UPDATE ON COLIN AND HOW WE CAN HELP
Excerpt from caringbridge journal updated Jun 9, 2013
"Many people have watched our journey, prayed for us, and supported us during this crazy year. We have learned a lot, and we hope you have benefited and learned vicariously from our experience. When Colin was first diagnosed, one acquaintance told me that leukemia treatment is time consuming. Because I knew so little about the disease, that struck me as an odd comment, but now I know it is absolutely true. Colin's intense chemotherapy phase will take 18 months instead of the usual 9 months, and then he'll have 2 1/2 years of maintenance treatment after that. It feels like a marathon with a finish line that keeps moving farther away. And now that all the boys are at home, it's even trickier to deal with an unpredictable weekly treatment schedule. If Colin doesn't need a blood transfusion, a clinic visit takes a few hours, but if he does need blood, it's a full day at the hospital.
If you would like to help us this summer in a tangible ways, there are few options. You can donate to the "Bradley Boys" account at Lake Michigan Credit Union to help pay for babysitters, camps, meals at the hospital, and celebrations of Colin's milestones. We also appreciate gift cards for take-out food and gas (which now costs $4.25 a gallon!). We haven't had a schedule for bringing meals since Colin was first diagnosed, but meals would be helpful on Tuesdays and Fridays when we go to Clinic. And finally, we need help with Aidan & Keegan while Colin & I are at the hospital and Dave is working.
Thanks for reading yet another long-winded and long overdue update. We appreciate you! Please keep those prayers coming, we'll need God's help and human help to get through this summer. Thank you!"
