Our Brave Warrior, Jaleel
On January 8, 2016 Jaleel was diagnosed with T-cell Leukemia. His doctors set forth with a plan for him to begin a regimen of high dose chemotherapy followed by maintenance chemotherapy. Jeleel completed his high dose chemotherapy and tolerated it like any warrior would … with determination and an inner fight that supersedes all others. He is now starting his maintenance chemotherapy, which will continue for several months.
Jaleel entered the 7th grade this month and he intends to carry on with many of his favorites: wrestling, drawing, dancing, and the love for his most beloved superhero, Batman. (We think Jaleel has superpowers that Batman could only wish to possess). His spirit can be seen through his creativity and zest for life. Jaleel’s mother describes him as a ‘happy boy’.
PAX is humbly honored to be able to adopt Jaleel as one of our very special warriors.
