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!

Bald boys

I feel like the past week has just flown by, and I haven't had time to give a lot of updates. Brooks went back into the hospital on Thursday, April 1st. He is just about finished with his chemo treatments. His last dose is tomorrow. He has been tired, but has stayed healthy,which is great. This round, some of the chemo medication is blue. Brooks thinks it is pretty cool. He has been spending most of his time putting together Legos (when he is awake). That kid LOVES Legos! He received a lot of cool gifts on Easter from the Easter Bunny. I think that several Easter Bunny's showed up that day to bring him gifts to cheer him up. We all love that he is able to stay at Primary Children's. It is such a great hospital and there are so many people who donate to help kids like Brooks lift their spirits! What a blessing!

  1. I wanted to say Hi to Lisa. We met at the hospital during one of the parent breaks. Don't you just love Bonnie? She always has such fun things for us to do. I enjoyed catching up on Brooks progress and hope he continues to do well.
