Try and imagine living your life in a hospital room. Then, think of not eating a meal for three years: no ice cream, no french fries, no gummy worms or chicken tenders. The comfort foods that most 8 year olds love - when sick -- being completely out of reach. Little Elijah has lived this life until very recently.
The Backstory: Jesse and his wife Nakia lost their 13 year old daughter, Essence, to Sickle-Cell Anemia six years ago. Their youngest son Elijah, age 8, has lived at Children's Mercy Hospital for the past several years in a constant fight for his life with the same disease. Their middle son, Isaiah, gave his brother bone marrow for a transplant three years ago. Elijah's body then developed complications and caused greater suffering for him and the family.
