The thought of a child battling cancer once is hard enough, but imagine going through it 5 times.
That’s the situation of a Radcliff teen diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. John Hull and his grandmother, Vilmary Cotto have been at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital since the beginning of 2021. And while Hull has secured a bone marrow transplant, the bills, both medical and his grandmother’s, keep coming in.
“We’ve been here already a month,” Cotto, his primary caregiver says, “and we’re scheduled to be here until July. Because of this, I’ve lost my job, I’ve got a lot of bills to pay.”
“But, I mean, I’m not worried about all of that. I just want him to get well.”
The community has rallied around the two, starting a GoFundMe that’s raised nearly $6,000 so far. A link to the fundraiser can be found here.
