My Story

Colevin was a very happy and outgoing 3 year little boy who was diagnosed with ALL in Dec. of 2006. He went through treatment with a smile on his face and with no problems at all he went into remission, sadly a year later in Dec. of 2007 we were told the cancer had come back. We worked very hard and got him into remission again, however the drugs were just not strong enough for his cancer and relapsed a second time in May of 2008. With a team of great doctors from all over and many of hospitals stays we finally got him into remission a third time and were preparing to go into stem cell transplant. He was very strong and hard headed and never let the cancer stop him from doing what he wanted to do. He kept that glowing smile on his face and wanted to "kick cancer in the butt." Just two weeks before the transplant he caught an infection that none of us knew about because the drugs he was on were so strong that it was hiding all he signs that he had an infection, and sadly on September 20th of 2008 the infection was so bad it took his life. Colevin's memory will always live on, he touched many people and I couldn't be more proud to call him my son! I want to thank my little cousin Adam Frederick for doing St. Baldrick's in memory of Colevin, it means the world to me to have such a great and supportive family full of people willing to do things in my little angels memory.
