Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Honoree

christopher leal

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)


Chris is probably the strongest person I know, not just because I am his uncle but seeing him fight through all his battles – his ups and downs – and coming up on top at such a young age is amazing. 

When I first found out of his illness I couldn’t picture him how he is today. You hear cancer and the first thought you have is of losing your loved one but not this little dude. He saw cancer and kicked it back harder than cancer kicked him. Everyday I’m thankful for everyone that has helped this hero keep going
