In 2011 Lloyd was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). After 8 months of in-patient chemo treatments he was declared in remission. Lloyd says it was the greatest feeling hearing those words. In August of 2019 Lloyd started developing an issue with his walking while on an anniversary trip in Germany with his wife, Jessica. It progressively got worse in a very short period of time. On September, 16th 2019, an exact 8 years to the day, he found out that his ALL had indeed returned. As he began this second round of treatment, he says it has been amazing to see the advances that have come along in treating cancer.
This past March, Lloyd underwent a Bone Marrow Transplant at UPenn. This required him to be hospitalized for almost 4 weeks, and in isolation for the first 100 days post-transplant (even before COVID). On June 26th he received his 100 day bone marrow biopsy results. All blood and bone marrow is now 100% donor, which means to date, the transplant was successful. Due to COVID, although his isolation has eased up, he still has some restrictions to keep him healthy.
