This week at Yellow Door we welcomed the Puigs, a family we can describe in a word--JOYFUL! Six-year-old Zeke has Accute Myeloid Leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. He is undergoing chemotherapy, and, due to Covid-19, had not been home or seen his family for over a month. Mom, Dad, Aunt and 3 siblings, known as the Puigletts, were finally able to visit him through the glass at UVA Hospital!
Zeke's parents and grandparents will be with him at the Yellow Door VOGA House, sponsored by the Virginia Oil and Gas Association, throughout his chemo treatment. Then it's on to Philadelphia for a transplant, with his younger sister as his donor! We plan to welcome them back after that.
Next Monday, we'll share a video of Zeke dancing that you won't want to miss!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and it's effects on non-profits, the United Way has instituted Day of Caring Now for May 5th. We would be most grateful if you can help us help families like Zeke's, who have a long fight ahead of them. And as always, please share our message with everyone you can in person or on social media. Thank you for your support!
