Description

Ethan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in Sept. 2011. He was declared in remission 6 months later, and was undergoing maintenance chemotherapy. One year into maintenance, in June 2013, Ethan relapsed. He underwent 3 rounds of intensive chemo to no avail. The chemo was not working on his little body. In a last chance effort, in November 2013, we did an experimental drug. This drug worked for our little Ethan and put him into remission! Ethan has always loved The Piano Guys. It started because he thought Jon Schmidt was his dad, so he would beg to watch daddy's songs. Then he fell in love with their music. The Piano Guys heard about our story through a friend of a friend, and offered him and us as his parent VIP tickets to their Christmas Concert in Salt Lake City. This was such a wonderful and thoughtful gift, we wanted to say THANK YOU! In January, after cranial and total body radiation, Ethan recieved his bone marrow transplant. His little brother Blake was his donor. Today Ethan is still recovering from his bone marrow transplant, but we are hopeful for the future, and grateful for all of the blessings received along the way!
