Please join Health Educator & Life Coach, Erica Haray-Butcher, as she talks with Adam, a St. Jude Leukemia patient. Adam is inviting you to make “every day count” through acts of kindness and compassion.
Adam was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) July 29, 2014 at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. After an incredible summer of travelling, college visits, and preparing for his junior year of high school, he began to experience pain in his hands. Concerned about possible arthritis, family friend, Dr. Hugh Holt ran some basic blood tests. No one would have imagined Hugh would tell Adam, this easy going, healthy, all around nice guy, that he had cancer. Life will never be the same for Adam, his family, or his friends.
St. Jude’s A.L.L. treatment requires daily or weekly chemo treatment for 2 and 1/2 years (until Jan. 2017) followed by annual checkups for 7 more years (until 2024) before they can declare Adam cured. Adam decided to call his support community, “Adam’s Army” because he believes together he will be healed and along the way the Army can help heal the world.
Please join Erica and Adam as they talk about his health journey, the lessons he’s learned, and his mission of making every day count. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this conversation. It will be full of hope and inspiration to us all.
And, don’t forget- good health is contagious…pass it on!
