Cole's Battle against Leukemia

$8,015 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 85 people in 37 months
On Saturday, June 4 2016, Cole was taken to hospital after experiencing some bleeding coming from his ear and having little red spots on his body. The doctor did blood work, and told Carrie he had leukemia. He was immediately sent to Edmonton Stollery Children's Hospital. He has 7 months of intensive treatment, and 3 years of treatment at home/sometimes hospital. He was diagnosed with high risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The diagnosis was scary and unexpected, and could've become fatal within weeks. He has had a bone marrow extraction, a spinal tap to ensure there was no leukemia cells present in his spinal fluid, and also received a semi-permanent IV that is implanted in his chest. He is expected to experience many side effects from the chemo, such as losing his hair, amongst many other side effects, and potentially very serious side effects. He has a long road to recovery ahead of him.

Cole is a happy 3 year old boy who loves Minions, Paw Patrol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Lego. He loves watching netflix and riding motorcycles with his grandpa. Cole is a cheerful, funny boy who loves playing outside with his big brother Chris, who suffers from Autism. Cole attends a preschool program called Brighter Beginnings. He will be turning 4 on August 27th. 

Let's help his family alleviate some stress so they have the ability to be by his side during this difficult time. His parents Codi Baptiste and Carrie Gallop have been with him in Edmonton since the moment they found out and plan to be by his side every step of the way. Carrie was about to start a new job, which was going to afford them the ability to do the house maintenance they need, as well as cover other expenses that are coming up. She is now unable to take the new job, as Cole needs her by his side. Please know your donations will go to good use, and will not be taken for granted. 

Thank you all for your amazing support and prayers! It is truly appreciated!

Cole has been doing really well with his chemo treatments, and he is through the first phase of treatment! He is now going into maintenance therapy. He still has a long road and a lot of chemo to go, but he will have fewer trips to the hospital. It is a good milestone! Around October 2019 he should be completing his treatments. We are so thankful to everyone for their prayers and generosity!
Cole enjoys going to Chuck E Cheese on his trips to Edmonton

Cole had sporadic chemo in September, and only had to make day trips once or twice a week. Cole was scheduled to be admitted back into hospital for rigorous chemo a couple of weeks back, but his blood counts weren't recovered enough to start yet. He has been admitted to hospital today, and he will start a 24 hour chemo in the morning, along with having a spinal tap with chemo drugs injected into his spinal fluid, and starting oral chemo again. He will then spend the rest of the week staying hydrated and flushing the chemo out of his body. He will likely get to go home sometime on the weekend, provided there aren't any complications. He will get to have a week at home, and then he will be back in hospital for another week to do this again. Special thanks to everyone donating and helping to raise money to support him! ❤️

Cole is through his first phase of treatment, and is doing well. His leukemia is currently in remission, meaning it is currently undetectable under a microscope. He is about to start the next phase of treatment starting next week and that will run for the next 6 months. This next 6 months is going to be very hard on Cole, with multiple chemotherapy drugs to keep the leukemia from returning. During this time, most of his treatment will be outpatient, so they will be finding a place to stay in Edmonton. They are incredibly grateful for the donations that have been received thus far, and appreciate the continued support going forward. It is going to be a long journey for Cole!
