Logan's Student Doctors' Council is hosting a fundraiser on behalf of Jake Collier, a 7-year-old boy diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). He's the son of Logan staff member, Erica Collier, who has been the administrative assistant for the radiology department at Logan for many, many years.
Jake has already been receiving frequent and aggressive treatments and is currently in remission. He will be needing monthly treatments for a minimum of three years and his family can use your help with the high costs for this treatment.
Jake's Condition and Treatment Plan:
• Diagnosed with leukemia on October 28, 2013
• He has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) – B-cell
• He was admitted to the hospital on Thursday, October 31, 2013 and started treatment on Friday, November 1, 2013
• He is currently in remission but still needs three more years of treatments.
• If all goes well and the leukemia does not return; he should be done with treatments by August 2017
