when she has a fever.

Well, Verity has developed a runny nose and cough; so she is now under special precautions (nurses/CNAs have to wear protective gear) and can no longer go to the playroom or walk the halls without a mask. Please continue to pray that we can go home soon and that Verity’s cough is a fluke!

We still have no idea when Verity will get to go home. Yesterday we got a bit encouraged by her immunity counts, only to find out this morning that today we have dropped back down in counts to 190 we need 500 or more to be able to go home. Verity has also developed a cough, so far the doctors do not know why all of this is going on other than it can be normal for this stage of treatment and all we can do is ride it out. Thank you for follow our journey so far!

Verity’s immunity count has very slightly come up, which is good but we are still miles away from going home. There has been no growth from her bacteria cultures so we can rule out any kind of infection (YAY)! We are still working on getting her to eat and drink so she can be off of fluids for longer periods of time, but so far she has remained stubborn in that she isn’t hungry or thirsty.
