Welcome to Morgan's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. On Dec. 5, 2018 Morgan came home from work complaining of leg pain. By Thurs. the pain was so severe he left work and went to the doctor. They ruled out blood clots and sent him home with the diagnosis of a strain, perscribing ice, elevation and ibuprofen. When his leg showed no improvement and began to develop bruising on the front of the shin we made the decision to go to the Alaska Regional Emergency room on Sunday December 9. We are thankful for Dr. Levy's care and attention for calling in specialists and quickly diagnosing Morgan with Acute Onset Leukemia. We took a LifeMed Flight to Swedish Hospital in Seattle.
