Dominic's Cancer Journey:

When Dominic was diagnosed with Pre-B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on July 30, 2013, his family was scared! Terrified of the word cancer and everything that goes along with it. But Dominic has showed that through it all that he is a fighter, a champion and inspiration to many. His family, friends, church family, co-workers, and people he did not even know showed his family so much support. During those first few days after Dominic was diagnosed, his family was reassured by the doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, PCA's, social workers, school liaisons and many others on the Nationwide Children's Hospital Hematology/Oncology team. Dominic finished active treatment in October of 2016. He continues to visit the hospital once a month to have complete blood counts and physicals performed to make sure he remains healthy.
