About This Warrior

Meet Ian, another brave cancer warrior who also has Down syndrome. Ian was diagnosed with B-Cell Leukemia in April 2022. He was 24 years old and had just started working again after the pandemic and was looking forward to moving out on his own. Instead, he was rushed into intense treatment that included chemotherapy, immunotherapy, countless hospital stays and outpatient infusions. He will complete his treatment sometime in September 2024. It’s a long road…

“I have learned that I am brave, which defines me as a warrior. I’ve had a positive mindset through this.”

The NNCCF was there from the start, delivering a care package to help Ian and his family know they were not alone on this journey. They’ve been there every step of the way since then. Ian got to meet one of his favorite sportscasters, Mike Krukow from the SF Giants at the NNCCF’s “Take Swing at Cancer” event last year and was well enough in the fall to attend a game in San Francisco with his family. NNCCF made this all possible!

With the Foundation’s continued support, Ian’s parents can provide the care Ian needs as he navigates the last months of his treatment and makes plans for his life after cancer.

One of his dreams is to travel to Egypt one day to explore the Valley of the Kings. He’s looking forward to dancing again too. He’s a big fan of Micheal Jackson and has performed in a number of talent shows dancing to MJ’s music. He’s just started learning to play the ukulele, and continues his yoga practice.
