Jada really help during Jada's fight with cancer
Nyeem has been a twinkle in our eyes since he was born. Nyeem has bought so much joy into our lives. He completed our family. He was the little boy we always wanted and needed. And not only did we need him, he needed us. He instantly gained two sisters that love him very much and a father figure that loves him even more.
It started out with weekend visits and then weekend visit ended up being permanent stay at four months old. He was always a very playful little boy. When Nyeem was three years old he was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoma Leukemia). November 29, 2013 is a day I will never forget. It changed my life forever.
Nyeem doctor and hospital schedule was overwhelming. After Nyeem was diagnosed we stayed in the hospital for two full weeks. Then Nyeem was hospitalized every few weeks for the next six months. In and out of hostipals was our norm for the next few years.
During this time, I step away from work because Nyeem needed be more than ever. Nyeem has been in remission since July 16, 2016. It was a long and rough 2 1/2 years. I (we) thank God every day many times a day for his Grace and Mercy of keeping him and giving us the strength and faith to hold on.
Everyone in the family pitched in to help. My oldest daughter came home from college for a semester. I couldn’t afford to pay her college expenses. Her help at home was a huge help. Financially we are still not where we were or where I would like to be. We lost a few material things. But nothing can replace the life of my little love bug. He means the world to me (us).
With sincere appreciation and gratefulness, I want to say THANK YOU THANK YOU AND THANK YOU for you and your organization helping my family have a GREAT CHRISTMAS. Gratitude lives and grows in my heart knowing the smiles that you are going to put a smile on my babies faces and joy in their hearts that I cannot thank you enough for your being an ANGEL to me and my family. May God continue to bless you and your family.
