Diagnosis: B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Last Update: 2/6/23
Meet Brooks - a 4-year-old battling B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in March 2022. His leukemia treatment is ever-changing. He receives chemotherapy treatments through his port and spine. These treatments are brutal on his body and cause him to lose his gross motor skills and suffer from nerve pain. In November 2022, Brooks began a maintenance phase of treatment which is much easier on his body and completed at home. Brooks will continue to take his daily 6mp (chemo) and methotrexate (chemo) once a week until May 2024. His oncologist has encouraged his family to "live life as normal as possible" so Brooks will begin attending preschool twice a week.
