Caring for A.J.

Andrew Joseph Bay age 2 1/2 was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).   He is currently undergoing aggressive therapy. He receives chemo every week and is taking four medications daily and five on the weekends. His treatment will continue over the next three years.

Each day is so hard on him. He cannot go out an play like other kids as he has no immune system because of the treatment. He also has very little stamina. He sleeps a lot and does not have a huge appetite. Although popcorn and slurpees are his favorite.

A website has been set up to help the family as the medical care costs are beyond what the family can handle.  The family really needs financial support as their ability to work is diminished because A.J. has continual have medical appointments as well as has to be watched closely 24 hrs a day. Also, the costs of the medications is above what the insurance company will cover. Please if you can donate any amount to help him and his family through this difficult time it would be greatly appreciated.  Getting ready to eat his popcorn AJ and daddy
