We light the night for survivors like Carter and all those affected by blood cancer. 🤍
In May 2019, when Carter was just two years old, his family was visiting New York City and knew Something was not right with Carter. His family rushed him to New York Presbyterian Hospital then Cornell Medical Center where he received several blood and platelet transfusions and the diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Carter’s family decided he needed to be transferred to Children's of Alabama in Birmingham, AL to continue treatment and begin chemotherapy.
Carter has been in remission since June 2019. His prognosis is good despite the harsh side effects that go along with treatment. He will end his treatment May 2022. Today Carter loves to go to school, play outside, and watch Wheel of Fortune. Carter continues to fight and support children who are going through what he is going through.
To quote Carter, “Thank you for fighting with me. I fundraise for LLS because I want other families to have support like my family has support!”
