"Chase-ing" the Cancer Away

$9,310 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 101 people in 47 months
Composed by friends of the Wheatley family.

Last Wednesday on September 2nd Chase Wheatley’s parents took their son to the doctor because he was feeling lethargic and was very pale. The doctor took blood samples, and recognized the white blood cell count was extremely high. His doctor immediately notified John Hopkins Hospital that his patient was being sent over for further testing. The doctor told Mark and Kathy that they needed to take their 12 year old son to the emergency room at Hopkins. Chase was admitted to ICU so they could stabilize his condition. With further testing they diagnosed Chase with leukemia.  After multiple blood transfusions, Chase received his first chemo treatment on September 4th. The journey to a full recovery will be a three year process for the Wheatley family.

Kathy and Mark Wheatley are the parents of 4 children….Taylor age 15, Samantha age 14, Olivia age 13 and of course Chase age 12. The only thing that Mark and Kathy have asked for from their friends and family members are our prayers. We know that they are going to need a lot more help than that to get them through this very trying time in their life.

A portion of the medical treatments and medication will be covered by their insurance, but the Wheatley’s will incur a significant amount of medical expenses.  Parking, transportation to and from the hospital and meals while he goes in and out for chemotherapy treatments will continue until he is in remission. In addition to medical, travel and parking expenses, in order to assure a healthy environment at home between hospital stays, they will need to make some changes within their home to accommodate Chases weakened immune system.

Many family and friends have asked, “what can I do, how can I help”.   We have established this page as a way to help to give some financial relief to Mark and Kathy as they focus on a long road towards Chase’s successful recovery.

Please continue to pray and thank you for your donation.
