Jack McMillian Jack's Journey

First post: May 26, 2022 Latest post: May 10, 2024
Welcome to Jack's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. This journey for Jack will be one that needs a lot of support, love, and prayers. We know that everyone will be curious about the diagnosis and treatment as well as the needs for the family. Here is where you will find all of that information.

If you would like to donate to the family, please use the following Venmo account to ensure that the donations go directly to Sara and not to the Caring Bridge site. While any donation is appreciated, the Tributes for Caring Bridge go to the company in honor of Jack and not to the family. Here is the Venmo account to use: @Sara-McMillian-2

On Wednesday the 25th Jack was taken to the doctor to check out his leg pain that he had been having for a couple of days. After running through an exam and being checked over, the doctor sent the family to Wesley Hospital to be admitted for more testing, the mention of leukemia was talked about but was not confirmed just yet. Today after some more labs were drawn and visits from the oncology team, it is confirmed that Jack does have a form of leukemia. There will be more testing on his bone marrow to determine if he has ALL or AML. Please be praying for ALL, this type of leukemia has a very high chance of being cured quickly through treatments that are not as invasive as AML.  Right now it is hard for Jack to get comfortable enough to sleep so prayers for some peace and comfort and lots of sleep are also appreciated.

Jack was able to have a very special visitor today, a sweet golden retriever! While Sara and Heath are taking notes and listening to the doctors, the nurses are keeping Jack smiling. 

As more information is available, we will keep this site updated with news and pictures. At this time prayers are the most needed item on their plate as they wait to learn more about Jack's diagnosis and treatment plan.
