Autumn Dalton’s Go Fund Me: Ph+ ALL Treatment

This is my brother, Adam Dalton and his family: his wife Trish, Lilly - 6, Autumn - 3 and Wyatt - 3 months. Recently, their three year old daughter Autumn was diagnosed with a rare type of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).

Autumn's Story:

Autumn is a happy, full of energy, and loving child. She loves Paw Patrol, Puppy Dog Pals and she loves to pretend she is “Anna” from Frozen.

On the night of September 20, 2019, her little legs began to hurt enough to keep her up all night. Early the next morning, September 21, after a visit to her pediatrician, she was referred to Children’s Health Care of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.  

By lunchtime that day, Autumn’s parents were given the news that her symptoms and test results indicated that she had leukemia, which they later were told it was ALL. The week following, Autumn stayed at the hospital for more tests and the start of her treatments. Adam and Trish tried to wrap their heads around just how much her life, and theirs, was going to change.  

After being discharged, Autumn went in for her first outpatient Chemo treatment and spinal tap the following Monday.  By Wednesday, October 2nd, Adam and Trish were told that Autumn has a very rare, more aggressive form of Leukemia that is mainly seen in adult, calls Ph+ ALL. In Ph+ ALL, a specific gene makes an abnormal protein that helps leukemia cells to grow, making it harder to eradicate the cancerous cells.

With this diagnosis, Autumn’s treatments will be more intense than originally planned. She will have at least three hospital stays of a week or longer over the next several months. Autumn will be given a harsh amount of chemo during these stays to battle her cancer.  Along with these additional hospital stays, the cost of uncovered medications, special dietary changes, and Trish no longer being able to work so that she can provide care for Autumn, their bills will be overwhelming.

Know that any amount you are able to give to Autumn with the battle of her life will be greatly appreciated. Please keep our family in your prayers and feel free to share this page. #AutumnStrong
