Krew was born in September of 2017, a happy and healthy baby boy. In February of 2018, Krew developed a series of grey spots on his body, so his parents took him to their pediatrician. Later that month, after being referred to a dermatologist, they received confirmation that their precious, 5-month-old son had Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Since Krew's form of leukemia was very aggressive, it needed to be dealt with aggressively. Krew and his family endured 4 separate stays, accumulating to a total of 4 months, at Children's Hospital, living each day shrouded in uncertainty and worry as to what the future would bring for their child. Several months later, on July 25th, 2018, Krew and his family were finally able to leave the hospital - Krew was officially in remission.
Today, Krew and his family live every day to the fullest and have made making memories their highest priority. Krew, now a full-blown toddler, loves to explore the world around him with the energy and enthusiasm innate to a 2-year-old. Although their journey has been rough, Krew and his family are forever grateful for where they are today!
