On the 28th of October 2017, Quindarius was very drowsy. He also had occasional fevers. He wouldn’t talk or eat much. He was taken to Athens Hospital where they diagnosed him with Anemia. Later they ran more tests and noticed that his blood counts were abnormal so they transported him to Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta where they later diagnosed him with Leukemia (ALL).
On November 7th, he concurred his first Outpatient clinic visit for chemotherapy and a spinal tap. He did very well. On November 10, 2017, he was doing great. This an emotional experience for his family because Jr. recently being diagnosed with infections such as Mucositis and E-Coli, he has been more sick and unable to eat drink or even walk on his own.
To Quandarius and his family, NEGU means that you should always have faith in something and to never give up! His mom, Marquita says, “The Jessie Rees foundation has helped us have faith and courage and to also never give up trying to find a cure for my son.”
WE NEGU FOR YOU QUINDAIRUS!!! Stay strong!!!
