Drew (Drew Bear to his family) has always been the sweetest most energetic little boy. He attends Sacred Heart Preschool and loves to play with blocks, trucks, and cars. He also loves to play with his Sissy (Amelia) more than anything. Over the Thanksgiving Holiday, Drew began to come down with mysterious high fevers in the middle of the night. He would really have a difficult time getting comfortable and bringing the temperature down. We were thinking he was just battling a virus because during the day he would perk up and seem to improve. After about 5 days of this repeating we took him to the Emergency Room at Louisville's Norton Children's Hospital. A standard blood count showed there were abnormal "blast" cells in his bloodstream. A bone marrow biopsy would need to be performed the following day. On Wednesday, November 30th (ironically the Feast Day of St. Andrew) our worst fears were confirmed. The results confirmed a diagnose of B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This is the most common form of all pediatric cancers, though still a rare diagnosis. Drew's mommy is a hospitalist at Norton Children's Hospital and he is in great hands as every physician and staff member in this hospital is staying active to make sure Drew wins this battle. Thank you for supporting Drew and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
