This page started as a page of hope. It was easy to update in the beginning because of Carter's beauty inside and out. He's a baby, so of course he'd beat this. He touched people's hearts with his courage and fight, his good nature and determination. The ability to handle everything he had to endure and still smile and laugh. They said kids were so sick during treatment, not our Carter. So he would beat this. It was easy to update with him smiling in his wheelchair, running around in his super hero jams and those blue eyes so easy to post for you. Of course he'd beat this. How easy was it for me to post about the bone marrow transplant!? We had a match, a sibling match! A true story of heroism, little 3 year old Ivy gives brother life saving marrow, of course he'd beat this. When Carter's cancer came back after 54 days of remission it was not an easy post... And after watching him get sicker... The posts stopped all together. I am sorry for that. You've been on this journey with us and deserved to be updated, but it was too hard. Then you all starting posting yourselves! Sharing pictures and praying for Carter. You took the radio silence from me and you filled it with hope and prayer and love for Carter. If prayers alone could save him he'd have to beat this.
Today I write the hardest one yet, Carter has lost his fight with cancer today. The gratitude I have for all of you that have shared his story, donated and prayed can never translate properly into words. I feel closer to friends and family and even strangers because of the outpouring of love you shared for Carter. I need to say thank you and need you all to know how much I mean it.
Carter Tower Lolax is still the strongest boy I know. He fought harder than a grown up could have. He is beautiful and courageous. He is and always will be my hero... And now he's my angel too.
Thank you all for your generous support of Carter. The cancer is back and Carter has gone home with his family, they have stopped treatment. We will continue raising money so the Lolax family can focus their attention on Carter and his needs and their family. We thank you for all that you've done and all the support that you've provided. You provide us with the strength to keep going with your kind and positive words. We love our Carter and our village.

Handsome cut a haircut and his port was repaired! They were able to repair Carter's port so that is great news. He isn't feeling to well today though. He's been fighting a recurring fever and has an infection and is very lethargic today. He just wants to cuddle Mom. Hopefully tomorrow will be better...
Rough night last night. Around 2:3o am Carter's tube into his port broke. The problem with this is because of his infection and treatment it can't be replaced, it has to be fixed. Without the proper blood cell count he doesn't have the ability to heal. Sadly, this was human error. I feel bad for the nurse because it was such a massive mistake. That port is Carter's lifeline.
Sheesh, talk about feeling loved. You guys keep coming through with your donations on here and raffle donations and every day we are blown away. Carter has been handling the Chemo really well so far proving what a trooper he really is! I guess all we have to say is we love your faces! xoxo
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS! We promise the thank you notes are coming. Initially we tried to write to all of you personally but I've fallen a little behind. I promise they are coming. For now, please know how grateful, thankful, amazed, touched, and overwhelmed we are from such selfless acts of kindness. God Bless XOXOXO!
This is an emotional time for the Lolax family and they have a long battle in front of them. As many of you know 16 month old Carter is fighting Acute Myeloid Leukemia. His doctors have put him on an aggressive treatment plan. Ten days of high dose chemotherapy, followed by a break and then possible another ten days of high dose chemo. Many of you are asking for a place to donate money to help with the medical expenses that are no doubt accruing now. I am touched by the outpouring of support from everyone. More than anything we want your positive thoughts and prayers! So this page is for those of you who requested it, there is no pressure to donate. We appreciate all the support that has come our way the last few hard days and want you to know... Carter is a strong boy and we are fighting And we will win this battle. Thank you for fighting along with us. It's true what they say 'It takes a village to raise a child' I know that our village is prepared to fight this fight with us and WIN. We thank you for all of your calls, messages, love, and support, keep them coming they mean so much to us. We will keep updated on Carter's progress. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
