Verity’s leukemia support fund

$4,960 of $45,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 5 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!

Here is an updated look at what we are up against. If you look at the date you can see this is from just one visit, not an overnight stay or multiple visits.

Update time! It has been a fast month for us and quite fun as we had a two and a half week break from IV chemo which allowed us to relax a bit. But today it’s back to the grind with IV chemo, a lumbar puncture and special training for mommy on how to give chemo at home over the next four days. Verity’s port will be left accessed today and I will have to administer chemo at “home” (Miss V and I will stay in the Portland area) as well as start a new at home oral medication. Over all Verity and I will be away from home for just over a week during this part to make sure that we have proper care in case of an emergency or the need for a blood transfusion. Of course this puts even more of a strain on our finances and physical and emotional well-being as David and I navigate and plan for transportation, care for Merit and Thor (the dog) while David is at work, healthy and “normal” food for Verity and I while we are away and of course adds to cabin fever as the current measles outbreak makes it dangerous to take Verity anywhere. As for Verity, she is amazing, I never could have imagined how strong and resilient she could be; but here she is killing it and doing all this crazy with a smile, without losing her personality and still keeping us on our toes by just being a “normal” two year old.

Please share our story and pray for us these next 8 days.

Verity is now in remission!!!! She is doing so very well and has entered what is called, delayed intensification; this is an 8-12 week phase that is meant to flush out any mutations. During this phase we will be traveling to OHSU every week and at one point Verity and Atina will stay in the area for a few days while Verity has her port accessed for chemo administration at home.

As we start the new year, we also start a new phase of treatment for Verity. This phase is called delayed intensification, we will once again have chemo every week and medication at home for the next month or so. Today Verity has another lumbar puncture with chemo; hopefully she will pass this part with good results and we can get her next schedule of treatments. Please continue to pray for us, especially on how we work out travel to and from Portland every week.

Our hearts are full from all your support and love, thank you!
Christmas morning smiles
