Eleanor is so close to the end! But her treatment cannot continue without insurance. Help her win this battle against Leukemia!
In the 8 months since then, we have seperated from active duty service in the Air Force, moved across the country, added a baby boy to the family, and experienced the best care imaginable from the amazing staff at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Hollywood, FL. Eleanor was officially diagnosed with Pre-B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. It is one of the most common, most researched, and thankfully, most treatable type of childhood cancer. With the treatment plan they have spent the last 30 years establishing, there is a greater then 90% chance of the leukemia not returning in 5 years.
Eleanor is almost at the end of the intensive phase of this treatment. Within the next month she will go from weekly IV chemotherapy to one visit a month. She will be able to return to 2nd grade, go out to dinner, play with friends, be a regular kid again. Every day we get a little closer to normal. In order to continue receiving treatment, she must have health insurance. The military provides 6 months of insurance to military members after separation. That 6 months has ended.
This year has been a test of will, a test of courage, and a test of faith. We have been physically, emotionally and financially drained. But we have survived. Eleanor knows that no matter what life throws at her, she will be ok. She knows she can beat it because she beat cancer. She knows she is a survivor.
Be an angel for Eleanor. Please help her finish this battle. We have reached the end of our financial resources. We need help paying the mounting medical bills, travel expenses, and, most importantly, health care premiums.
With everything we have, we thank you for your support.
Eleanor, Katie (Momma), Travis (Daddy)
