Jeffrey was diagnosed with Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on June 1, 2011, at the age of 2 1/2. He underwent 3+ years of treatment. He had been off of treatment for 11 months before his mom and medical team discovered he relapsed with Leukemia on July 25, 2015. They learned Jeffrey had relapsed with Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He had been off treatment for 11 months.
Jeffrey's mom, Carrie is a teacher at Hollis Elementary school where Jeffrey was due to start 1st grade on 8/31/15. Carrie has taken a leave of absence from work to provide Jeffrey with the 24 hr. care he requires while at home and frequent doctors and hospital visits. Jeffrey will have ongoing inpatient chemotherapy for the next 3 years as his doctors aggressively treat his disease.
The Hollis Elementary School Wellness team, along with other MSAD6 staff and friends of Carrie and Jeffrey have formed a fundraising team running the Maine Marathon, Half Marathon or Relay on October 4, 2015 to raise funds to support Jeffrey and his families expenses during this incredibly challanging time.
Please join our efforts to meet our fundraising goal for Jeffrey and his amazing Mom.
