McKenzie's Story

To the family/Individual who has chosen to help bless us this Christmas, we thank you and you are greatly appreciated. Brian Jr is our first child together. He has an older brother and two younger sisters. We call him JuJu. So juju had a heart transplant at 5 months old and later was diagnosed with post transplant lymphoma disease ( ptld). Not long after that he was diagnosed with congenital kidney disease and had a kidney removed. He is now seeing multiple doctors and is always closely watched. He has many other diagnosis related to ptld. Recently we found out his younger sister has the same genetic mutation him and his father has with their heart condition. This entire Journey has been a whirlwind yet it has taught us so much. It has burdened us financially and emotionally. When he was diagnosed with cancer, I mentally and socially shutdown. I was already trying to process his transplant. Since then we don’t go many places. He has started school and he plays baseball with the miracle league. Some days we're ok and others we're down BUT God! Your help will definitely bless us. We live off of Jujus SSI. Moved to Charleston from Columbia right out of the Ronald McDonald house with just his SSI. God made a way out of no way. Most importantly he kept us together as a family. So any help is always a blessing and we are grateful. Again Thank you so much for help blessing our children this Christmas.

God bless you all,
The Sumter Family
