Bone Marrow Transplant 1/6/10
Stem Cell Transplant 3/5/11
One year follow up – shows his body in REMISSION!! 3/22/12
After 19 months of remission & cancer strikes for the 3rd time on October 8, 2012
**Colton resumed his battle with cancer on October 23, 2012 and will undergo a 3rd transplant to save his life…again….God willing
It has been 3 years, 1 month and 4 days since cancer entered our lives in a very personal way. It was on that day, that our healthy, althletic, happy 9 year old son was diagnosed with a high risk form of Leukemia (hypodiploid Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia).
Since that life altering day, our hero, Colton has battled with all the courage and faith that God has blessed him with. He has undergone many rounds of chemo, radiation as well as received one bone marrow transplant and one stem cell transplant to fight this disease off forever!
On Tuesday, October 9th….we learned that his forever has ended once again and he is back in the boxing ring with cancer! As you can probably imagine, after two transplants, his doctors are reaching the latest and therefore experimental methods to attempt a cure for him…
There are many unknowns in the days that lie ahead, but we pray that God will bless our hero with many miracles as he has done so faithfully before.
Colton started his 3rd fight on October 23, 2012….and is preparing for his 3rd transplant – to kick his cancer for good! We received news of remission at Thanksgiving which is a huge blessing and one that makes it so we can keep moving forward towards a cure! Please keep the FAITH and pray for a miracle of healing for our hero…God Bless!!
