My Story

Hi! My name is Leighton and I have Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). I am a six year old little boy who is full of life and full of laughs! I am a fighter! I currently live in Bismarck, ND and I am in the first grade. I am a big brother and my siblings love me! I am currently undergoing treatment and I have chemo on Mondays. Where I go for chemo is a very special place... it is Peter Pans Neverland! My mommy and daddy tell me often how very special I am. I LOVE dinosaurs and can tell you the scientific names of each one! I also love to play outside and especially love horses. I want to grow up to be a cowboy, just like my daddy. When people ask how I feel I tell them how God is on my side. I will beat cancer because my mommy says that is what we do! :)
