Becky Jo was diagnosed in August 2009 with AML Leukemia Sub Type M5 with Myelodysplastic Syndrome ... Very rare aggressive form of acute myeliod leukemia. Becky Jo has under gone a Stem Cell transplant at the Karmanos Cancer Center in Detroit Michigan in March of 2010. She has been in complete remission untill May 2012 when she tragically relapsed...

Now, she has under gone intense cancer chemo treatment called, MEC.... Very powerful leukemia fighting drugs. During her chemo treatment Becky Jo, developed Sepsis, blood poisoning when she was neutropenic (without a immune system)... Becky spent three days in the ICU clinging to life fighting this deadly infection. She did recover....

Second round of cancer chemo one month later. When she was neutropenic she again developed Sepsis, blood infection. After another three days in the ICU with tempetures of over 104 degrees, she recovered.

Becky Jo is scheduled to receive another Stem Cell transplant at Karanos Cancer Center. She is now going through her second bone marrow transplant at Harper Hospital, Detroit Michigan.

Becky Jo needs your help and support to fight this deadly tragic disease... The medical and transportation costs are unbelieveably high. Please, go to: http://www.novadpm.com/bringinghope ...Becky Jo's website...

As many of you may already know, the expense of travels, at times lodging, everyday expenses, and living expenses can be very demanding at times and this is a way for us to be able to raise money for a great cause...

I would just like to say a personal thank you for all who have allowed God to lead their heart to give during my families trying times. While it is hard to receive donations for a young lady who has always worked for anything she has received, I remain a faithful believer, that God takes care of his own...as David said in Psalms 37:25, "I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread". Phillipians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus".
