**** ADDED NOTE ****
Hi everyone! While Barrett continues channeling his Lovett wrestling skills in to whooping cancer, his sweet friends Kat Williams and John Courtland had a wonderful idea! While it is unlikely anyone would be a match for Barrett directly, we highly encourage anyone who wants to care for other people like Barrett to join the bone marrow registry. The process is unbelievably easy and painless (you just swab the inside of your mouth) and the registry kit is sent directly to your house.
This disease is a massive jerk, and the bigger the registry gets, the more people like Barrett can receive the care they need to crush it like he will!https://join.bethematch.org/
**** Barrett's Story ****
As you may have heard, our friend, Barrett Nichols was recently diagnosed with Acute Leukemia. Leukemia is a scary word, but the doctors are extremely optimistic as he begins treatment at one of the best leukemia centers in the world: Emory University Hospital. Treatment for leukemia has come an extremely long way in the last 10-20 years, and the facts that Barrett is young, healthy, and an all-around fighter lends a tremendous advantage in helping our friend beat down cancer.
Barrett and his doctors are working to figure out his treatment plan, but this site will be used to share the clinical updates as they unfold and develop. Barrett, Lauren, Jack and Jane are abundantly humbled by the outreach of love, prayer, and support they have received in the past few days. Feel free to send encouragement and thoughts directly their way, but please utilize this site to receive all clinical updates and treatment plans so that their time and energy can be spent kicking cancer's a$$. Updates will be posted under the "Journal" section of the site.
As opportunities to help develop, they will also be included on the calendar, but if you have any specific questions about visiting Barrett or additional ways to help please reach out to Marti Munford at Marti.Munford@gmail.com.
