MATTHEW was a happy go lucky little boy who loved to ride his scooter and skateboard. He played basketball, lacrosse and swam like a fish.
On February 21, 2011 he had a Bone Marrow Aspiration procedure done and later on that afternoon I was told his diagnosis was Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Two days later Matthew had surgery to insert a port in his chest for chemotherpy.

JESSE was a healthy, happy and active 4 year old but on March 1, 2011 he was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia (Acute Lyphoblastic Leukemia). From that moment on, his families life was turned up side down. Jesse has spent the last few months in and out of the hospital fighting this disease with extensive chemotherapy and multiple blood and platelet transfusions. (often twice a week) These treatments will continue for several years.
