 VALLEY CENTER, KS
Elloitt Ortega is now on his SECOND battle with cancer. Elliott was first diagnosed with liver cancer when he was just 1 1/2 years old; he is now 4. He was able to receive a liver fairly quick. He had a liver transplant at UCLA. He has had a clean bill of health for the past 2 1/2 years now, however, Elliott and his family were just told a few days ago that he now has Leukemia (AML); the worst form of Leukemia.

Elliott and his family moved to Kansas during Elliott's first battle with cancer where his father, Ray Ortega, was able to get a job. His mother, Jessica Ortega, was not able to work while Elliott was getting further treatment for his new liver. When they were told that Elliott was doing well, Jessica was able to go back to work part time and things at home were going well.

Now, however, Elliott and his family are facing a new challege. This Leukemia is a fast acting and aggressive cancer. Elliott will have to have extensive treatments that will land him in the hospital for weeks at a time. Elliott and his family might have to relocate, temporarily, to Kansas city where Elliott can be better monitored throughout the process. Jessica is no longer going to be able to work and Ray is going to have to take days off. If you would like to help this little boy and his family, please help donate. Anything helps. LET'S HELP ELLIOTT KICK CANCER'S BUTT....AGAIN!

Well, here we are! Elliott has fought a good fight!! He has been a fighter for the past 6 years! Fighting off three types of cancers! Unfortunately, we were told that he has relapsed and there is not much we can do.
A month ago he was 100% donor cells; today he is only 25% donor cells!
His Mother and Father have decided to give him maintenance chemo to keep the cancer at bay for as long as it can!
That being said, the doctors have advised the family to let him enjoy all that he can!
We are asking for your help to raise money so that Elliott and his family can enjoy the rest of his life doing the things he’s always wanted!! Also, the money will be used towards funeral costs. Any little bit helps!!! Thank you!!

This is a terrible thing to go through and I cant imagine having to struggle financially after losing a child.
