Paul Alexander Lerro

Diagnosed: AML, 2005

The little senator, as Paul is affectionately known as, was born on January 28th, 2003. He is a charming, energetic child who loves blowing kisses at the doctors and riding his little tricycle. He was diagnosed with AML this year and is looking for a marrow or stem cell match. Paul's mother is Filipino and his father is Caucasian, this makes finding a match more difficult.

From Paul's website:

"PAUL REMAINS IN REMISSION. YES!"

"Although we feel in our hearts that Paul Alexander is on top of this dreadful disease, the confirmation that he does not have leukemic cells in his marrow thru MRD– analysis (< 5% blasts) of his latest bone marrow biopsy shows us the power of prayer and the infinite mercy of our God acting through medical science. Paul and I feel blessed each day with every minute that we get to spend with our wonderful little boy. Thank you again for all your support and prayers.

We met with our Oncology/BMT team on Monday, May 23. Lacking a good match for Paul Alexander despite extensive searches all over the world, they recommended continuing chemotherapy and watchful waiting. However, as soon as that perfect match donor comes forward, bone marrow transplantation is still the treatment of choice. Again, we are hoping and praying for a MIRACLE, be it in the form of a perfect match or a cure through chemotherapy alone..."
