My Story

9 yrs ago. Kyle was diagnosed with Leukemia. From that moment on you forget what normal is. 2 yrs later Kyle relapsed in his spinal fluid. He began a toxic regiment of chemotherapy & radiation but that did not stop the disease. It returned on December 2006 . It was found in his left eye. His only hope for survival was a Bone Marrow Transplant. His only sibling Colette was his miracle. She was his perfect 6/6 match. On February 7, 2006 Kyle underwent his BMT. His recovery was a battle. You learn from the very beginning to look no further than today. In 2007, Kyle took a serious turn for the worse and spent 9 months in the hospital. He suffered spinal menangitis and had a stroke. Kyle's chance for survival was slim but miraculously he survived. His quality of life suffered and he continued to struggle with many set backs. On August 10, 2010 at Duke University Hospital, surrounded by his family, Kyle peacefully passed away. Kyle looked forward to the St Baldricks event. He knew after the event and the next time he saw his mother she would be bald like many of his friends who were fighting cancer. Please remember Kyle and all the children that fight the demon CANCER when you're making your donation. Thank you so much for supporting St. Baldricks!!!!!!!!!!!
