In May 2021, 10-year old, Colt, was diagnosed with leukemia, AML. He went through three cycles of aggressive treatment and then had a bone marrow transplant from his little brother Jack that was his perfect donor match! Colt was able to ring the bell to celebrate remission and 100 days post-transplant. He went back to school and started back up with his swim team in November of 2022. He started competing in January 2023, swimming faster times than before. It was truly amazing to see him back in the water doing what he loves. All was starting to get back to a new normal. Fast forward to February 2023. A year after he rang the bell he had an end of treatment bone marrow biopsy. There were no concerns, no worries, all of his labs were great. Later that week his family found out he had relapsed and he immediately started treatment inpatient. Colt has been such a different child this time around. A true warrior with the mindset of “Let’s go, give it to me, get the job done and get me out of here”. Colt is currently continuing to fight, stay strong, positive and always fight ready. Colt received his second bone marrow transplant in June 2023. He had an amazing donor, and all we know about her is that she is a 19-year old American, and that she is undeniably caring and kind! He left the hospital in July 2023 and is recovering from transplant. He received great news that there is currently no evidence of any active disease. Colt and his family are looking forward to post transplant day 100. We hope that by reading and following his story, you can keep updated on Colt’s progress and people can offer support. Colt and his family hope to raise awareness that pediatric cancer is real, and affects families every day. What Colt has always wanted to do was to help others the way so many people and organizations have helped him. He was able to start the Colt 45 Strong Inc. non-profit as one way to raise awareness to pediatric cancer, as well as to help raise funds for other children and their families who find themselves in similar situations. Colt has enjoyed putting together transplant bags and has started his own podcast to help other warriors on their journey. Colt 45 is determined, fierce, and destined to make a difference. Colt has always been kind and compassionate, but tough times make for tough people, and Colt has become infinitely more resilient as a result. This foundation embodies what we love about Colt45: kind and caring, while also strong and determined. Thank you all for your continued love, prayers and support. #colt45strong #strongertogether
