Phoenix is a spunky, charismatic, happy 3-year-old who is obsessed with anything Disney related, and his favorite character is Mr. Potato Head. He loves to wrestle with his big brothers Koko and Bubba plus give his dog King a run for his money too.
In early June Phoenix had a high fever for five days straight. He headed to the ER for further testing and after many hours the doctor came in and told his family his white blood cell count was through the roof. He was admitted to The Children’s Hospital at Providence. Phoenix was diagnosed on June 12, 2018 with High-Risk Pre-B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Phoenix began chemotherapy and was in the hospital for 35 days. He is now in the next stage of his fight against cancer. Phoenix’s treatment could last beyond 3 years.
