5-year-old boy takes final dose


Featured Promise Story
“My 5-year-old boy just got done fighting leukemia. For now, he has won. Tons of people promised to help us with stuff but never did. I’ll never do that same thing to anybody.

The blue medication [right] was the most important one, it was his FINAL dose of medication during his treatment. We all watched it flow until it was empty, then we celebrated at 11:10 pm by toasting with bottles of Pepsi.”

Promises matter. A supporter named Jeremy shared this story with us. We hope only the best for Jeremy, his son and their family.
