Hey Tumblies! Please help Naimah’s family through a difficult time!
Naimah Dieme’s Fundraising Page
We are starting this fundraiser in support of Naimah Dieme who, at age 3, was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma. The diagnosis came in February 2012 – a few months after the family purchased a new home and a month before her family welcomed her baby sister, Sarah, into this world. Christine (Naimah’s mom and a personal friend) has understandably quit her job to focus on the health of her children. With Naimah’s chemotherapy regimen – plus a new house and newborn – Christine and Mamadou (Naimah’s dad) have been overwhelmed with an unexpected financial burden and the emotional toll of navigating a difficult diagnosis and treatment course.
Naimah is currently continuing her chemotherapy and will receive a bone marrow transplant in the next few months. Despite the arduous treatment and accompanying fatigue and nausea, Naimah is a fighter and continues to be a typical 3 ½ year old girl – playful, loving, and stubborn!
The “we” behind this fundraiser are friends of the Dieme family who want to support them during this difficult time. I think we would all agree that the last thing the family should be worried about right now is money.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. Many thanks for your support — and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
