About - Jack E

Story written 2016

Jack was originally diagnosed with ALL when he was 3. He started a 3 year treatment plan of chemotherapy, sadly just when he was coming to the end of his treatment, he relapsed.

We were told Jack would need several months of intense chemo and a bone marrow transplant. This was devastating but Jack took it all in his stride.

We have now had the intense chemo, but unfortunately it has not worked as well as we had hoped. Jack is now trying a trial drug to get him ready for transplant. We pray everyday that Jack makes a full recovery.

Update 24th August 2016

Sadly Jack passed away this morning,  he had his make a wish day yesterday and then he passed away peacefully.

Update 7th August 2016

First of all, thank you so much for all the lovely post for Jack and his brothers! It has really given them a boost! Jack has just had a very high dose of chemo, and ,as his body has had a lot of chemo over 3 and half years, we know he is resistant to most chemo, we are remaining positive that this chemo will work. Then Jack can go to Great Ormond Street to have a trial treatment, if this trial works he can then have a bone marrow transplant.
Please pray for my beautiful boy.

Update 14th July 2016

Three weeks ago it was confirmed that Jack had minimal residual disease, meaning that a low level of disease has been detected. Jack has a number of Leukaemic cells in his body meaning that he is showing hints of Leukaemia. Now his bone marrow is showing up as almost 100%  Leukaemia. Jack is resistant to almost all of the chemotherapies available. Unfortunately, Jack is no longer eligible for his trial that he has been a part of, however, they are going to try him on another one instead.
