Callahan Hare

First post: May 7, 2021
Callahan Murphy Hare was welcomed to the world on April 12th, 2021 to his loving parents Matt and Kate.  Kate had a rough delivery that lead to an injury requiring immediate NICU attention. While in the NICU, additional blood work was done that returned concerning high white blood cell counts that required transfer to Nationwide Children’s hours after his birth for further testing and consultation with Hematology/Oncology. 

By 19 hours of life,  doctors identified that Callahan has Infant B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and began his treatment plan before he was 48 hours old.  While this cancer is common in older children, congenital leukemia (developed in utero) it is very rare, approximately 1 in 5 million. 

The Hares are tackling this diagnosis with optimism and hope as they navigate what will be a two-year treatment plan, with Callahan completing at least the first two phases of his treatment in-patient at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH.
