Fatigue, a pale-yellow tinge to his skin and eyes, and bruising all over his body were cause for Gerardo’s parents to take him to the doctors. Various tests were conclusive of the diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia or ALL, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Treatment has included three years of chemotherapy and now close monitoring of his blood counts.
Typical to most teens, Gerardo enjoys hanging out with his friends, playing video games, and going to the mall. His goal is to go to college to become a doctor so he can help others.
