Craig was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia right before Thanksgiving in 2005.
He has endured many fevers, aches, pokes by needles, weight loss, hair loss and fatigue in the past. He also missed a lot of school and being with his friends. Currently he has gained some weight and height and his hair has grown back in curly! He is well enough now to attend High school on a full time basis, is in the 11th grade and an Honor student.
He is still in treatment (in the maintenance stage) and has met some wonderful friends along the way. Craig is active in his community as a volunteer at the Senior Center, helping with Meals on Wheels and he is very active with his DeMolay Chapter in St Helens, Oregon. His motto is "Cancer Sucks". Let's find a cure, so life can be lived to its fullest capacity!!!!
