Stevie is a 19 year old, class of 2022, Crown Leadership Academy, high school graduate. We just celebrated his big accomplishment in May. We never would have thought in a million years that 2 months later he would be diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia).
He woke up with a backache on Thursday (7/21/22). Friday he developed severe pain in his back, hips, and legs. By Saturday he could barely walk and spiked a fever. We visited the ER and they conducted blood work that showed he had Pancytopenia (low White Blood Cells, Red Blood Cells, and Platelets). Stevie was admitted to our local hospital for a Bone Marrow Biopsy that was performed on Monday (7/25/22). The initial results were delivered to us on Tuesday morning (7/26/22). “Stevie has Acute Leukemia and needs immediate treatment”….. I’ll never forget those words.
Later Tuesday evening Stevie was transferred to downtown Charleston, SC where he will receive treatment at MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital.
Last Wednesday evening we were watching baseball together. Never could we have imagined what this week would hold for us. Stevie is a strong boy and I faith he will overcome this. Please join us and Pray For Stevie!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
