Meet Adyn

Categories: Blog, NPCF Ambassador Program

Adyn was diagnosed with High Risk Pre-B Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) on December 17th, 2016 at the age of 4. Adyn is being treated by the outstanding oncology team at Golisano Children’s Hospital in Fort Myers, Florida. Adyn will continue treatment until 4/27/2020.

Adyn was very very sick at the time of diagnosis. He basically spent the first month and a half inpatient. Just a day after diagnosis, Adyn had surgery to have a port placed in his chest and he began receiving an aggressive amount of chemotherapy. Over the past 13 months, Adyn has had several scheduled inpatient stays for treatment and a few non-scheduled inpatient stays due to fevers.

Adyn has been fully enjoying Kindergarten this school year. He continues to double his reading goal and has had straight A’s all year. Adyn just finished his first season of soccer since being diagnosed with ALL. He scored three goals at the last game of the season. If all continues to go well, Adyn will be playing another season of soccer which begins in March. Adyn enjoys reading, watching movies, putting together LEGOS, fishing, riding his bike, playing board games with his family and playing video games with is Daddy. Adyn has a younger sister, Abby. Adyn and Abby are only ten months apart, so they are very close.

Adyn wakes up almost every single day with a smile on his face and a positive attitude despite everything he has endured. Adyn’s Mama and Daddy could not possibly be any prouder of their warrior!!! Thankfully, Adyn has been doing very well and we pray that he continues to kick cancers butt!!!!! #AdynStrong
