Noah Johnson Needs Your Support!
At the young age of thirteen years old, Noah has been diagnosed with a rare blood disease called Severe Aplastic Anemia. His immune system is attacking itself and his bone marrow is no longer producing any of the 3 blood cell: red, white, and platelets. Noah is in need of a bone marrow transplant and the best treatment option is a transplant from a sibling. God answered our prayers and gave Noah his best chance of survival with two perfect bone marrow matches in his younger siblings, brother, Lucas 5 years old and sister, Aryana 2 years old.
Noah’s transplant journey has began and he has been admitted into the Rady’s Children Hospital of San Diego. He will endure chemotherapy to completely wipe out his old immune system, followed by a transplant on Tuesday, April 23rd. He will complete months of hospital stays, doctor visits, blood work, tutoring, physical conditioning and lots hard work. Noah will be on his way back to a normal life. He will complete the 7th grade in June, with the help of the hospital home school. He is looking forward to starting his 8th grade at his old school and hopeful to play sports in the fall.Transplants are lifesaving but financially draining. Even with insurance, the Johnson family faced very high out-of-pocket expenses including temporary relocation to San Diego, for the next 8 weeks during treatment, follow-up care, post-transplant immunosuppressant medications, co-pays, lab fees, tutoring expenses, transportation, childcare, off-work, Lucas’ medical expenses (Noah’s donor) and more. There will be ongoing expenses related to the transplant.To help with the financial burden of Noah’s uninsured expenses, a fundraising campaign in honor of Noah has been established through the HopeForNoah website. All donations are greatly appreciated. The Hope For Noah Bone Marrow Transplant Fund, will be used for all transplant-related expenses only. Please, consider a contribution.We thank everyone for the continued prayers and support..
