My Story

Our lives took an unexpected and heartbreaking turn in April 2005 when our five year old son, Clayton, was diagnosed with ALL, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Clayton experienced unexplained, recurring fevers for over a month and had two episodes of not being able to walk before he was diagnosed. Nothing, and I mean nothing, can prepare you for hearing the words that your child has cancer. Clayton endured 3 years and 2 months of chemotherapy, hospital stays, needle pokes, lumbar punctures, blood transfusions, medicines, and just missing out on his childhood. Despite all of this, Clayton had such spunk throughout his treatment and continued to make us laugh and smile. He is our forever hero and we are so blessed that he is healthy today!
