Kekoa Strong

Late Saturday evening Kekoa was taken to the ER after having extreme bruising, fever, and vomiting. His mom Lisa, who has three other boys, knew that something was not right. Early Sunday morning after a long night of blood tests, scans, and x-rays it was determined that Koa was anemic with a high white blood cell count and bleeding from multiple parts of his brain. He was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) on the morning of April 19th.


Kekoa is currently in the ICU at Lucile Packard at Stanford Children’s Hospital. He is surrounded by an amazing team of Doctors and Nurses that are working tirelessly to get the swelling in his brain down and to reduce the white blood cell count in order to stabilize him.


If you know Koa, you know that he is a very intelligent 8 year old with a fiery personality. He has three older brothers who love and protect him. The Pagans are an amazing family who need your love and support now more than ever. We are asking for any help as they go through a very hard time. Koa has a long road to recovery and we are grateful for all the love that surrounds this family. The Hawaiian word Imua means to move forward with strength. Today we say IMUA KEKOA!
