John Paul’s Story

Site created on February 27, 2021

Welcome to John Paul's CaringBridge Website. 

John Paul has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, Mixed Phenotype Acute Leukemia (MPAL).
He will require a bone marrow transplant in the future. We are asking anyone who is willing to be tested to be a donor to follow this link to get more information: Join The Registry (  (

We ask that you pray for John Paul's healing and for strength and encouragement for his family. Please join us in fervently praying for an exact bone marrow match.

We will use this site to provide updates. We also ask that you use this site to send messages of hope. As needs arise and help is needed, we will make that known here.

Journal entry by Julie Barclay

Hi everyone. Busy day today, but great news. JP"s fever has been non-existent for 24hrs now. Praise God!  He also had an ANC today...only 20, but his WBC count was also up a few tics. So looks like he is recovering. Now we are praying that his bone marrow shows no cancer in a week or two when the docs look next. Thnks for the prayer and well wishes. They are all so appreciated
God Bless, Tim
