HELP US TACKLE KIDS CANCER!
Our Son Donovan was diagnosed with Leukemia the day before his second birthday, October 2018. Donovan underwent surgery to have a port/portacath implanted, had his first Spinal Tap, and began chemo the day he turned two years old. This diagnosis and everything that followed was the scariest, most horrifying reality we have ever faced in our entire lives.
Once we got back to Donovan’s room after recovery, we walked into a space decorated for Our Beautiful Boy’s Second Birthday!! There were balloons, a handmade sign, a birthday banner, streamers, festive decorations, and gifts… it was the magical work of the incredible team at HUMC, a team that includes Tomorrows Children’s Fund (TCF). This care and thoughtfulness shined a heartwarming light on our darkest days.
TCF has helped us in COUNTLESS ways, including assisting us in relocating so we could be closer to both the Reuten Clinic (Angels on Earth!) and the Pediatric ER at HUMC. We moved into our new home on December 1 and welcomed Our Second Son in January 2019. It was a beautiful, scary, and crazy time for our family.
We are infinitely grateful that Donovan has been in remission and after eight months of intense treatment, he is now undergoing Maintenance which will last 2.5 years… daily chemo, a regimen of meds including more chemo, and a Spinal Tap once every three months. TCF has been there through it all, and now we are asking you to help support this selfless organization.
We will forever be thankful for the numerous ways TCF has helped make our worst nightmare that much more bearable. Throughout our journey we have witnessed a beauty and love in the world we have never before seen… an outpouring of prayers and support from family and friends both near and far, a steady flow of kindness and generosity from strangers, prayers and support from a multitude of people we have only met once, many of which we have never even seen. We are blessed to be surrounded by such a loving and caring community and TCF is a BIG part of that!! There are just no words to express the gratitude we hold in our hearts for all the love and support we have been given, and continue to receive.
