Fundraiser for Jay

Today’s post is about a fundraiser… a fundraiser for Jay. This is not a post written by me, but rather a post written by a hopeful grandmother that is trying very hard to help this beautiful baby and his family. I am a collaborator and have donated to one of her bundles, in hopes that she is successful in raising the amounts needed for little Jay to receive the treatments he so desperately needs. Please read through it and help them if you can. Thank you!

My name is Jay and this is my story.
When I was nearly 4 months old my Mummy took me to see the doctor. I had been sick for a few days and the doctor said I had a cold. He gave me some medicine to make the cold go away.
Mummy was worried because I didn’t seem to be getting any better, then I got a big bruise on my head! We went back to visit the doctor one cold Monday afternoon in March. He thought I looked very pale and took some blood from me.
On Tuesday Mummy got a phone call – we had to go on trip. On Thursday we travelled a long way by ambulance to a big hospital in the city. That night a doctor told my Mummy and Daddy that I had an illness with a fancy name – Acute Myeloid Leukaemia – what a tongue twister! The doctor said I needed a special medicine called chemotherapy. I had to have funny tubes in my head and chest. After the medicine I felt very poorly and got very fat! Mummy laughed that I was always sick over her and not Daddy!!
Sometimes I have to be given extra blood and spend a lot of time in a big room having a horrible needle put in my back. I try to be strong but sometimes I cry.
I don’t really like my milk anymore, so I have another funny tube up my nose and into my tummy – it tickles sometimes!
When I was nearly 5 months old, the doctor told Mummy and Daddy that I had a special illness called Acute Megakaryoblastic Leukaemia. The medicine has to be a bit stronger now, so Mummy and Daddy said I had to wear my superhero outfit and be a fighter! My big sister Chloe came to visit me and gave me a huge hug – this made me feel so good!
Granny told me that she has friends in her computer who have helped Mummy and Daddy. Mummy stays with me all the time, but Daddy travels a lot and they have to buy extra things for me. Visitors bring me presents and sometimes that makes Mummy cry, but she says it is happy crying! 
I miss my big sister and my doggy, Wheeto, but I know I have to stay here to get better. 
Granny said there are some more very kind people who want to help us. She has put some lovely things in her computer for people to buy. I am not really sure what this means, but Granny says it is a good thing! Mummy says I have to say thank you to everyone who is helping us, so I am giving you all a big thank you hug from me! I promise to be a big strong boy and keep fighting this bad illness, so I can get better and be with my family.
Did you see me in my giraffe outfit? Didn’t I look cute?!
Lots of love,
Jay
