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".

A word from Donald
Hello all, this is Donald. I am still hanging out at my new residence. Looks like I will be here for a while. They say a minimum of 30 days. Not sure if they really know what they are getting into keeping me here that long. LOL! I just want to thank everyone for your prayers and all of the phone calls and text. It means a lot to me. It's hard to believe I am here again. It's almost like a bad dream I can't wake up from. But, I am trying to stay optimistic and strong. I have beat this twice and I can do it again.
