Our great love story started just over six years ago when we met in graduate school at the University of Oregon.  Although we had to live apart for a year after finishing school, we still found our way back to each other and were finally able to start our lives together. We bought our first house and got engaged in August, while loving every minute we were finally able to spend together. However, every great love story has its hated character.

In February Randy started having severe chest pains, but doctors kept brushing it off as costochondritis and prescribing him more pain medications. The chest pains began to be accompanied by intense night sweats, fevers, and general fatigue. Finally, we went to a walk in clinic with a long list of symptoms and the doctor finally listened to us and sent us to the emergency room where the doctors began to suspect that Randy had leukemia.
