Jonathan’s Story

Site created on January 25, 2020

Hello everyone! Welcome to my CaringBridge website. 

This site was recommended to me by a new friend who has been really supportive during my whole "journey”. If you don’t know who I am, my name is Jonathan Godlewski. In April I was diagnosed with Leukemia (CML). My cancer was in check for a good bit but late August I went into Blast Crisis and was put into the hospital at St. Jude Peoria. I was in and out of the hospital and a place called the Family House in Peoria for about a month. I then got more complications and was put in the hospital for about 4 months straight. I haven’t been home in almost 7 months, and it looks like I won’t be back for at least another 5 if plans go right and I get to do my bone marrow transplant at St. Jude Memphis some time soon.

Newest Update

Journal entry by Jonathan Godlewski

First Journal entry so lets make this positive!

News is today I finally was able to leave the hospital and stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Peoria. I have been feeling really well (knock on wood) and have been really happy.

I have started this site to give you all updates and also maybe help my family. Money is really tight and I think this could be a good way to raise money for them. I also have been trying to make an online business to make money so I can help my family (and also buy a switch for me and my sister who love to bond over it). My wish list: (

For now I'm just happy I'm with my family at this temporary house. I'm going to post here as much as I can, this site is used to reach as many people as possible and give them updates on my health so instead of looking out for Facebook stuff (I still might post there sometimes) but I think there will be more updates here so look out!

You all are so nice and I love you <3
