Kaleb Leigh was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of six. After two long years of treatment, he beat it. Or so they thought.
On September 8, 2014, just a little over a year after he was declared cancer-free, the Leigh family found out that Kaleb’s cancer had returned. When Kaleb Leigh learned of his leukemia relapse, he vowed to someday make a difference by raising both awareness for childhood cancer and money to support research to end children’s cancer. He was nine years old.
About a year later, Kaleb sat in his hospital bed one evening, and told his mom about the lessons he learned after fighting and beating cancer, only to find out about his relapse. Kaleb decided to put his heart on his sleeve, for more than just his mom, and blog about it on his Caring Bridge site. His mom typed as he spoke the gentle words. When Kaleb’s aunt, Morgan Leigh Garner of Hadley Park, read his blog to duo-partner, Courtney Dashe, they were moved and decided to turn his thoughts, words and feelings in to music. What began as the wise words of a nine year old boy, turned in to a song.
CureSearch for Children’s Cancer invites you to share this song and Kaleb’s story to help him achieve the goal of raising awareness for children’s cancer, and the funds to help drive research to end it.
