Chase’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. Your thoughts and prayers are so appreciated. We have wonderful doctors and nurses here and with God on our team, we are ready to compete in the biggest game of Chase's life!

Game On!

Chase's story began about a week before Thanksgiving when he was complaining that his lips were numb, jaw was sore and teeth hurt, all at just random times, no triggers or anything. So he went to the dentist first for ex-rays, looking for a cavity or abscess. Then he went to the orthodontist. Next we made a stop at the local clinic and thought his sinuses were causing the discomfort. All this in a period of 4 weeks, while he was attending classes at DSU and preparing for finals. When he came home after finals, the local PA took another look at him and found a large mass of lymph nodes on his neck,and a small one on his cheek, and behind his ear. This got the ball rolling with a trip to DeSmet for blood work, a stop at the Brookings ER and here we are at Sanford Children's Hospital diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. (ALL)

Game On Team Chase!

Latest Journal Update

Chemo day

Yesterday was chemo day for Chase. All good! Counts are holding steady and he is now on 25% dose. He will do blood work in 2 weeks and possibly go to 50% dose. He continues to recover from those viruses that knocked him down in February. God is good all the time.


Game On!
