Jerry was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) on November 25, 2017.  He was admitted to Spectrum-Butterworth in Grand Rapids on Monday, December 4th and started chemotherapy on Tuesday, December 5th.  He completed his first round of chemo on 12/9 and began his second round on 12/15.  If all goes according to plan, Jerry will be home for Christmas.  The hope is future chemo treatments will still be inpatient at Spectrum but the amount of time he will stay there after each treatment will shorten.  The treatment plan states Jerry will have chemo treatments for 6 months which will knock the leukemia into remission.  Please keep Jerry, Peggie, and the entire family in your prayers.
