Michael was Diagnosed with High Risk B cell Leukemia Sept 2013. Our lives changed forever. Having an infant at the same time was even more difficult for us. The first year was the hardest for Michael. Daily hospital visits 4 times a week! Many 4+ days hospital over night stays. With the help of the Children's Cancer Center Michael was able to meet many kids his age fighting cancer just like him! This helped him feel like he wasn't alone. He felt very different with a port and no hair. They also have parents group meetings to help us cope with having a child with cancer. This will be our 2nd time doing the chick-fil-a 5k to benefit the Children's Cancer Center. It's a little way that our family feels we can contribute to show our whole hearted thanks.
