My 9 year old step daughter Emily was diagnosed with AML ( acute myeloid leukemia) on Oct 25, 2013. She has been in the Children's Hospital Los Angeles for the past 4 months struggling with many secondary infections. She is on her way to a bone marrow transplant with in the month. Thank God that they have secured a bone marrow donor and we are very blessed and extremely excited.  The medical bills have started coming in but the real cost is coming after the transplant. She will have to be home cared for the next year and a half. Home health care costs about $3,200 a month which is not covered by insurance. Unfortunately we just do not have the funds to cover the costs.  We are asking for help. I have to work to keep my insurance to cover the medial expenses and my husband is a special education teacher for extremely severe population which there is no replacement for him. Emily has endured so much in such a short period of time and when she is not in pain or nausea her spirit is strong and I know she will beat this cancer. This has been so surreal and overwhelming experience for my husband and I and we are very fortunate that we have so many friends and family that support us. We thank you in advance for any support you can give us. We greatly appreciate it and May God bless you and keep you until then...
