Hi my name is Brandy and my fiance is Donald Fitzgerald. As most of you know Donald has been dubbed "Superman" and for good reason. Donald was diagnosed with ALL (leukemia) when he was 13 years old and relapsed when he was 18. He was cured of this cancer and has gone almost 13 years cancer free. During this time, he has undergone 2 hip replacements and a partial shoulder replacement due to the high doses of steroids he had to take. Then, on March 24th 2011, 3 months after his 32nd birthday, we got the devastating news that the cancer had come back. We are now at UMC about to undergo the long process of Chemo once again. He will have to stay in the hospital for a minimum of 30 days for the initial treatment. He is strong and will beat this once again but we need everyone's prayers. God is in control and there is nothing out of his hands. As someone posted once on facebook "The deals not done until God's done dealing".

We have made it through yet another day. Donald has done very well today. He had to have platelets again and he is now having to take insulin due to the medication he is taking running his blood sugar levels up. He is still smiling and being Donald. He keeps the nursing staff on their toes. LOL!!! Everyone keeps telling me how blessed Donald is to have me in his life but I believe I am the one that is blessed to have him in mine. He is so very strong and courageous. He is truly an inspiration to so many people. To have gone through everything he has and still have a smile on his face is so amazing. Praying he is able to sleep tonight.
