Please help us in supporting Peyton Sweeney and Family as Peyton, two years old, goes through Chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.

My two year old niece, Peyton Sweeney, has been in out of the hospital over the last year. What started as a routine physical exam on her first birthday turned into a parents worst nightmare. To look at her she was a perfectly healthy normal toddler, we didn't know there was trouble underlying and would soon change her life, her parents lives, and the lives of her family. Peyton's bloodwork up came back abnormal. Soon she would be making weekly visits to her pediatricians office for countless blood tests. This would continue on for months. Finally Peyton was sent to an oncologist in Chapel Hill, NC. The nightmare got worse than we could ever imagine. You see this two year old child has already received two BMT (Bone Marrow Test), blood work that is never ending, and finally a blood transfusion. The results came back not in Peyton's favor. They have diagnosed her with one of two disease. The diseases are HLH and Myelodysplagia. That brings us to where we are now. The medical bills are starting to pile up, yes there is insurance but they won't pay for everything, and her mom is staying at home to ensure she gets to all her never ending doctors appointments, and her daddy works so hard to provide for them. Peyton, her daddy/mommy, brother, and family has been informed that Peyton will receive Chemotherapy and a Bone Marrow Transplant that will change their lives for the next several years. Mommy will be staying with Peyton at the hospital, but daddy will be commuting back and forth to visit them. This will be very difficult for the family unit. We are seeking help for them. My brother Ryan and his wife Celina are doing the best they can with the situation they have been handed.

The family and friends of Peyton Sweeney are uniting to raise money to help with her journey.This fund is to help with living and medical expenses not covered by insurance.
Please show your support! Thank you so much!
