Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. 
 Cade was a healthy college student at Boise State until one day he developed a rash that wasn’t a rash but his capillaries under the skin burst causing small purple spots.  His blood tests showed that he had a platelet count of 3,000. Normal platelet count is 150,000-300,000. Platelets are what keep us from bleeding . So he has very little ability to clot. A week later Cade’s white blood cell count dropped to nearly nothing. This means he also has no immunity from infection. After several bone marrow biopsies  it was detirmined that Cade has a very rare form of severe Aplastic Anemia. 
 Cade’s own immune system destroyed his bone marrow. Before Cade could get somewhere to get treatment he went into septic shock and was on life support.  We were told it was a miracle that he survived. Cade has had daily scares with high fevers and abscesses. He was taken off of life support about a werk ago and is now at the Huntsman Cancer Care Center for treatment of his Aplastic Anemia. Cade has a tough race ahead but he is detirmined to reach that finish line and be able to return to living life fully.
