On December 28, 2009, Brooks Call was diagnosed with acute Myeloid leukemia (AML), also known as acute myelogenous leukemia. AML is a very aggressive cancer that starts in the bone marrow and keeps the blood cells from maturing the way they should. Brooks is 13 years old and is the son of Greg and Lisa Call. He has two younger brothers, Ethan and Nic.
Along with our prayers, well wishes, and positive thoughts for Brooks, what can we do to help Brooks and his family? Our goal is to allow all family and friends to assist Greg and Lisa with any funding we can donate for the many expenses that will be involved in keeping Brooks going strong. Not only would we like to contribute to help with the mounting medical bills, but also for gas, babysitting, food while staying with Brooks at the hospital, and many other expenses.
Please look at the "Please Help Brooks" section on how-to-donate. We have made it very easy for all family and friends to help out – where ever you are! Please donate, and pass along this notice to all of your family and friends. Have them go to this blog to find out more information on how to donate and get updates on Brooks!
Thanks, from all Brooks’ Family!

This round in the hospital has been a little harder on Brooks and the family. He misses his brothers so much and his brothers miss him. I don't think we say it nearly enough, but cancer really sucks! The doctors found a few spots on Brooks that looked like cancer, so they took some samples and they are waiting for the biopsy to come back. His blood is still looking good, no cancer cells, but the spots on his skin looked a little suspicious. We are still waiting for his counts to drop to zero. Brooks is such a strong kid! I know he hates what he is going through (I think HATE is an understatement), but he always looks at the positive experiences and the lessons he is learning. He is AMAZING! Love you Brooks! You are always in our prayers!
