"Jack's test results are in, wake up your little 8 year old boy and get him to the ER immediately, there is a good chance he has leukemia." .
On Tuesday evening October 1st at 10pm, Karen and Mike Cleary got the call from Jack's doctor that every parent would dread. On Wednesday morning it was confirmed that Jack had a form of leukemia called Tcell ALL, he started chemo that day.
Jack and his family are two weeks into treatment and through the grace of God this strong little 8 year old boy
has been responding well thus far.
Once he gets out of the hospital, the next 6-8 months will be outpatient, driving up to CHOC 5 days a week for treatment
. If all goes well after that, he will be on maintenance and get chemo once a month for 2-3 years.
This unexpected turn of events has life spinning at the moment while the family tries to figure out their new normal. Jack, his two older brothers, Caleb (9) and Ethan (11) and his mommy and daddy have been flooded with prayers, care and well wishes. Together we will all pray and fight side by side with them as one big family.
The outreach thus far has been amazing. With that said, there are significant financial ramifications that come along with battling cancer. If you are blessed enough to be in a position where you can donate $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or more to help this little boy and his family beat cancer. HIT THE DONATE BUTTON NOW!
