This is the story of a young man's courage. Ronald was admitted into A I Dupont hospital on February 27,2008 for a Grade IV liver laceration from a backyard football game with his friends. For 7 weeks doctors worked vigorously to support his body's functions in efforts to allow his liver laceration to heal on it's own to avoid a large operation. On April 12, 2008 after many failed attempts at feeding Ronald from a feeding tube that goes way past his stomach into parts of the intestine the decision was made to take Ronald to surgery to remove the left lobe of his liver. The surgery was a success! After sending the left lobe for biopsy a horrifying truth was told. Ronald was diagnosed with Burkitt's Leukemia. His prognosis is better then 50% survival and cure rate! We'll share day by day Ronald's courageous battle toward coming home and coping with his disease. He gains his encouragement from kind words of friends and family. Thanks so much for visiting his site!
