AJ was diagnosed with blood cancer when he was 2. The bone marrow he took at the Jose Reyes Medical Center confirmed that he has leukemia. Since then, AJ has been a regular patient of the hospital for various laboratory tests, as well as started with his maintenance medicines. The time came he had episodes of seizures. The parents transferred him to a children’s hospital in Quezon City, where he is being treated according to his age. He needed urgent bone marrow procedures, IT, and Cytospine, and the family would need help.
