My Story

Kevin was a beautiful, happy, smart, and curious boy. He loved playing his guitar, football, and he especially loved being around his family and friends. He is the bravest person I've ever known. His mom and I could not have prayed for a better son. On July 6th, 2002, Kevin was diagnosed with Acute Mylogenous Leukemia. Throughout his year long battle with AML, we never once saw him feel sorry for himself - he just knew that everything would be alright in the end. He underwent seemingly countless trips to UNM Hospital in Albuquerque, NM (225 miles each way) to receive chemotherapy, spinal taps, bone-marrow aspirations, and a host of other medical treatments. He was in remission for only a couple of weeks when he relapsed in January of 2003. Our only hope for his survival was a bone-marrow transplant which he received at Cook Children's Hospital in March of 2003, his donor was an anonymous umbilical cord. His BMT took and everything looked to be going good until he caught a virus that his fragile new immune system just could not fight off. Kevin passed away on July 19th, 2003. Please help put an end to these evil diseases that hurt so many families - give generously - thank you and God bless. We miss you buddy - Love, Mom, Dad and Ryan
