Caleb is a 15 year-old star three-point shooter for his high school special education basketball team. He is the middle child with four siblings surrounding him. Caleb, a huge Chicago sports fan, is a courageous, kind and compassionate young man with a big smile and infectious laugh! Unfortunately, we haven't heard much of that infectious laugh since he was diagnosed with T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on June 19, 2015. Since then he has been at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago. Caleb has battled sepsis, a blood clot, 2 bowel resections, a lung biopsy and aspergillus fungus in his lungs and brain. In spite of daily headaches, Caleb is courageously persevering! He is in rehab and always has a smile to offer. Let your smile be infectious with him!

Just prior to Caleb's diagnosis, his father, Jon, lost his job, so they would greatly appreciate any financial help as they face mounting medical bills. Would you please consider helping to support Caleb and his family in the long journey ahead?

The Leopoldo Family is very grateful for your enduring support, love, encouragement and prayers for Caleb!
