lat_abbott_tex0612_3696In 2011, young Tucker had some bruising on his arms and legs that looked like normal bruises for a 5 year old boy. After a week the bruising continued toworsen, he had what seemed like a sinus infection and a heat rash. On July 26th 2011 Tucker’s parents took him to his pediatrician who was very suspicious ofthe bruising and ordered blood work immediately. The next day morning we received a call from his pediatrician advising us to have Tucker in Dallas at Children’s Medical Center as soon as possible.

Our worst fears were confirmed the next day after Tucker had a bone marrow aspiration that concluded that he had ALL Type B Leukemia. Tucker’s world changed instantly.
