Dee is an inspirational 13 year who has battled leukemia twice – once when he was 7 and the second time at the age of 12. He continues fighting the after-effects (bone problems, difficulty walking and a low immune system).
From Dee’s mom: “Dee has been battling illnesses for a while now. He is only 13 & has had cancer twice. Last year one of his lil sisters was his perfect match for a bone marrow transplant.

Even though he has several doctor visits he was still able to attend school this year…”
