My Kryptonite

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".

Back at UMC

Donald started running fever last night and the infection in his chest has began to flare up again. We went to the ER at midnight and he was admitted. They have him on 5 antibiotics and will be in the hospital until they can get rid of this infection. He is in room 551 right next to his old room on the 5th floor. Please keep him in your prayers.


  1. Praying, praying, and more praying. Sorry he had to return so soon. Hugs and loves being sent y'all's way.

  2. Very distressed to hear about this setback but Donald will pull through! Praying soon all this will be over and you can return home for good. But for now I pray the grace of the Easter season in the glory of the Risen Lord brings with it the much needed healing that is sought.

  3. Keep that hope and positive feeling going! Donald needs all that we can give him, and more. Healing starts with the spirit, and I know he has a strong one. We are here, praying, and keeping the faith strong for you. We Love You!
