Christopher John (CJ for short) is my son.
He is also the bravest 19-year-old that I know. Like many teenagers, he too had big dreams, his is to design space ships to travel the stars. These dreams are now on hold as CJ enters the new year fighting for his life.
CJ was diagnosed with Stage 4 Burkitt's Lymphoma in October 2019. This is an aggressive form of blood cancer that formed a tumor in his abdomen and his chest. He under went chemotherapy and has spent 90 days in hospital since, including 20 days in critical care. CJ has had more than his fair share of pain, needles, drips, nausea, loss of appetite and hair loss.
Shortly after Christmas, we were greeted with grave news. The chemotherapy wasn’t working and the tumors continue to grow. Doctors are saying that a Stem Cell Transplant is his best hope. To begin his treatment, I am seeking to raise $20,000. All the proceeds will go towards saving CJ.
On my birthday last January, I shaved my head for CJ. My birthday wish is that CJ will be well again to pursue his dreams. I will shave my head a hundred times over if it will make this wish of mine true!
Without treatment, CJ's doctors give him only a few weeks to a few months to live. Despite knowing this CJ hasn’t lost his smile and above all, he hasn’t lost his will to fight on.
Join CJ in his fight with cancer!
