Jessica is the mother of Elijah. Elijah is a fighter. And Ronald McDonald House is right there with him.

My first experience with Ronald McDonald was when he was born, he spent two and a half months in the NICU. And, got better from there, just complications. And, then when he was a little over two and a half he was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma. But, his was a little worse than that because it was stage four neuroblastoma but only 1% of the children that get cancer get neuroblastoma. He was 1% of the 1%. He didn't have an origin it was his entire body. And, they told me I have if I'm lucky two months. He is now seven, still back and forth. But, he's doing better now. It's been a very long bumpy road.
