Blood work on July 18, 2016 ultimately resulted in a diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) at Levine Cancer Institute here in Charlotte. The plan for a four month treatment with azacitidine to be used as a bridge to a bone marrow transplant aiming for cure began Monday August 8th, 2016. Our son, Cameron, and his wife, Raquel, have been more of a tremendous blessing and support than we could ever have imagined or asked. Cameron has delayed his graduation from medical school for a year so he can split his time between Charlotte and New York during the treatment. All decisions are made by our team of four. How can you help? The power of prayer! Specifically, for no adverse side effects of any medications, for the best possible bone marrow match among Chris' brothers, Shawn and Mark, or Cameron, and for a safe and effective bone marrow transplant followed by the induction of a durable long-term remission or cure.
