Brooks' Story

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 weekend has been great for Brooks and the whole family! Yesterday, he spent the day with his family and cousins at Grandpa and Grandma Palmer's. They had an Easter egg hunt and flew kites. It was so fun for everyone! Brooks even tried to play a little bit of "steal the flag" with all of the cousins. Today, he had an Easter celebration at Grandpa and Grandma Call's. He was super tired (probably from all of the running around on Saturday), but all was a great weekend!

  1. Brooks, you probably don't really remember me, but we were really good friends in Kindgergarten. I lived in your neighborhood. I love you, keep going strong. You are definately in my thoughts.

    Good luck
