Ethan will be admitted to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on Dec. 11 for a peripheral blood stem cell transplant. The treatment starts with 10 days of chemotherapy and immune suppressants, followed by the transplant, which is a four-hour blood transfusion. Ethan will be isolated in the hospital for 4-6 weeks, then will be in isolation near the hospital for approximately 8-10 weeks . When he returns home, he will be in isolation for at least eight more months. We are very grateful for the overwhelming support we have received. Please continue to pray for us during this long, difficult journey.
