My name is Julie. I really need help raising money for my vehicle to be repaired. My youngest son Isaac is at the end of 3 years of treatment for ALL Leukemia (blood cancer). He just had his final chemo this month Oct 9th and is currently having his last month of oral home medicine. Although he is doing well, he still has appointments to do monthly blood checks for a few months. Then in some time ahead have an mri and have his port removed and a follow up with his neurologist to be eventually taken off of his anti seizure medicine as well. Isaac was diagnosed a day before his 2nd birthday 10-1-2011, after 3 years of treatment and many other ups and downs including loosing family throughout his fight and Isaac had 5 seizures & was in ICU twice (once for 5 days) before being put on a preventative medicine. Isaac is and has been thankfully able to stay a happy boy with his sisters, brothers and I but we now have this hardship just as we were beginning a new phase for us moving forward in our future. We need to raise 2500.00 for the labor and repair cost for my 2010 Dodge Caravan. We luckily have a family friend with a shop who has given a discount of 1200.00, the engine going in is in great shape and will last many years. It wont take long to be finished once I have the money to cover charges. Because I am a full time mom of 5 and Isaac's illness I have been on a fixed income while unable to work and just getting by with little left for home needs. We have been blessed to have had family help with making ends meet but I dont know how I can get forward from here without my vehicle.  I was looking forward to becoming more independant as we started a new chapter. I have a temporary job I was planned to start (on hold at the moment) and had also been planing on getting Isac started at head start so I could work a few hours each day while they all would be in school. All my plans are now at a hault, I also really need my van to run because I am still going to be having to pay the loan and I am a busy mom of 5. I have errands like dr. appts, pharmacy for medicine, dentist apointments coming, grocery shoppping regulary and kids to and from school, to visit family and local kids to and from the school/park home as well. I'm also concerned for the kids walking to school in the cold weather coming as well, my kids already have been coughing after walking this last few mornings. in the meantime we are home bound praying that God is in the hearts of those who read our story~ Please help us to get rollin forward with our plans for our new phase and able to have our transportation again while finishing these last steps of his treatment as well. Even since the beginning of hIsaac's diagnosis Isaac has always loved to go for rides, he loves to listen to music on the go and just had got a brand new carseat right bofre we broke down. His next appointment is Nov 7th we're hoping to have raised the money and have our van home by this deadline at longest. Any donation is greatly aprreciated~ ~Thankyou for your time and bless you~
