Jon, 1 year-old from Alice, Texas

Carla, a nurse, noticed bruises all over her son, Jon. Pediatric Oncologist Judith Mullins diagnosed the baby with severe aplastic anemia, a rare disorder that occurs when bone marrow stops making enough blood forming stem cells resulting in low red, white, and platelets blood counts. If left untreated, it can rapidly result in death. After undergoing several months of treatment, Jon is now a toddler on the go!
