My Story

We are so happy to say that  Jaxon finished his treatment on June 20, 2014 and is now 5 1/2 years cancer free.  Jaxon was diagnosed with (ALL) pre-B, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on February 28, 2011, just 3 months short of his 4th birthday.  Throughout his 3 years & 4 months of chemotherapy treatment, Jaxon endured numerous hospital stays, clinic visits, lumbar punctures, pokes, x-rays and scans.  Through it all Jaxon remained strong-willed and determined to win his battle against this hateful disease. Now, Jaxon attends the 7th grade and works hard to remain a straight A student.  He enjoys sailing and competing on the High School JV Sailing race team, where he races 420 sailboats. Jaxon also enjoys playing the violin, playing soccer and lacrosse, and being a Boy Scout.  Jaxon dreams of one day becoming a pediatric oncology doctor or nurse at Johns Hopkins Children's Center.
