Our son Adam was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 21.
For eleven months he underwent treatment that without previous research and many patients before him, would not have survived but a few days.
Adam's cancer was very aggressive and despite an amazing effort by two teams of doctors, he lost his battle.
As many of you know, Adam put up a tremendous fight with a positive attitude and a will to survive. Throughout this journey he had time to think about what his future plans were going to be. His love of biology and chemistry and his own diagnosis lead him to realize he wanted to be a clinical pharmacist in Oncology. We need people like Adam to help those that now come after him and what doctors learned about his case. We need to continue to find answers for cures for cancer and keep our loved ones with us, happy and healthy for years to come.
Thank you for your generous love and support.
