The family and friends of Selah Jones are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Leukemia. Please show your support.

Selah is a beautiful gift from God, she is a 4 year old Down Syndrome angel. On July 26th, 2012, Selah was admitted to the hospital for what we hoped was a simple infection in the blood, soon to be told it was Leukemia. But still hoping Prayer would be the answer, her Blast level dropped from .05 to .01 so we were hopeful that God was intervening and even the Doctor was hopeful, But after further testing the next day, levels had not decreased. So after much prayer and exhaustive testing, her levels went up and down over the next few days giving hope and dashing hope. The Doctors said if we didn't act now, the Leukemia could spread fast and the end could be near. Finally the decision had to be made to allow Chemo treatments to begin. After the first treatment, her body when into tremors, non stop vomiting, and fevers. So another chemo was administered. She has been reacting a little better to the new Chemo treatments and has been able to go outside and have picnics on the hospital grounds.

We have been living at the hospital day and night with our little girl who does not understand what is happening to her and why she can't go home to her happy place.
Most of the time she has been under strict sanitized conditions which limits the visitors allowed to come and visit her in order to keep the germs and sickness away while her immune system is being broken down and built back up.

As you can understand this unexpected family crisis wil take quite a toll on us, emotionally and financially, as we have not been able to work and bring in an income to cover our ordinary expenses like mortgage and everyday expenses, Selah is also not insured due to her Down Syndrome. We do not know at this point if any organizations will be available to help us with the astronomical bills that we encounter along the way including extra medical, alternative medical, nanny services and the unknown!

We are at the very beginning of this process, and the love and support that we have been shown so far has been a huge blessing for our family! God always shines!

We know Selah has an army of pray warriors out there and would love to hear from you, please send any cards or well wishes to Selah Jones c/o Jeff and Brenda Jones, 8813 Beech Daly Rd, Taylor Mi 48180

All of your generous contribuitions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated.

Thank you all SO much!!! God Bless you!
Jeff and Brenda Jones and Family
