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".

Donald is settling in at home and has slept good each night. I am still not sleeping but I am sure I will eventually be able to rest. He is still in a pretty good bit of pain from the chemo injection sites and is still pretty weak. His appointment has been moved to Tuesday to have his biopsy and blood work to see where we stand in his treatment. We are hoping he feels well enough to attend church Sunday morning. Only time will tell. Overall, he is doing well at home.
