In January when a flu-like illness would not subside, his parents were concerned. Bloodwork revealed something they couldn’t imagine. - acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

He needs a bone marrow transplant. There are no other proven treatments available. He’s an only child and does not have a related donor. He will need a stranger to step up and register.
