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".

For anyone who does not know, Donald is at UMC in room 550. I have had a few people wanting to know. Reminder: If you are sick or have been around someone that is sick in the last 24 hours please wait to come by when you are better. He loves visitors but we just have to be careful not to expose him to any illnesses because he has no immune system right now. Also, no flowers or live plants are allowed and no children under age 14 are allowed in his room. Thanks again to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
