Last week, Mason Brantley, 5, from Zebulon, NC had pneumonia. On Thursday, April 4 2013, we took him to the doctor, then to the ER and from there, he was transported to UNC. On Friday, April 5, our 5 year old twin son Mason was diagnosed with (ALL) Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Type B.
ALL-B is a cancer of the white blood cells and while rare it is the most common childhood leukemia. It is 85% curable with an aggressivetreatment which has started at NC Children's Hospital.
Mason has done very well with his first rounds of chemo. The doctors have discussed a three-year treatment plan, yet the next four weeks are the most critical!
We have great faith and are determined to help Mason fight cancer. Please keep Mason and our family in your heart and your prayers! Any and all help is greatly appreciated. May God bless you and your family.
