Friends of the Bennetts uniting to raise money to help them and son Oliver as he battles against leukemia and treatment that gos with it.

Oliver was diagnosed with Pre B ALL, a type of Leukemia when he was 17 months old. It came rather abruptly after he had been feeling sick and no one could figure out what was wrong.

After undergoing some very tough times, Oliver had seemed to have beaten the disease and become a normal little boy bringing joy to his parents.

Three weeks ago, what started out as a normal check up and spinal tap, came back with results that showed Leukemia cells in his spinal fluid, a bad sign.

A week ago, another spinal tap was performed to make sure. The results...not so great. It turns out that instead of the bad cells disappearing, they are multiplying due to a bad chromosome that is causing it.

The treatment to help with the current situation will be more intense and longer.

We wish Oliver the best and hope we can help support the cause as much as we can and allow his family to have one less worry and lots of encouragement as they take on the fight against the disease and focus on his health rather than bills.

Although they have insurance, the money raised will go towards things that are not covered by insurance, like travel, medicines, etc as well as helping with everyday expenses that come up while dealing with the situation.
