Hi my name is Daymon, and I was diagnosed with Burkitt's Leukemia. It happened so fast, it all started when I was having back pains. My mom was really worried when they were getting really bad so she took me to the emergency room in Richfield. The doctor there said that my back looked fine, but there was something in my blood called platelets and that they were very low. So that was why they were worried about me. I had to have 2 more blood tests, they did not look very good so my doctor decided that I should go see a Dr. Barnett who is an oncologist at Primary Children's Hospital. I was really scared and I was in allot of pain. They decided to do a bone marrow biopsy and it is what confirmed that I had the Burkitt's Leukemia. It's hard to understand why I have to be in here, but my mom and dad said it's the best hospital to be in. They told me my body is just really sick right now and it needs special treatments called chemo to make it better. I know that there are a lot of people praying for me that love me very much, and I know I will get better but it will be a while before that happens. So this will by my own journey.

There is nothing more important than family, and we are lucky to be apart of 2 amazing ones! I also include our wonderful naigbors in that group, Amber next door who has scheduled meals to come everyother day. They have all  done so much for us this past month, they have taken care of the girls while Matt and I have been gone, they cleaned our home and been there with us through it all. I know they have prayed for us everyday and have felt our pain too. Thanks to our wonderful family for all they have done, we know that we are going to rely on them more and more through the next several months.
