Will H.

Will’s mother writes, “My son was born on March 13, 2005 and had a normal childhood life until the 16th of January in 2013 when his life was turned upside down as he was diagnosed with T-All ( T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia ) at 7 years old. After that day life would never be the same! The next day we were meeting our new “team” at the Children’s Hospital and learning the cancer language. Before the doctors explained what should be expected, they asked me if I wanted talk about it in front of my son (the one battling) and I asked them to give me a second with him and then we could go from there. They walked out the room and I asked my son these exact words “Baby, do you want mommy to help you get through this and not tell you any details!? Or do you want to know everything that is going on!?”. He looked at me and said “Momma, Don’t keep anything from me”. I hugged him and gave him my word. The doctors came back in and they talked to us about it all from chemotherapy to radiation to side effects to everything you never wanna have to have a conversation about with your child. Not once did he complain, cry, or even ask why. He even donated some of his bone marrow and some of his blood to help future children fight. Since that day we have been dealing with chemo, radiation, spinal taps, ports, fevers, anesthesia and not once has my sons smile left his face. He is now 9 years old and in the 4th grade. He is still fighting this battle but it’s just like he told me “We will go to war, cause I’m not letting cancer win”!! This boy is my everything, my heart, my soul, my life, my inspiration, my hero.. I love you Munk Munk..”
