CHASE: Age 10
Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Chase developed a fever in June 2018 and he had lost some weight. We treated him at home like any other fever with Advil and rest. The fever would come down and then spike right back up again when the Advil wore off. On June 15 we decided to go McMaster Children’s Hospital emergency room. They ran blood tests and Chase had a bone marrow biopsy and on June 19 he was diagnosed with ALL.
