LJ, age 10 is the first child ever diagnosed with Hyper-Eosiniphilic Syndrome. LJ’s illness is one of the rarest forms of cancer. In fact he is the first child ever diagnosed with this disease. All others have been adults.
LJ is African-American, Native American, and Latino. He needs a bone marrow transplant to survive, but does not have a match. Even though he is in treatment he has been able to be present at several bone marrow drives and TV appearances up and down the east coast. All to make his appeal that someone save his life.
