On Friday, July 8th, Benjamin Cross (10 years old) was taken to the ER after routine blood work revealed some concerns. After several days of blood tests and bone marrow tests it was confirmed that Ben has acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Ben's first round of chemotherapy began on July 14th and he will be at Texas Children's Hospital in the Texas Medical Center for the next few weeks undergoing treatment. He is being taken care of by some of the best doctors at one of the largest and most comprehensive pediatric leukemia treatment clinics in the country.  Additionally, he is being prayed for by hundreds of people.  We will use this page to update you on Ben's progress and ask that you please keep him and the Cross family in your thoughts and prayers.
