Help Cole Malone Battle Leukemia
Cole was originally diagnosed with Pre-B ALL Leukemia when he was 2 years old. After 3.5 years of chemotherapy treatment, Cole's Leukemia was gone and he and our family returned to a normal life. After nearly 5 years of being cancer free, Cole's Leukemia returned. Now 9 years old, Cole has started a new treatment plan that will either be another multi-year chemotherapy treatment plan or a bone marrow transplant.
Their are way to many people to thank individually, so for now we will simply thank you so very much to all who supported us through this crazy journey. Without your thoughts, your prayers, your kind words and assistance with our other 2 children, this would not have been possible for us. Your donations allowed us to fly back and forth countless times, have an apartment near the hospital and other important resources and allowed us to provide Cole with everything necessary to get him both physically and mentally well.
Cole's battle is far from over, however he is definitely heading in the right direction!
Cole's battle is far from over, however all is looking good so far. He is beginning to regain his strength, however his appetite is still lagging far behind. When he returns to Florida he will need to stay in isolation for a few months since the transplant wiped out all of his immunizations and his immune system needs to rebuild. We should be able to re-immunize him after about 6 months.
Cole wanted to see some snow and we certainly did get some! This winter has caused us some challenges and we welcome our return to the sunshine state.
We are so very glad we chose to come to Boston for his treatment. The hospital staff was amazing! Some of them went so far above and beyond their jobs. There are no words that can say how appreciative we are of them and we hope that we can stay in contact with some of them into the future. Cole definitely felt the love by all. Cole sat in a chair in the hall so frequently that he was deemed Mayor of the floor :)
Again thank you to all for all your support,thoughts and prayers through this long and trying journey!
His oncology numbers continue to look good as well. This is a good sign that the transplant is working. Hopefully if all continues to go well, we will be able to return Cole to Florida by the end of February.
Thank you to all for all the thoughts and prayers through this long and trying process!
We love you, Cole, and wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas!!!
