James Deere, age 4 was taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital's emergency room on 4/12/10 with what was believed to be a "stomach virus" when in fact tests proved it was a very rare strep type A blood infection. James decompensated very quickly and was in kidney failure, septic (Lack of blood and oxygen to tissue), and suffering from toxic shock (Bacterial Infection) due to the strep group A entering his blood stream.

Normally this bug would only result in a typical "sore" strep throat; however, if it finds its way into the bloodstream it will wreak havoc. Unfortunately, James' left arm and right leg were amputated due to the damage done by the disease.

Albany County Correctional Facility for Children's Benefit, (www.accfcb.org) supports seriously ill children around Albany, New York's Capital Region. We are attempting to locating a donated van that could be retrofitted with a lift to transport James and his wheelchair. If you can help us please contact Suzanne MacDaniel, Vice President ACCFCB @ 518-813-1493. Thank you.
