Over the last few months, Bo had not been feeling very well. He went to different doctors, but they all had trouble trying to get Bo back to good health. Not to be held back, Bo managed to finish out the spring semester and pushed through the stressful period of law school final exams.
The week after finals (towards the middle of May), Bo’s health started deteriorating, and by the end of the week, he was in the hospital awaiting blood and bone marrow tests. While waiting and on the advice of a dear friend who is a doctor, Bo and Christine made the important decision to get him checked into MD Anderson for further testing and treatment.
Bo has now been diagnosed with leukemia. Doctors at MD Anderson have already begun chemotherapy treatments on Bo. Because he is young & strong, the doctors are able to prescribe aggressive treatment, but those harsh chemo treatments mean that Bo is unable to see visitors because his immune system is taking a beating. Overall, the outlook is optimistic, but Bo has a long battle ahead of him.
On behalf of Bo’s friends at the University of Houston Law Center and on the Houston Law Review, we want to invite everyone to help Bo and Christine as they face this battle that will be difficult, exhausting, stressful, and expensive. Though Bo and Christine did not ask for this fundraiser, we have insisted. Donations will help Bo and Christine (and baby Albee) with medical bills and other expenses as they face the next semester or two when Bo will be unable to work or continue school.
As mentioned above, Bo is unable to see visitors at this time. However, please send words of encouragement to Bo and Christine. And, of course, any donation is appreciated.
We will be periodically updating this page with information about Bo and his progress. Please spread the word and send love and encouragement Bo’s way.
