My Story

On June 7, 2006 Colton was diagnosed with Leukemia. We spent Most of June in the hospital. July and August went fairly well, getting used to doctors, nurses, and lots of different Chemo's and medicines. Then in September when Colton started getting the ARA-C drug, he got very sick. He did not eat and was throwing up during the month to a point where at the end of September he got so weak we ended up in the hospital for the whole month of October, most of November and half of December. We finally got out of the hospital in time for Christmas. It worked out in the treatment schedule that we had a two week break over Christmas. Boy did we need it. January 2008 went by fairly normal, but in February the ARA-C started again. We were back in the hospital getting blood, platelets, and then blood again. Through all this Colton is still a smiling, happy, loving, and affectionate young boy. He loves to help out other people. He can be the one in the room that is most sick but he will still ask if he can help with whatever is being done. Colton loves to wear camo and play Army. He is in the Cub Scouts and like archery and camping. He likes to cook. When grows up he wants to be a Whale trainer, Veterinarian, and a Chef.
