He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, when he was
3 and a half years old. He went through his treatments for 2 and a
half years, and relapsed in his spinal fluid in 1998. Adam was put
back on intense chemotherapy, which eventually put him in the ICU on
a ventilator in an induced coma. By the grace of God, Adam got
better, and went into another 2years of remission on maintenance
chemotherapy, and off treatment for a year. He relapsed again in his
spinal fluid in March of 2002, and underwent a unrelated bone marrow
transplant on June 24 that year. Again God carried him through. Once
Adam asked the dr. who was doing his spinal tap if he believed in
God. The dr. said "Who's God?". He was joking, but Adam did not
think it was one bit funny, and told him that he didn't want a dr.
that didn't believe in God doing his spinal tap. The dr. saw that
Adam was very serious, and when Adam told him that he prayed before
every spinal tap, the dr. admitted that he did too. Adam once again
got better, and was doing great until he received his immunizations.
He began having trouble with his legs and walking, we took him to
the dr. several times, and finaly found out that Adam had relapsed
again, and only had a few months to live. Again Adam took it like a
champ, and said that he was still going to pray for a miracle, that
God could do anything. Unfortunately that wasn't in God's plan, and
our angel became a heavenly angel on Dec. 21st, 2003. He went
straight from my arms to Jesus's.
