Name of GoFundMe:
Help Carson beat Aplastic Anemia

Description:
In September 2019, after a regular pediatric visit, low blood cell count sent Carson for immediate blood work at Brick hospital. From Brick hospital, he was driven to Jersey Shore Medical Center ER, rushed into the ICU, and given a blood transfusion. During the transfusion, Carson suffered a brain seizure and was placed in an induced coma and intubated. He was then flown via helicopter to Hackensack Medical Center PICU and was continuously monitored for 2 weeks. Luckily, he progressed enough to become an outpatient. So far, hospital bills have amounted to over $100,000 and the family is doing everything they can to make ends meet.

In December, Carson will begin chemotherapy treatment and a bone marrow transplant requiring complete isolation for at least 14 days and will remain as an inpatient for 6 to 8 weeks. After his inpatient stay, Carson will continue traveling to Hackensack twice a week for a minimum of 3 months. Please consider making a donation and alleviating some of the financial burden that the family faces during this extremely difficult time.

Although the road ahead for Carson will be tough, we are hopeful that he will make progress after his chemotherapy treatment and bone marrow transplant.
