THESE TWO SONGS ARE DEDICATED TO BOTH JESSE AND KARMINA.
JESSE IS BATTLING CANCER AND IF HE DOESNT GET A BONE MARROW BLOOD TRANSPLANT QUICKLY THE CHANCES ARE, THAT HE WILL DIE. HE IS VERY YOUNG AND A WONDERFUL BROTHER TO ME, A LOVING FATHER TO HIS CHILDREN A LOVING AND CARING PARTNER TO HIS PARTNER KARMINA.
HE IS ALSO ONE OF THE PROTECTORS AND ADOPTED UNCLES TO MY SON SEAN. A KIND AND HONEST GENUINE LOVING FRIEND HE WILL BE TO YOU IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO CALL HIM A FRIEND.I AM PROUD TO CALL HIM BROTHER AND FRIEND. IF HE DIES HE LEAVES BEHIND 3 LITTLE ONES WHO WILL GROW UP WITHOUT THEIR FATHER. NO CHILD DESERVES TO LOSE THEIR MOTHER OR FATHER. PLEASE HELP HIM IF YOU CAN. JESSE IS OF MIXED RACE NATIVE AMERICAN (CHEROKEE) WHITE AND AA.
HOW TO DONATE BONE MARROW ARTICLE WRITTEN BY LADY CARA
There are two ways to donate bone marrow. The method used for donation depends upon the patients needs and is determined by the patients doctor.
A. Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Donation (PBSC): In this method, cells are collected via the bloodstream. To increase the number of stem cells in the bloodstream, donors receive daily injections of a synthetic protein called filgrastim for 4 days before and on the day of the collection.
On the day of collection the donor's blood is removed with a sterile needle from one arm and passed through a machine that separates out the blood stem cells. The remaining blood is returned to the donor through the other arm. The cell collection is an outpatient procedure that takes about 4-6 hours on 1-2 consecutive days.
Possible side effects and recovery: While taking the medication, many donors experience flu-like symptoms such as headaches, bone and muscle achiness and fatigue. Most side effects should subside within 48 hours of donating.
B. Bone Marrow Donation: Marrow cells are collected from the backside of the pelvic bone (not the spine) using a special syringe. Donors receive general anesthesia so no pain is experienced during the marrow extraction. This is a 1-2 hour, outpatient, surgical procedure.
Possible side effects and recovery: Many donors experience some pain, bruising and stiffness for up to two weeks after their donation. Within a week of donating, most donors are able to return to work, school and many regular activities. The donors marrow is completely replenished within a few weeks.

I STRONGLY SUPPORT BOTH BONE MARROW DONATION AND ORGAN DONATION. ONE OF MY CLOSE FRIENDS FROM HERE RECENTLY HAD A LIVER TRANSPLANT SO SHE NOW HAS A CHANCE TO GROW OLD AND SEE HER LITTLE ONE GROW UP. I, HANNAHROSE AM A CANCER SURVIVOR ALSO, AND WITHOUT A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT I WOULD HAVE DIED YOUNG AND NEVER KNOWN THE JOYS OF BECOMING A MOTHER OR OF LIVING A HAPPY LIFE WITH MY FAMILY SEEING MY CHILDREN GROW UP. MY MOTHER DIED FROM LIVER CANCER WHEN I WAS 13. I CAN SAY THE PAIN I FELT AND STILL FEEL AT THE LOSS OF MY MOTHER, WAS DEVASTATING. NO CHILD DESERVES TO LOSE THEIR MOTHER OR FATHER . I THINK IF WE WERE ALL HONEST WITH OURSELVES WE WOULD HOPE AND PRAY THAT IF IT WAS OUR LOVED ONE OR OURSELVES REQUIRING A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT OR AN ORGAN DONATION, WE WOULD HOPE SOME ONE OUT THERE WOULD BE KIND ENOUGH TO BE UNSELFISH TO DONATE THEIR BONE MARROW OR ORGANS THAT WE OR OUR LOVED ONE MAY HAVE A SECOND CHANCE TO HAVE A HAPPY LIFE TO GROW OLD WITH OUR FAMILY AND TO SEE OUR CHILDREN GROW UP.
I ALSO HUMBLY ASK THAT YOU PLEASE SHOW JESSE AND KARMINA YOUR FRIENDSHIP LOVE AND SUPPORT. EVEN IF ALL YOU DO IS STOP BY AND GIVE THEM YOUR LOVE FRIENDSHIP AND BEST WISHES . IT WOULD MEAN SO MUCH TO THEM AS THEY ARE BOTH STRUGGLING TO COPE WITH JESSE'S ILLNESS, AND WHAT IT WOULD MEAN FOR THEM IF HE DIDNT RECOVER. EVERY KIND WORD EVERY LITTLE PRAYER AND BLESSING WILL HELP THEM BOTH. I KNOW THAT IN MY DARKEST HOURS THEY AND MANY OF YOU HAVE STOOD FOR ME AND MY SON. SO I HUMBLY ASK YOU TO PLEASE DO THE SAME FOR THEM, AS I KNOW YOU WOULD FOR YOUR OWN FAMILY .THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. COVEN MASTER HANNAHROSE.
JESSE HAS NOW PASSED PEACEFULLY INTO SPIRIT . HE LOST HIS BATTLE WITH STOMACH CANCER AT AROUND 1:40 AM AUGUST 27TH 2011. REST IN PEACE DEAREST BROTHER WITH LOVE FROM YOUR SISTER HANNAHROSE AND YOUR GUARDIAN SON SEANBOY.
PS- I HAVE ADDED A FURTHER TRIBUTE TO JESSE UNDER THE FRIENDS THAT HAVE DIED SECTION OF MY JOURNAL FEEL FREE TO GO READ AND POST YOUR COMMENT. I HAVE HIS PHOTO HE GAVE ME IN MY PORTFOLIO WITH A COMMENT WRITTEN THERE ALSO.
Two people matched in heaven shall always be in my prayers. The fight against cancer is not an easy one but when two people so much in love pull together anything is possible. You are both in my prayers for a wonderfully long life together.
