GO FUND ME:My grandchild Dalvin was able to travel to India and underwent an initial round of aggressive chemotherapy.  Testing after this initial round chemo, indicated that the treatment was ineffective and more aggressive treatment was needed.  He needs to have a bone marrow transplant to improve his chances of recovery.  The basic cost of the transplant is $15,000 and in addition to this we will need to pay for his travel and accommodation costs and other associated bills.  He is back in India undergoing additional testing prior to the transplant.  We are therefore asking for your assistance once again to make this happen for him.  We appreciate your support and encouragement during this journey.  We do have a go fund me page that has been up for a while that has really assisted with the bills https://www.gofundme.com/82mpyumc     Thank you so much for your assistance and considerationMary Orori
