My Story

June 30, 2008 we got some of the worst news we could have ever gotten. Our youngest child, 2yr old Isaac, has leukemia. We were immediately Life Flighted from our home town to The Children's Hospital in Aurora/Denver. The news just kept getting worse and worse, he has a rare form of leukemia, Bi lineage Leukemia, that is both ALL and AML, but more AML than anything. In addition to that, we discovered that Isaac has a rare congenital heart defect... Congenitally Corrected Transposition of the Great Arteries. Isaac was released on November 3, 2008 in full remission with no more treatment scheduled. But before even three months had passed, the leukemia was back, he relapsed. We began more intense chemotherapy in hopes of getting him to a bone marrow transplant, the only hope of a cure. One week before his scheduled admission for the transplant, he relapsed again. We are running out of options. Only two treatment options left at that point. We tried one of them and the cancer continues to spread and seems to have started to show up in his spinal fluid now. Only one treatment option left now. And even if it works and gets him into remission, his chances are very slim that a transplant will work at this point. We are getting ready to take our baby home as our hearts break....Isaac Died Nov 3 2009, with the dieing words "Daddy I Don't think I'm going to make it."
