Vandric “Van” West was diagnosed March 27th 2016 with ALL at the age of 2.
About a month before diagnosis Van caught pink eye from preschool. A few days later we went back to the doctor because we noticed tiny red “pimple like” bumps, where the doctor then diagnosed impetigo.Throughout all of this Van was having fever that lasted almost 3 weeks!! Doctors couldn’t figure out why so kept switching antibiotics. I finally demanded a blood test.
We weren’t even at the hospital for an hour when his pediatrician called & told us “he was going to be admitted” We were then transported to Sacred Heart of Pensacola via ambulance.
