**Mahlon'a battle with leukemia has come to an end and is now reunited with his mom in Heaven. We are all heartbroken with this but we continue to receive love and compassion from you all. Thank you for being with us every step of the way. 

We ask for thoughts, prayers, and/or donations to help the family with funeral arrangements and other expenses.  #TeamMahlon #StrongerTogether

Mahlon
is an 12-year-old boy who loves to play on Minecraft, build with Legos, anything scientific, reading, and dreams of playing soccer one day. Mahlon is a strong, brilliant young boy who has had many challenges this past year to say the least. His mother, Alaina, suddenly passed away in June, he moved from Houston to Nederland to live with his Nana & Pappy (and young uncle), and he switched schools…all while learning to cope with the loss of his mother. 
Mahlon was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on October 5, 2015 after battling several weeks of fever, a rash, and declining health that the doctors were unable to find a cause for. After his fever spiked agressivley, he was sent to the ER and life-flighted to Texas Childeren’s Hostpital in Houston. As his health declined, he still brings a smile and laugh to the face of everyone he meets.Mahlon recieved intense chemotherapy treatment starting Friday, October 9th, 2015.  Mahlon has battled leukemia for over a year now, had a 5 rounds of chemotherapy, two nasal fungal surgeries, a bone marrow transplant, eleven bone marrow biopsies, and three donor lymphoyte infusions, and still battles on! Mahlon was able to come home in July 2016 leukemia free and visits Texas Children's Bone Marrow Transplant Unit weekly. He has held strong at 90% donor cells and needs to reach 100% donor to be able to stay leukemia free!
This fund has been set up to help raise money to support Mahlon and his family with medical and travel expenses required for his treatment.
Please consider supporting Mahlon through this battle with cancer and alleviate a small portion of the financial burden at this difficult time. Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated.

Thank you to all the prayer warriors, community, friends, & family that have continued to help and praying for/with us. We are heart broken to say Mahlon's battle has come to an end, he fought hard to the very last breath. Mahlon has now been reunited with his mom in Heaven #TeamMahlon

John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”✝️

#TeamMahlon received some disheartening news last night... the leukemia blast cells have reappeared in his blood. Monday Mahlon will get his bone marrow checked out for more definite results. The doctors are being optimistic and believe Mahlon can beat this bump in the road to FULL recovery. Thank you to everyone who have been praying for him the past couple of days & through everything.❤️ Please continue to pray for Mahlon's miracle!

On Thursday, October 29th, Mahlon had his 4th lumbar puncture which went well but the nasal scope showed he had an area of dead tissue in his sinus cavity, from a fungal infection that must be removed to prevent more fungal growth. Fungus is a big concern for leukemia patients, as the body does not have infection fighting material. Antibiotics help with bacteria but fungal infections are a bit harder. Therefore Mahlon underwent surgery on Friday to have an area of nasal cavity that had dead cells (black tissue instead of pink) removed. Surgery went good but Mahlon has had to endure lots of bleeding since. To brighten his mood he got a visit from his little cousin Lorelei and then on Halloween Darth Vader stopped by!

After a rough start to Mahlon's morning with chills and an upset stomach doctors changed meds and by 10:30 he was feeling better. He got a visitor at 11:00, Ms. Sally from Heartbeats of Hope, that made his morning even better. Lil man may be missing his long hair and not feeling so good but as you can tell from the picture he is excited about his gifts and visits :)
Of Round One, his final lumbar puncture with chemo push is in the morning. Please pray all goes well.
