Local toddler faces bone marrow transplant

Port Richey -- A local family is struggling as their 2-year-old son faces a heartbreaking health battle.

The sweet-faced toddler, Recolon Anthony Jumpp, Jr., was born with a very rare blood disease called Thalassemia Major and now requires a bone marrow transplant.

Recolon's family, including his grandmother Angel of Port Richey, is currently attempting to raise money to help with the co-payment and living expenses while he is having and recuperating from the transplant.  Insurance only covers 80% of extraordinarily expensive treatment, so the family is tasked with coming up with the balance.

Angel's daughter, son-in-law, and grandson live in Orlando. They are now trying to get approval and doctors at All Children's Hospital in St. Pete so that the chemo, transplant and recovery can be completed in Pinellas County under the best care possible.
