Kristina's Birthday Wish 4 Idalya!!

On October 15th I will be celebrating my 40th Birthday & to celebrate this special birthday, I have an extra special Birthday Wish! I am sharing my birthday with Idalya Rae Estevez. <3 Idalya is my friend's beautiful babygirl recently diagnosed with Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In lieu of birthday cards and gifts, I would like my family and friends to donate $40 to "Idalya's Fund to Fight Cancer". (101 of YOU could easily help me reach my goal!!) ......~*My Birthday Wish*~...... To raise $4040.00 toward Idalya's medical expenses!! Exerpt from "Idalya's Fund to Fight Cancer" ALL is a form of leukemia, or cancer of the white blood cells, (white blood cells are responsible for protecting the body against infectious disease and foreigh materials.) When a child has leukemia, large numbers of abnormal white blood cells are produced in our bone marrow. These abnormal white blood cells crowd the bone marrow and flood the bloodstream, unfortunately these cells cannot perform their proper role of protecting the body against disease because they are defective. As leukemia progresses, the cancer interferes with the body's production of other types of blood cells and platelets. Because of this, Idalya is anemic and requires frequent blood transfusions, she also has almost no immunity which makes her risk for infection huge. Idalya's family has very limited insurance, and they are forced to pay for her medication out of pocket. (Idalya is on quite a fews meds, some taken multiple times a day) We are trying to get as many people involved to help with words of encouragement, prayer, and financial help. 100% of all donations go directly to Idalya's medical expenses. If you have any questions or have a suggestion as to how we can set up a fundraiser or collect donations, please feel free to email Kristen directly at LLRAIN18@aol.com or call her (954)547-4648.
