The Wagner family is uniting to raise funds for our brother Dale's (Pedro) fight against Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Please show your support!

Dale is a lifelong resident of Annapolis, Maryland who attended Annapolis Area Christian School for 6 years and the remaining years in the Anne Arundel County Public School System. He is the loving son of Judith Wagner, (the late Dale E. Wagner who passed from liver cancer), baby brother to five sisters Barbara, Anita, Carolyn, Michele, and Melissa, an excellent father to Zoe and Samuel, avid fisherman, boater and an all around great guy.

From an early age, Dale strived hard to achieve success. At 16, he started working full time at a computer technology company, learned everything from the bottom up and at 18 helped grow a IT Consulting Company in Annapolis. The company built up to a million dollar plus organization over a 12 year period. Two years ago he joined a new successful computer company and moved onto other opportunities.

In October 2011, Dale went to a routine doctor's visit to follow up on a sinus infection and doctors soon discovered he had Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He was immediately admitted into John Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center where he undergone extensive inpatient chemotherapy over 4 months experiencing tremendous side effects. On Monday June 4, 2012 after 2 1/2 months of remission, Dale received a phone call that the Leukemia returned into the immediate stage. On Thursday, June 14, 2012, he was readmitted into John Hopkins Kimmel Center undergoing a second experimental clinical trial with 3 new drugs followed by intense chemotherapy with the hope of remission to receive a bone marrow transplant in early August 2012. Dale has become increasingly overwhelmed with the various medical procedures and drugs, medical expenses, mental anguish and separation from his loved ones. As one of his older sisters it breaks my heart to see him suffer and what lies ahead in his uncertain future. His family and friends love him so much and just want him to have the opportunity for a happy normal life.

If anyone could please offer a donation regardless of the amount, the family would greatly appreciate any assistance.

Please feel free to forward this link to any individuals, groups, organizations or churches that would be interested in helping his survival. If you have a facebook or twitter page please post for support as well.

Thank you everyone in advance and God Bless everyone.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONE AT ANYTIME. WE NEVER EVER THOUGHT THIS WOULD HAPPEN TO OUR BROTHER.
