My Story

On December 9th, our son Josiah, affectionately known as Jojo, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He is a bright 5 year old kindergartener with an entertaining personality. He has been our "Tough Guy" enduring multiple procedures and chemotherapy treatments. After a 12 day hospital stay, Jojo was released from the hospital just in time to be home for Christmas! We know our God to be a healer, on Jan 12, Our wonderful doctors at Children's Hospital notified us that Jojo is in remission after 4 weeks of aggressive chemo. This is a positive step on his Road to Recovery. Many have inquired about our needs and if you are willing, please donate. Thank you for your support via continued prayers, calls, visits and messages. Jojo will be on an intensive 3 year treatment plan, and these funds will assist our family along this Journey. The proceeds will help cover medical expenses such as prescriptions, medical bills, and weekly hospital visits. #KeepPrayingforJojo
