My Story

Hi, as of 2019, I am a happy 5 year old that just started preschool this past year. I love Legos, camping, dirt bikes, snuzzling with Mom and working in the garage with Dad. A few years back, I kept getting sick and the bruises on my legs would not go away. My Mom fought really hard and my awesome pediatrician helped figure out that I had Leukemia. It hasn't been terrible, my Dad quit his job to help care for me and my Mom worked super hard in Real Estate to support our family, but I got lots of extra time with them when I was feeling really bad. I think the worst thing is that my legs hurt a lot and I went bald like Dad. The nurses and doctors at the hospital are great, they make me feel happy when I'm there and I like to return the favor by showing them that I am strong and will fight hard no matter what.
