Please Help Baby Caden Atchley
From LiveJournal by levismommy
IM BACK FROM WASHINGTON BUT I DONT HAVE TIME TO UPDATE RIGHT NOW. LOTS OF PICS LATER BUT FOR NOW I WANT TO LET YOU ALL KNOW ABOUT THIS BABY IN THE TOWN WHERE MY BROTHER LIVES, I AM HOPING SOMEONE CAN HELP HIM AND HIS FAMILY.
When I went to go visit my brother in Spokane, Wa over the past two weeks I learned about Baby Caden and how sick he is. Caden is almost 5 months old and he was born with a rare blood disease called SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency). If any of you have seen the movie Bubble Boy that might help explain about this disease more. Caden can’t leave the hospital because he has absolutely no immune system, even the basic comman cold could kill him. He is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant and with the many marrow drives they have done there has been no matches. I was unable to make it to a drive while we were in Spokane but I plan on going to the local blood bank here and getting tested to see if I am a match and I am also going to see if I can get Levi tested as well. All it is is a simple mouth swab to check to see if your a match.
I am posting this on here hoping that there are some others who would want to help. Giving money donations to their family is also greatly needed as you can expect their medical bills to be huge. Here is some info on that…
Donating to the Caden Atchley Care Fund at any Bank of America location. You can also mail donations to: Josh and Melissa Atchely, PO Box 155, Colbert, WA 99005
Here is the link to Caden’s page if you would like more information.
If you aren’t able to help in any other way at least keep Caden and his family in your prayers.
Repost this and maybe someone in your town can help.
EDIT: I JUST REALIZED THAT THE LINK I HAVE UP ABOVE DOESNT WORK. TO VISIT HIS PAGE GO TO http://www.caringbridge.org/ AND CLICK ON VISIT ON THE TOP RIGHT CORNER. ONCE YOU DO THAT YOU TYPE IN cadenatchley IN THE SPOT FOR SITE NAME FOR THE TOP LINK. LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS.
