Imagine your child being sick. Imagine being told your child has cancer. I know... its impossible to imagine what it feels like. It is something that none of us want to imagine. For the White family however, they were told their precious 5 year old daughter Ellie had AML - Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Ellie fought hard and completed her treatment like a star. The family was able to breathe again. Except, a few months later it came back. Ellie's world was pushed back into cancer, and they needed to find a bone marrow transplant. The SWAB FOR ELLIE campaign was incredible, and not only did Ellie find a match, but so did a few others who were looking. Ellie's swab drives not only saved her life, but others as well! It was incredible how many people came out to get swabbed to help Ellie.
Bone marrow transplant complete, Ellie again came home. We all smiled and enjoyed seeing pictures of Ellie being a kid and going to camp.
Ellie started grade 2 - YAY! Only for her fabulous day to be clouded over by cancer - AGAIN.
Ellie unfortunately started treatment AGAIN and is thankfully in remission - for a third time. But now, we need to help CURE Ellie. We need to help Ellie so that she can start grade 3 with her friends next year. We need to help Ellie so she can graduate elementary school, high school, and university. We need to help Ellie experience her first kiss and her first heartbreak. We need to help Ellie experience a long and healthy life
Ellie and her family are moving THIS WEEK to Ohio which is where they found an experimental treatment. She needs a transplant that is only available there.
A GoFundMe account was started for Ellie. EVERY DONATION WILL HELP. Her treatments are NOT covered and her family needs to pick up their life and move to the USA to save their baby's life.
Have only $5 to spare? That's good enough! EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS.
Ellie's GOFUNDME page is https://www.gofundme.com/f/fightforellie
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, I am begging you. ONE Starbucks coffee is all I am asking you to give up.
HELP SAVE ELLIE'S LIFE.
