need help with a fundraiser for my husband

We are throwing a fundraiser for my husband Jun who has been battling Non Hodgkin Lymphoma stage 4b since Nov of 2010. He will be going in for a bone morrow transplant tomorrow 2/16/2012. We have 2 lil girls Angelina who is 6 and Isabella who is 7 months old. We have been struggling this entire year. All proceeds will go to our family to help with medical bills and just everyday things that we can not afford anymore. Jun never wanted us to do a fundraiser because he did not want people to pity him but it has gotten to a point where we have no choice. We truly need the help.

A little about the last year and half of our family's life. It all started in oct of 2010 when jun started to not feel so good, it got worst by the day at the same time I found we were excepting with our 2nd child. By the end of nov 2010 jun was so bad he was running a 104 fever and i had to force him to go into the hospital. Well with in 20 minutes he was admitted and the er doctor told us that he could possibly have cancer(I was very anger that an er doctor would say that from just blood work) needless to say he was right jun went through a thousand tests and finally after 2 weeks we found he had a rare form of Non Hodgkin lymphoma (b-cell rich t-cell)stage 4B (there are 18 reported cases of this type of cancer) he was at the last stage of the cancer and 95% of his bone marrow was cancer. He finally got his first chemo and made it home a couple of days before Christmas( When I brought my daughter Angelina 5 at the time to see Santa that year and he asked her what she wanted for Christmas she said I want my daddy home) she got her wish because daddy made it home a couple of days before Christmas. While jun was in and out of the hospital I had found that I got the fifths disease from my older daughters school. When I went to the doctor he told me I really had nothing to worry about because only about 2% of women have a reaction to contracting that during there pregnancy, well I went for the sono and of coarse I was that 2%(CAUSE WE NEEDED THE EXTRA STRESS) the baby was highly anemic, I was then sent to NYU in Manhattan where they did a fetal blood transfusion (took all the baby's blood out through the umbilical cord using the needles through my belly and replaced it with fresh blood) all this while my husband is going through chemo and in and out of the hospital for Neutropenic fevers (which happens after chemo and you get a fever and your blood count is tanked) after i got the transfusion done i was getting sonos 2x a week and seeing the doctor once a week all this while driving my husband to doctors and and chemo treatments or just going to stony brook hospital to sit with him all day while our oldest was in school. I just never thought our bad luck would ever stop. Then on June 22,2011 we got our first miracle her name is Isabella Faith she was born perfect no problems at all. My OB called her the miracle baby. Jun was the next miracle we were waiting for because of how rare his cancer was it was tuff for the doctors to find a chemo that worked on him.So we started tested his brothers to see if they would be a match for him to get the bone marrow transplant done, we found out his younger brother leo was 100% match which is amazing.But Jun wanted to use his own stem cells for the transplant because even though his brother was a 100% match there could still be a chance of him getting the host disease which is life threatening,so after 5 different chemo treatments they finally found one that worked and jun was clean of the cancer and could move on with the transplant using his own cells. Which is what he is going through now, he will be in the hospital for 4 weeks as long as everything goes as planned. This has definitely been one of the hardest year we have ever endured and with the the support and prayers from all our friends,family and the help of god jun has made it this far.

So i ask everyone to please come to the fundraiser it will be a great night of some drinks, karaoke, raffles, prizes 50/50 and some good food from Tj hero( ) and tl halpkins ( ). And if you can not make it and would like to still donate a Paypal account was set up for the fundraiser the link is bellow..
