Hey ladies, there is a JM member from another board who really, really needs our T & P's. Here is their story:
docsmomma's little boy is in desperate need of prayers. Joey has a rare blood disease called LCH. There is no known cause or a cure for this disease. Though there it is not cancer, it acts like cancer and is treated the same way. At thirteen months of age Joey has spent most of his short life receiving chemo therapy.
Every six weeks he goes in and has CAT scans done to see if the LCH tumors have shrunk. Up until this past week every single scan has shown improvement. Unfortunately, this time we weren’t so lucky. Not only has the LCH not gotten better, it has gotten worse. The mass in his lungs is back. The other tumors have grown. All this while he was still receiving chemo. The doctors have informed Traci that they have no choice but to readmit Joey to the hospital for a much stronger, much harsher dose of chemo. This will completely devastate what little immune system he has. If this does not work, a bone marrow transplant will be their only option.
Please pray for little Joey Born. Pray that salvage works, that he doesn’t have to resort to a BMT. Pray for his parents. Joey’s illness has depleted all savings. Now that he is going back into the hospital, they are worried about their financial stability. Pray for their financial stability. Pray for Joey’s older siblings. His sister, Melanie (age 3), is having a very difficult time knowing that Mommy is leaving again to be with Joey at the hospital. His brother, David (age 7), has shut down. Traci said he won’t even look at her.
