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!

Chemo treatments can't stop buck fever

Even shooting left handed because his port is on the right side, Chase was able to shoot a nice buck on Saturday. It was great that he could enjoy the hunting excitement with his dad, Cole and Drew.

It is also great that he has his next chemo after Thanksgiving. He asked for a reprieve from steroids so he could enjoy family and food without burning through so much insulin. In exchange for this blessing, he will have chemo on Dec. 3 and Dec.23.

Hopefully, his arm situation will clear up soon. It is still about the same.

Special prayer request for Anthony. He is a friend and classmate of Chase's who is undergoing surgery today to remove a cancerous spot. We are praying for a successful surgery with no complications. Pray for the family as they wait.

Fill your hearts with an attitude of gratitude this week!

Game On!

How great is that - doesn't look like you have any snow - we do but warming up so all will disappear. Chase so happy you went deer hunting and that looks like a pretty nice one. You should feel good for Thanksgiving so eat up. God is good and so is your wonderful family.

This Thanksgiving I am so thankful to hear that Chase is doing o.k. and will pray that his chemo will go o.k. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. This is my prayer for you.. I will also be praying for your friend Anthony.
I love you!!
Happy Thanksgiving to your family!!!
