James Whisler James Beats Leukemia!

Our sweet 4 year old James was diagnosed with T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on January 22, 2022.   A normal level of white blood cells should be between 8k-12k, but when we got admitted into Texas Childrens--James was at 350k.  We've learned that we'll have 8-9 months of weekly chemo treatments, followed by another two years of monthly chemo treatments.  T-cell is of course one of the rarer types of Leukemia, with acute meaning it comes on fast.  James is also special in that he apparently has the rarest blood type as well:  AB-.  But thankfully, we've been told that this is a CURABLE disease and we've had so many reach out to donate blood and platelets for him!  We are putting James in God's hands and we know that he has so much more life and smiles to give.
