Donations will be used for the treatment costs that will make Christian cancer-free again.

We were looking forward to the weekend of April 13th, 2012. Family members were coming to town to cheer Christian on at the State Science Olympiad Competition. Just as we were preparing to leave town, we were instructed to take Christian to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St. Louis by his doctor's office. Blood work that had been performed had come back abnormal; my 13-year old son was diagnosed with Pre-B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Christian is, to everyone who knows him, a loving, funny, caring young man. He is full of life and, of course, incredibly intelligent. He took the news of his diagnosis with grace and courage. Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he's preparing to win this battle against Leukemia.

While we're lucky to have insurance, it won't be anywhere near enough to cover all the medical costs that will be incurred over the next 3 1/2 years.

Christian is ready to fight. Your donations, no matter what amount, will help him win the war against cancer. When his victory is celebrated, any remaining funds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
