After an ongoing fever, Keegan visited his pediatrician on June 5, 2014, where blood work was performed, and results showed his white blood cell count and hemoglobin levels were low. He was immediately admitted to Pittsburgh Children's Hospital, and on June 6th he received a blood transfusion and bone marrow tap.
On June 7th, 2014 Keegan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He starts chemotherapy Monday, June 9th. He is such a loving and strong little boy and has been very brave throughout this process.
I ask you to please donate to his fund to help with his medical expenses and travel expenses for his family. Anything helps. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. His family greatly appreciates all the love and support!
This is Michela (pisani) my sister Danielle had same thing at 2 1/2 yrs old and now is pregnant with her second child. I wish you the best.
My son was diagnosed with stage 3 lymphoblastic Lymphoma at age six, 25 years ago. Now, 25 years later he is a completely healthy adult, thank God, and he is completely recovered with no relapse ever. Mike and Cetta, I know that you are just starting down this road of chemo treatments and being at the hospital every day, and you should know that while it is going to be difficult, they have made amazing advancements in Chemo in the 25 years since my son went through it, and the Lymphoma recovery rate is very high as compared to what it used to be. God bless Keegan, and you guys just stay strong and positive, that makes a huge difference in the recovery process. My heart is with you .
I survived leukemia at age five and am now 20 years old with a big future ahead of me
Praying for all of you. Keep the faith. God will give all of you the strength to pull through this. Anita Hearon Jeremy McClung
