Two New York City EMT’s met at work, quietly fell in love and moved to Texas to pursue their dream careers and start a family. Pablo worked his way up to become a deputy sheriff, I studied to become a nurse. We both love giving of our time and attention to help others.
When Ashton our first born was diagnosed we had 6 month old baby and had our worlds were rocked to the core. Though our faith tested we had faith in God. I had to stop working and seek help from my mother so she can help with the baby as well. Ashton went from being a little social butterfly who loved school and church to becoming a anxious, nervous wreck. He goes to two different types of therapy to help with his anxiety.
We pray not just for physical health but also mental health healing for Ashton. This all played a toll on my family emotionally as well as financially but never forgetting God has control of everything. Leukemia in our son hasn’t been easy, he’s struggled along the way and of course as parents so have we but this will be all part of his testimony one day .
My families lives started to change in 2020, when mommy started battling colorectal cancer. After COVID hit things got weird. At the time my baby girl jadis was 3 & my handsome 7 year old boy went to stay with their grandparents. I had a transanal surgery to remove any residue and start treatment~radiation /chemotherapy. Six months later I started having severe back pain. We found out through emergency spinal surgery, I had a huge mass removed along my spine. The biopsy showed it was rare find/cancer called myeloid sarcoma in which manifested into AML leukemia. After the spinal surgery because being so close to the spine, I would have to to work out really hard to regain 100 mobility of my legs.
When we realized the journey that was ahead, my mother offered her home in Texas. I had to leave the place I grew up but after prayer we were moving to Texas! It was confirmed serval times that Texas was the best direction for my health and family. This year we have been through some ups and downs with treatments of chemo..
