My Story

Raistlin is a happy 14 year old boy. He likes to play video games and bug his little sisters. On March 21, 2008 Raistlin was diagnosed with Ph+ Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He was thrown into a battle that no child should ever have to face. Raistlin was so sick that the doctor said a bone marrow transplant was our only chance at saving him. Our prayers were answered when we learned that his sister Cianna was a perfect match. Raistlin was transfered to Riley Childrens Hospital where he underwent a bone marrow transplant. It was a long recovery process, but was well worth it. Today, Raistlin is in remission. He is still under the close watch of his doctor at Peyton Manning Childrens Hospital and he is getting stronger every day.
