September 5th
Colin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on March 27, 2017, at the age of 21 months old. So far he has spent 48 nights in the hospital, had 8 blood transfusions, 3 platelet transfusions, had numerous types of chemotherapy, 6 months of physical therapy and 20 lumbar punctures. Despite all of that, he loves going to clinic to see his doctors and nurses. He helps brighten up everyone's day with his playfulness and enthusiasm every time he goes. He is definitely an entertainer!

Colin loves swimming, playing doctor, sprinting around the backyard, playing with safari animals, and singing and dancing to his favorite Disney tunes. He is looking forward to a trip to Disney World in the future, or as he calls it "Mickey's Castle". But his absolute favorite thing is superheroes! (Seriously- he can name EVERY Marvel/DC superhero!) It is not uncommon that he is running around in his superhero cape with a big "C" on it, fighting whatever "bad guy" is in his path.

Despite his diagnosis, Colin is a typical wild and carefree little boy. When we asked him what he liked the most about going to the doctor, we thought he would say "playing" or "riding in the wagon", but he said "I just like to be brave."
