Nathan's Fight Against Leukemia

Nathan is a 5-year-old boy who absolutely loves all things that involve playing.  He loves to play with his brother Aiden, who may be his favorite person in the whole world alongside Mommy, Holly and Daddy, Terrance.  Nathan loves playing outside and is so lucky to be able to watch hot air balloons take off from his back yard!  According to Mommy, Nathan cannot just walk, he has to run, a great testament to just how active he is!  He is a sweet boy who has inherited Mommy’s sarcastic attitude and Daddy’s sense of humor.  He is being raised in a home that values the bonds of family, friends, and community as well as the praising of and trust in God. 

Nathan has recently been diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  He is currently receiving intravenous chemotherapy once a week and following-up with his doctor every Friday to see if he might need an extra push of chemotherapy for that week.  The goal of this first phase of treatment is to get the leukemia into remission.  He will undergo this routine for the first 29-days and then his doctors will assess his response to the treatment.  Once remission is achieved, Nathan will enter the second phase of treatment which includes chemotherapy for several more months to continue to reduce the leukemia cells in his body.  The third phase of treatment is a maintenance phase and can be started after it has been determined that the leukemia continues to remain in remission.  The maintenance phase will require Nathan to take certain medications to keep the leukemia in remission. 

Nathan and his family have a long road ahead of them. Our goal is to provide them with as much support as possible.  The donations received will go directly to Nathan and his family to help cover the cost of his medical treatments.  Easing this financial burden will allow Holly, Terrance and Aiden to continue to focus on Nathan and his fight against leukemia.  We appreciate any donation as we know they will all be sent with love and support from you to Nathan and his family.  Mahalo!
