James was diagnosed at the age of 3 in 2004 with ALL Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He went through 38 months of treatment at the Children’s Hospital in Denver under the wonderful care at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders and attending physician Dr. Brian Greffe. James finished chemo and maintenance in 2nd grade in 2007 at the age of 7. He was in remission for 20 months and nearly 5 years to the day – August 19th 2009, his relapse was discovered on his scheduled check up. James went back into chemotherapy and without a sibling bone marrow match, this was the only option. After a long 10 months of treatment, James passed on May 25, 2010, several months shy of his 10th birthday. Today James would be 15 years old and a sophomore in High School! We as a family do everything we can to keep his spirit very much alive in our family and continue to pay forward hsi goodness that he was able to impose on others.
