One of George’s favorite things to do is walk 3-4 miles at World’s End. When it started to fatigue him, we blamed it on the heat. When he couldn’t do everyday tasks because he was fatigued and short of breath, he saw his doctor. After a whirlwind week of tests, doctors believed it was a form of lymphoma. While in the hospital for a lymph node biopsy, a blood smear came back more concerning and George was transported to Dana-Farber inpatient at Brigham & Women’s Hospital...the best place to be! George has now been diagnosed with a type of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. It is treatable and doctors are very optimistic.  Right now the doctors think he’ll be here for weeks but that could change.  I think this is the best way to keep updates going. George is determined and has been a Superstar! Anyone who knows George knows how friendly and charming he is so needless to say, he’s everyone’s favorite patient! Because...Everybody Loves George. 🧡
