The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health. Psalm 41:3 Today we met with hospice. They will be helping See More

THE STORY:

This fundraiser is for my son Juan Isaiah Cruz III also known as "Juju".  Its for everything that his medical insurance will not cover.  For the unforgettable places he wants to visit, for adventures in attractions, camps he wants to enjoy, concerts and plays he wants to see, games he wants to attend, times where he can escape and worry about absolutely nothing.  Its for his missed on time birthdays celebrations, missed field trips, missed dances, missed dates, missed special moments. Its for making the impossible possible and for making the best out of his worse days.
For those who don't know, 
I want to tell a little bit about my 15 year old son named Juan Isaiah Cruz III also known as Juju. 5 years ago he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes which requires him to self injects insulin 3-5 times a day. On August 18th 2014 he was diagnosed with stage 3 Spindle cell Rhabdomyosarcoma which is a rare type of cancer but common for boys his age. He went through 6 weeks of radiation and 1 year of Chemotherapy. His last chemo was on June 6, 2015 but within weeks his tumor grew back and it was fast and aggressive. He has had several major surgeries which includes a Maxillofacial causing him to loose muscles and bone from the right side of his face, muscle from his right eye, his upper right side of his palate and all of his upper right side teeth. He has had numerous cycles of different type of inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy, including 2 visits to St.  Jude's Children's Hospital in TN and unfortunately all have been rejected or unsuccessful.  His cancer is now labeled as Refractory Rhabdomyosarcoma. (No chemo available for a cure) and my son was referred for hospice care.
Words could not describe how this diagnoses has not only altered my son's life but our entire family.
We have not lost hope.   We serve a true God.  We continue to believe in His promises, His perfect plan and claim VICTORY!
