Hello Austin's Army members. Today is +8 days since the transplant. For the first six days Austin did very well but now he needs some serious prayer. Due to the chemo and radiation he received prior to the transplant his body is neutropenic. He had a reaction to the platelets yesterday and is having more adverse side effects today. He has a fever, severe mouth sores, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, joint pain, and headaches. Doctors believe this is a reaction to the chemo and radiation not the new stem cells. However, he has no immune system and therefore is having a hard time fighting the various infections. Please lift him up in prayer. Thank you for your unwavering support.

Austin Thacker, 15, was diagnosed April 12, 2013 with non-Hodgkin's Diffused Mature B Cell Lymphoma. He has tumors in his head, chest, lungs, kidneys, and spinal column. His parents have limited insurance and will end up paying a sizeable portion out of pocket. The doctors are also strongly recommending that he receive a shot with each chemo treatment that will help boost his blood counts. This shot, which he will need 6-10 times, is not covered by insurance and will cost $3800 each time it is administered. Despite the challenges he faces, Austin is not defined or intimidated by his cancer. Instead, he chooses to focus on his faith, his family, his love of writing, and playing soccer. He has already begun a journal of his experiences as a cancer patient and hopes to help other kids in his situation in the future. Please consider donating and joining Austin's Army in the battle against cancer. Thank you for your help and God Bless!
