Last February 25, 2019, my angel of a niece Abigail Reyes was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She is only 5 years old, with so much zest for learning and curiosity for the world. She started school last August 2018, and was already accelerated to first grade. Such a vibrant, beautiful and intelligent child.
Late December 2018, she started having dizzy spells, petechiae, and pain in her bones and joints. Her mother (my sister) immediately consulted her GP and had a series of tests done. CBC, Xrays, lumbar puncture, all bravely endured by our little warrior. Test after test came back positive for what we were dreading. What seemed like a distant illness, something you never think or wish would happen to anyone, befell on our baby girl. As heavy as the news was, we clung to the silver lining that it was caught somewhat early and has not yet spread to her other organs.
As of now, she is in need of funding for her chemotherapy and CNS therapy. Although my sister had some rainy day money saved, most of it was used for the tests and some medication prescribed to Abi early on. The cost of her treatment is severe for a single mother, and I cannot be of much help as I had just graduated and earning only on an entry level salary. It's just my sister, Abi, and I in our lives. I can't bear to think of something happening to our angel who has brightened our lives and inspired us to work so much harder.
We are knocking on your hearts to help us fund our angel's medical expenses and help her get her life back, hopefully one free of her illness and soaring high as she should be. Your prayers and well wishes will be very much appreciated too, and we thank you for your kindness.
This is a developing campaign. Please bear with me as I work on the additional details such as adding photos etc. Please message me if you would like to know more about our baby girl’s condition Thank you so much and please include little Abigail in your prayers.
