My Story

Russell was a courageous, strong young man. He continued to amaze many people throughout his battle. He was a Chicago Cubs fan. He loved to listen to music on his I-Pod. He could be found drawing or writing in his journal. He was a pro bowler on Wii and loved to play Guitar Hero. His favorite school subject was history. This was Russell's second bout with cancer. He was dignosed with Leukemia (ALL) at age 4 and went through a Bone Marrow Transplant at age 6. You can follow Russell's story on his CarePage carepages.com/carepages/CareForRussell
