Everett and his family were living in Seoul, South Korea, when Everett began experiencing several days of fevers over the course of a month. After four doctor visits, a blood test was finally run, showing that Everett was anemic. Further tests revealed blast cells which his family knew indicated cancer, but an official diagnosis could not be given in Korea. Everett and his family would need to fly to Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii after Everett became stable enough to travel. They eventually took a medical evacuation flight to Okinawa where they waited out a typhoon before continuing on to Hawaii. Everett’s family recalls this being the longest 10 days of their lives. On October 9, 2018, their worst fears were confirmed, and Everett was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma.

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.
