Carter’s Road to Recovery

This is our sweet Carter, who was recently diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Carter is an amazing little boy who is always full of laughter and smiles. Carter is currently receiving care at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, which is a ways from the family’s home in Mt. Pleasant, MI. He immediately started receiving chemotherapy treatments and had to have multiple blood transfusions. Even through all of this, you can still find a smile on Carter’s face. He will need to stay in the hospital for a period of time and once he is strong enough to go home, he will still need to return for weekly treatments. Carter is such a tough little guy and comes from a long line of survivors, but he will need lots of prayers and support while he works towards remission.  

During this time, Carter’s family will incur many medical and travel expenses. There has already been an overwhelming amount of prayers and compassion, that is appreciated more than words can say. The most important thing we ask for is continued prayers and support.  Many family and friends have already offered financial support, and any contribution is much appreciated. Even the smallest amount helps.

Carter’s parents (Mandy and Kyle Piglowski), family and friends are extremely devastated to see him go through this battle, but with lots of prayers and support we know he will make it through. He has already shown amazing and strength and optimism while fighting this battle. Please help us support Carter on his road to recovery. Any donations made will be sent directly to Mandy and Kyle. They will be checking in and providing us with updates on Carter recovery.

Hi everyone, this is Mandy posting. We are overwhelmed by the amount of support we have received! Thank you all so much for donating, sharing, sending supportive messages, and praying! Words cannot describe how much we appreciate everything. Carter is home now, and I have taken a leave of absence from work to take care of him. He's been mostly resting and taking it easy, as the chemo makes him pretty sick. But of course he is still smiling, as always! Our most recent update is that the Leukemia is still making up 11%-14% of his bone marrow. This is higher than we were hoping, but his doctor says she is still happy with it, as we started out at 85%. Please continue praying for Carter to have the strength of the super hero that he is! Again, thank you all so much!

Instead of sending flowers from our children, Nikki, Tara and Corey, for Clarice Sperry, we are donating to Carter's fund. We all believe that is what your Grandma would want.
