Blaise is stronger than cancer! Friends & family unite to financially help Blaise & his family through this trying time.

One of the most feared words to have to own: Cancer. What is worse? When it invades your darling three year old boy. Blaise is one of my very favorite little people on this planet. With an easy dimpled smile, sweet voice, and pure and energetic love for life, it is hard not to fall in love with him. It was simply devastating to hear that Blaise had been diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia in September. His parents, Maggie and Jason Neil, were glued to his side up at Doernbecher Children's Hospital at OHSU in Portland while Blaise underwent multiple labs and transfusions, and chemotherapy was initiated. Financial concerns were the last thing on Maggie and Jason's mind as they fought alongside their son. As friends, we are able to step back and recognize the financial hardship that can occur alongside cancer. I think we all know someone who has struggled with the outstanding medical bills that so cruelly accompany a medical condition that is hard enough to handle by itself. (Insert political healthcare related concerns HERE - no one should have to fear losing everything while they are at risk of losing someone they love). I invite you to donate what you can - 10 dollars - 100 dollars - anything helps. Together we can raise the money to help the Neil family focus on supporting their son Blaise, rather than worry about how they will pay for medical bills, gas for their twice weekly visits to Portland for weeks to come, or rent. No donation is too small. Let's come together as a community for this bright and deserving young boy who has so much to offer this world! With all of my love, Brooke.
