Christian was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of leukemia the day after his 13th birthday. His treatment included 2 bone marrow transplants, 3 relapses, almost 17 months inpatient, radiation, lots of chemo and transfusions, surgeries, and liver failure caused by Graft vs Host Disease. He fought for his life like a warrior even though his battle was extreme. Words can’t convey how proud of Christian we are for battling cancer with everything he had until he took his last breath on December 29, 2007. We want Christian to be remembered not for his cancer or battle, but for the inspiring character he displayed in spite of his disease. He was kind, compassionate, humble, humorous, loving, respectful, determined, and had a strong faith in God. We miss him so much and always will, but we know he is happy and healthy in heaven. We thank God for Christian’s short but extremely impactful life! His legacy lives on through family, friends, and the foundation that was started because of him.
