Tucker Salyer, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)

5 Years Old at Diagnosis

Tucker SalyerOur sweet little blonde headed baby boy was diagnosed with leukemia one year ago. We never thought we would have to watch one of our children suffer the pain of cancer. To me cancer was something someone else got. I didn’t think or even worry about such a thing happening to me or someone I loved. How wrong I was. It has taken almost a year for me to fully register the fact that my child has cancer. I look back at all the long months of weekly trips for chemo and the many hospital stays and trips to the ER in the middle of the night and wonder how we kept from going crazy. The fact is my little family is stronger than I had ever imagined.

Our Tucker has a long road ahead of him but he is an awesome fighter. We are truly amazed by his strength and will to fight. He is one year into a three year treatment plan and responding well to treatment. Our boys are our heart and soul and we love them so much. We will push forward and continue to stand by Tucker’s side as continues treatment. Hopefully, someday a cure will be found and parents will not have to watch their children suffer the pain of cancer.
