About This Warrior

– Written by Caleb’s mom, Katrina

My son, Caleb, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in August of 2022. Only about 20% of children with leukemia have this form. He spent a total of 153 days in the hospital from August to April and had countless doses of chemotherapy, blood transfusions, imaging, and surgeries. He was in remission as of April, and everything was looking good.

In August of 2023, his platelet levels started to drop for no known reason. In September, the doctors decided to do a bone marrow biopsy and found out that the cancer returned. Since he relapsed, the best course of action was a bone marrow transplant. Luckily for us, his siblings are matches, and his 14-year-old brother volunteered to be his donor. Caleb is now at Stanford having chemo to prepare for transplant day. We will have to be in the Palo Alto area for three months.

We are so thankful to the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation for all the help they have given my family, from the first diagnosis to Caleb’s relapse. They have helped pay our bills, so I was able to spend more time with him at the hospital, medical bills that continue to pile up, traveling expenses for us to get back and forth to Stanford, and somewhere to stay while at Stanford. I truly don’t know what I would do without these amazing people to support not only Caleb but myself and my family during this trying time.
