Jackson

Leukemia Survivor

Douglasville , GA

Jackson was diagnosed on December 31, 2016 age eight with Philadelphia positive acute leukemia. Doctor's said he wouldn't live long and transferred him to Children's Health Care of Atlanta where he spent the next year hooked to machines, receiving platelets and a horrific chemotherapy regiment.

He was given the green light to come home with high restrictions and no contact instructions. He lost many friends as he lost his hair. It hasn't been easy by any means for him, his sister or myself.

It has been a full year without chemotherapy and any sign of cancer. Jackson is my son and my HERO! We love him and are very proud of him. Can't wait until this journey is over.
