Jaxon's Journey - fighting cancer for the 2nd time
JAXON is a gorgeous 6 year old boy from Adelaide, South Australia.
First Diagnosed 6th September 2017
“Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma” Stage 3
Jaxon was on maintenance treatment while fighting Lymphoblastic Lymphoma - we all lived in hope he was on the road to remission and to a full recovery, after enduring more than 12 months of high risk chemo therapy treatment between 2017-2018 and then to Maintenance chemo from late 2018.
Jaxon started school early 2019 .... continuing through maintenance chemo and monthly tests, it was pure delight seeing our superhero start to live a life of some normality that he deserved, interacting with his little school friends and generally being well to enjoy the most out of life.
In May 2019 - investigations started after Jaxon was complaining of sore legs, hips and ankles.
Tests results came to light on 11 June 2019 - the oncologists advised that’s Jaxon’s bone marrow is full of cancer....
He now has Leukemia.
Immediately admitted to hospital and starting treatment.
Pure devastating !
Jaxon now starts a new intense treatment plan. He is fighting Cancer for the second time around.
Jaxon’s oncologists have told
us that only 1 child every 4 years relapses during cancer maintenance treatment ... Jaxon is that 1!!!
Jaxon’s parents lives are completely ON HOLD while they carry their 5 year old son through the biggest battle of his life.
Jaxon needs to fight cancer AGAIN, but even harder this time.....
Confirmed by the oncologists Jaxon’s treatment plan will definitely include a Stem Cell Transplant around October 2019 they will need to travel to Sydney to undertake - in hope for a cure.
They are searching the international bone marrow donor list right now for match - as his immediate family aren’t a match...
They are expected to live in Sydney between the hospital and Ronald McDonald House for approximately 6-9 months while Jaxon receives this transplant and recovers strong enough to travel back home to Adelaide.
No one prepares for this - emotionally, physically or financially.
It’s been one heck of a battle and it’s still far from over.....
This beautiful family need our help
Jaxon and his little 3yo brother deserve what every child does in this world does , a healthy, happy life....
Victoria and Dimi need to keep strong for one another and to fight with Jaxon through the biggest battle of his life.
How do they go on and continue with everyday life expenses .... financial stress is the last thing they should feel at this time.
I’ve started this new campaign in hope the world can share and provide that little
bit of support that will ease the pain of worry .. the worry of how they will have any form of income for even just groceries, everyday bills, their rent or petrol in the coming year ... in between carrying Jaxon to and from hospital for treatment
Thank you you so much for your help and support
