My Story

I'd like to introduce you to Daniel. He was diagnosed with Pre-B ALL on June 8, 2011, 3 months shy of his 3rd birthday. 30 days after he was diagnosed we received the news that Daniel had a rare type of ALL, he has a chromosomal translocation, t(17; 19). This type of ALL is diagnosed in less than 1% of ALL patients. What does this mean for kids like Daniel, it means that standard chemo doesn't work on them, and that each treatment is an experiment to see what can get a child with this translocation into remission. All through these treatments Daniel has remained brave and strong. He loves playing with his trains and cars and keeping his nurses on their toes. Daniel also loves looking at pictures of flowers and telling his parents what flowers he would like planted in his garden at home (that he wants his puppies to play in). Daniel smiles everyday and finds things to laugh about. Daniel has a hard road ahead of him, but with the support of so many he never has to be alone. Through organizations like St. Baldricks we hope that a cure for pediatric cancer can be found and that more research can be done into the rare type of ALL that Daniel has.
