Tim Welch Tim's Leukemia Journey

First post: Jun 19, 2019 Latest post: Mar 1, 2020
Thank you friends and family for visiting this site.  It is a good way for us to keep you updated.  As most of you know Tim was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on March 1, 2019.  He received induction chemotherapy at Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton where he was taken care of by an amazing team on C4 Hematology.  He was in remission as of April 2 although with ALL,  treatment isn't over.  It just meant he continued on with chemo and radiation until they could arrange for a stem cell transplant. Due to his higher risk factors for relapse it was decided a stem cell transplant was his best chance for a permanent cure.  It has the greatest chance for success if done during the first remission.  Thankfully a matching and willing donor was found.  We will forever be grateful to this person, where ever they are in the world.  One day we hope to meet them.  June 27th will be the day he receives his new cells and begins his journey back to health.
