Henry’s Story

Welcome to Henry's CaringBridge site. I've created it to keep friends and family updated about Henry's treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

P.S. We hate cancer and hope you feel the same.

Latest Journal Update

One Year (and Counting)

Hi, friends.


It is the eve of Henry's one-year transplant anniversary and we got GREAT news today that there is no sign of leukemia in his marrow. When I explained to Henry that the doctors couldn't find any leukemia in his bones and that he beat cancer, he said, "I couldn't have beat cancer without my family". That may be true, but we couldn't have helped him beat cancer without the support of all of our extended family and friends lifting us up through the darkest days of this process. It has been a heckuva year and it's a lot to reflect on, but for now, we're just grateful.


All our GFALC friends are wearing their Team Henry shirts tomorrow to celebrate the milestone and we couldn't be more thrilled with how this "birthday" turned out.


Counting our Blessings,

Misty
