First diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1982, Deb proves to be a strong fighter, who gives it all to her family and her community.

Meet the Culbertson Family… a Jamie’s Hope Angel Tree Family: After a two-year battle and removing most of her ovaries, she was told she was “cancer-free.” Then, a week after adopting a newborn daughter, she was told she only had one month to live.

She has helped hundreds of students graduate and even more so she inspired the, to make life changes for so many people. She also received a PHD in under 4 years and has started working for Texas A&M CC. She works tirelessly to provide for her family and help others. She had month visits to MD Anderson for years stacking up 10 grand each visit. She lives in continuous pain daily, while remaining one of the kindest, most humble person. She is battling with an incurable cancer that has now spread to her blood. The Culbertson family consists of Debbie (57), Mike (husband) and granddaughter (8).

5-yr-old Tristran, sick from birth and continuously mis-diagnosed fights for his life.

5-yr-old Tristran, sick from birth and continuously mis-diagnosed fights for his life.

Meet the Woodard Family… a Jamie’s Hope Angel Tree Family: Tristran was a happy baby, but from birth he was always sick and had trouble eating and holding food down. This went on for two years always perplexing everyone. One day he held a high fever and was continuously crying so his parents took him to the doctor, who told them that he had an ear infection and sent them home with antibiotics. The fever and crying continued, so they took him to the ER. Again, they were told that it had a cold and sent home. Their son continued to get worse and the pain was so severe that you couldn’t touch him without great pain. He couldn’t sit, walk or anything. They took him back to the ER and insisted that someone find out what was truly wrong with him. After some x-rays, they were told that their son had pneumonia. Tristran’s parents further insisted that they find out what is causing it. After doing bloodwork, the results came in. Tristran had only about one pint of blood left in his body. They immediately did two blood and platelet transfusions. It was at this time that the Woodard family learned the devastating news, their son most likely had Leukemia. The family relocated to Cleveland, TX after dealing with financial woes, which led to an eviction from their home. They wanted to be closer to family, but they were having medical issues of their own. Tristran was in and out of the hospital repeatedly with varying illnesses during his “maintenance phase”, which surprised his doctors. This continued for...

Struggling during the Holidays with cancer  ❄️ The Reason Angel Tree Started ❄️

Struggling during the Holidays with cancer ❄️ The Reason Angel Tree Started ❄️

Going through cancer treatment for me has been a great struggle to keep up with everyday duties and especially during the holidays. Every single day I wake up thinking how am I going to get through the day and get stuff done (sick, low energy, or just don’t feel good) whereas before cancer I woke up everyday with energy thinking what am I going accomplish or get done. The first year I was I on treatment for my 4th cancer relapse (targeted therapy and chemotherapy-2012) I experienced a new struggle that I had never encountered with my previous cancer treatments. We had our daughter, family that we always hosted which I did almost all the shopping for (25-40 people) and the Christmas lunch. I love shopping (so it’s fun and not work, lol) but it was a lot when I was healthy with normal energy, so when the holidays arrived I didn’t know how I was going to get through it. Thank god I have a support system and we could afford to pay for help as well when needed!!!!!! Many families that go through cancer may lose part of a salary or all of it when they can’t work and on top of losing income cancer is EXPENSIVE!!! I have always said… I don’t know how families with lower to middle incomes get through this due to all the added costs of cancer. One day I am going to add a list of all the expenses that cancer can add to a person or families. Ex. Prior to this cancer relapse I cooked and cleaned ALOT more, since...

22-month-old Nolan, just beginning his life, suddenly battling a very rare case of cancer…

22-month-old Nolan, just beginning his life, suddenly battling a very rare case of cancer…

Meet the Day Family… a Jamie’s Hope Angel Tree Family: Misty and Greg, are true Texas born high-school sweethearts. They met at age 16, became fast friends, started dating a year later, attended college together and married a couple of years after graduating. They both worked hard in school and in their careers to set the foundation for the family they planned to build together. In 2009, they welcomed their first son, Carson, to the world and in 2012 they were blessed with their second miracle, Nolan. In August of 2013, they bought a brand new home and moved to Cross Creek Ranch in Fulshear, TX so that their boys could attend great schools. However they remain active members at Sugar Creek Baptist Church, which they have attended since 2009. They could be seen most weekends playing outside with their friends, with big friendly smiles and waves to those who passed by. On April 10th, their plans came to a halt as Greg and Misty received the news that every parent fears; their sweet 22-month old son, Nolan, was diagnosed with Cancer (Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma). His case is extremely rare for children his age. Thus, he was put through rigorous testing prior to the diagnosis – including a lymph node biopsy, two CT scans, a bone marrow aspiration, three spinal taps, a PET scan, antibiotics and various blood tests. They were overwhelmed and exhausted! Their lives have been turned completely upside-down! This has caught them emotionally and financially off-guard. Although they have medical insurance, it does not cover the entirety of the costs that they will incur in the 2+...

Meet the Swaim Family… A Jamie’s Hope Angel Tree Family Michelle currently resides with her aunt and uncle in Willis TX. She is staying with family so that she can be closer to MD Anderson treatment facilities.

14-yr-old Estela, diagnosed in 2012 with a blood fungus (Leukemia) is in and out of the hospital with a very weak immune system…

5-year-old Alex had always been a very happy, sweet and crazily active little boy… that was until he was no longer able to walk and now battling for his life.

5-year-old Alex had always been a very happy, sweet and crazily active little boy… that was until he was no longer able to walk and now battling for his life.

Meet the Mendoza Family… a Jamie’s Hope Angel Tree Family: On March 26th of this year, Alex began complaining of pain in his legs. At first they thought it was due to him jumping off of his brother, Christian’s, bunk bed. They took him into orthopedics thinking he had an injury and found he was perfectly fine… at least that’s what the orthopedic said. They went home and called his pediatrician. Two weeks later, Alex couldn’t even walk. His legs continuously got worse and bruises began to appear. His pediatrician told them to come back in and 3 days later, they were told that Alex had Acute Lymphoid Leukemia (Philadelphia positive). Due to a blood based fungal infection, he and his family had to stay in the hospital for 6 straight months. On top of this, just one month after Alex’s diagnosis, their home was burglarized and everything was stolen. All of their electronics (TVs, X-box, tablets, and more) along with the kids’ games; the only entertainment they had with Alex due to his limited physical abilities. 5 months later they were finally able to go home and have been in and out of the hospital since. Since his diagnosis their lives have changed forever. Their sweet boy has had to undergo painful after painful procedure and it breaks their hearts as parents to see him cry and having to hold him so that he can get pokes and medicine. Alex is truly inspiring to them. Despite all he’s been through, he still always smiles and plays and loves people. They are very proud of him. Although they are...
