Nate, and his brother and mother left their home on Oahu to visit Colorado. We were moving from Oahu to Germany. Nate had a cough the last week on the island which we thought was caused from the VOG. After landing in Colorado the cough continued. On June 8th, 2013 Nate and his mom went to urgent care for the cough. Nate was diagnosed that night with leukemia. Dad flew in. Our things were eventually shipped to Colorado where we are living while Nate receives treatment. The winter of 2013 brought lots of time in the hospital, but also Nate got to see his first snow and fell in love with skiing.
