I really hate to post this, but something is pushing me to do so. We have a friend in our small town of Monroe that has a 13 yr. old daughter that was just diagnosed with white blood cell leukemia last Thursday.
This man works all night cleaning, he's a self employed individual, and then drives to Madison every day to be with his daughter at the American Family Children's Hospital. His daughter currently has pneumonia, tumors in her heart and cancer cells in her spine. Yesterday she suffered a collapsed lung and today is the 2nd of her spinal taps in the last few days. As you have probably already guessed, her treatments are not fun, but from what her dad tells me, she's a fighter and has a great outlook.
My question to you is, what can we do for this family? I'm looking for ideas on how to help them. The immediate need that we can see if that they are doing a lot of driving, so we are going to get them gas cards, and possibly some gift cards for groceries. I know a fair amount of people are touched by this horrible disease every year, so I'm wondering if anyone can help me in figuring out what we can do to help besides gift cards.
