Drew George was a vivacious young man – he loved baseball, basketball, soccer and golf. At 15, Drew was diagnosed with AML. Luckily, his sister Tori, was a 10/10 perfect match for a life-saving bone marrow transplant. He went into remission and was doing great until he relapsed during his freshman year of college at Ohio University- only 20 days into his freshman year. He was then given a stem cell transplant from a donor in Germany in January 2017. Again, he beat cancer and went back to living his life as a college student.
April of this year we learned that he relapsed again at the age of 21. Drew coined the phrase "3rd times a charm" because he was ready to beat cancer for the 3rd time. Drew was able to benefit from trial drugs that became FDA approved protocols which gave him more time here on earth. Unfortunately, that is not what God had planned for him, he went to Heaven on June 13, 2019.
More than anything, Drew adored his family and friends. He was a positive light in our everyday lives and a gift and blessing to all. His unbreakable bonds in friendship were testament to that. He battled Leukemia with strength and grace; and always put everyone else first. Everyone who met Drew loved him.
He will be dearly missed by many, but never forgotten and his memory will live on forever. We carry his heart in our heart. We are and forever will be #DREWSTRONG!
