The Family of 3-year-old Toni Velasquez need your help to cover medical costs and expenses.

In March 2012 Toni was diagnosed with Aplastic anemia which occurs when the bone marrow produces too few of all types of blood cells. Back in March Toni became very whiney, her cheeks were quite frequently flushed, she would have fever and quite often seemed very lathargic. This was very worrisome and a huge change in the energectic fun loving toddler that we've become accustomed to. We took her to the hospital thinking she had a bad virus or walking pnuemonia and after a few weeks and many tests we were informed of this devasting diagnosis. Since finding out of this diagnosis earlier this year our family has been through so much, we have remained strong for this 3-year-old princess but being a child of a single mom is wearing thing of family resources. And present its difficult for Toni's mom to work with her needing to be by her side almost 24/7. There is hope for Toni and her health and with the help of others we will be able to get her proper treatment as she is unisured and the states medicaid program only covers a very small protion of basic procedures. Blood transfusions and bone marrow transplants can give Toni a chance to be the vibrant toddler she once was. God bless you all for taking the time out to read our story and even considering helping Toni in this time of need. If you wish to send a check you can do do in Toni's name to: Toni Velasquez 877 Bruckner Blvd Bronx, New York 10459 With Thanks and Love: Brigette Hunter Toni London Velasquez & Family
