At only seven months old Jayvin was diagnosed with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML). This type of leukemia is extremely rare and the only known cure is a stem cell transplant. Jayvin underwent his transplant at eight months old; if he does not relapse he will be considered cured by the year 2013. Until that time he will continue to receive treatment to maintain his health. Jayvinâ€™s immune system is still compromised, so his mother is unable to work while she cares for him during recovery. His family is in need of assistance with their expenses, especially transportation to and from the treatment center.
