Carter’s Story

In November of 2013, Carter complained of a terrible headache and had a persistent fever.  But unlike what happens in so many other cases, Carter was dealing with something much bigger than a virus.

Carter was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).   He had a port inserted and began chemotherapy right away. He spent his 8th birthday, as well as Christmas, at Nationwide Children’s hospital.  He has spent numerous nights in the hospital for chemo and fevers.  After completing his initial treatments, Carter began maintenance treatments.  He continues to take oral chemo daily, has regular spinal taps and receives chemo through his port once a month. He is also on other medications.  This will continue until February 2017.

Carter likes to play basketball and soccer, ride his bike and climb trees.  Not too long ago, he also learned how to ski. His favorite teams are the Buckeyes and the Steelers.
