Super Klay's Fight with Leukemia

Donation protected
On June 20th, I took our 2 year old son, Klay to the emergency room. There he was directly admitted to the Oncology/Hematology Floor.

He was officially diagnosed June 26 with Acute Myleoid Leukemia. We found out a couple days later that his leukemia has a gene mutation called MLL or KMT2A. It makes his cancer very high risk and extremely hard to treat.

Klay went into remission after 2 rounds of chemo. Unfortunately, September 17, we found out he had relapsed.

September 20, we came to St. Jude to try to get him to remission so he could get a bone marrow transplant. 

We have tried several options, but unfortunately, Klay's cancer is refractory and so aggressive. 

We found out last Thursday, October 15, that Klay's cancer is one of the worst his oncologist has ever seen. It is extremely fast growing which makes it worse. Our oncologist said some kids can live 6m-12m...but he doesn't believe Klay will live that long.

We were trying one option and it unfortunately, isn't working either. We are currently trying to get into the NK trial in St. Louis. This and another drug called Mylotarg are our last options. The goal now is to try to extend Klay's life.

We want to try to raise money so Keagan, Klay's dad can be off work with us during this time. We know we don't have long left and we want him to be with us as much as possible. 

We also want to try to raise money to take Klay and his 2 sisters to Disney to see Mickey Mouse. His favorite. We want to make as many memories as possible during this time.

If you could keep Keagan, Klay, Klay's 4 year old sister Brylee and 5 month old sister, Elsie in your prayers we would appreciate it greatly.❤

Thank you all for the love and support! ❤
