To know Jimmy was to love him. He was such an amazing boy. He was born on 3-23-99. He always had a great big smile. When he was little he had febrile seizures i though o.k we can deal with this and he grew out of them. On 3-5-2003 Jimmy was diagonsised with luekemia he had been sick for several weeks but we didn't have an insurance at that time. It was life changing from doctor appt, to inpatient stays, to a hole new life. In May 2006 a spinal fluid test showed that the cancer had came back in his spinal fluid so we started another 2 years of chemo and radiation. He was in the PICU for several weeks on the vent from pnemonia. In June 2007 he finished all treatment. In december he got his port out he said he had been "de-ported". He was loving life. In March 2008 the bruise started again. He had releaped for the third time it was in his bone marrow and testicular. We started the induction to get him to transplant. His sister Lindsey was a perfect match. In May while during the final ct for transplant they found a fungal infection in both of his lungs and had to have surgery to remove them. We found out 2 weeks later that the leukemia had came back again. We tried two more treatments that had started to work but his body had enough. he fought harder than any one I know. I love and miss him every day. He went to heaven on July 23, 2008.
