Dominic Priester Dommy's Story

First post: Nov 8, 2021 Latest post: Jul 5, 2022
In the early hours of Halloween, leukemia got some terrible news: it was messing with the wrong kid. Dominic Priester is fiercely strong. His parents love a good fight. His brother can turn any frown upside-down. And the community around him - all of you reading this - are unwaveringly supportive. Cancer, we feel sorry for you.
Dominic's next few years will be filled with playing, laughing, and goofing off. But they will also include chemo, spinal punctures, yucky medicine, and lots of trips to Lurie Children's to get rid of his B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Thank you for following his story and cheering us on. Your support is carrying us through this. 

Many of you have asked how you can help. Luckily, he has plenty of hot wheels cars and crafts to keep him busy. What he really needs help with is the boring stuff - medical bills, prescriptions, parking, gas, etc, especially because mama will be taking some time off work as we get adjusted to this new reality. 

If you would like to help, please visit Dommy's GoFundMe at or click "Ways to Help" on CaringBridge (please note that 'tributes' are donations to CaringBridge, not Dominic's treatment). 

We got you, Dommy!
