Chase was your average, energetic, happy child with no symptoms until two weeks before his cancer diagnosis. He had become less active, more fatigued and paler. After his bath one night, he was shivering and his lips turned purple. His mother knew something was wrong and thought perhaps Chase was anemic. The following day she made an appointment with the pediatrician, who discovered that Chase’s hemoglobin was extremely low. The doctor directed Chase’s family to take him to the ER for a blood transfusion. It was at the ER where Chase’s parents received the heartbreaking news that their son had leukemia.
Every child who has been diagnosed with childhood cancer inspires us to Rally On to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures. Please join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a donation or setting up your own Rally fundraiser today.
