(Brown & Brown Retail Insurance Services, Executive Vice President)

“My wife and I were first introduced to CURE by a board member and friend shortly after we moved to Atlanta in 2014. We attended many of the fundraising events before feeling its true impact firsthand.  We never imagined that an organization we supported because of its outstanding work for families and research would help us during some of our darkest days.

Our son, Carter, was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in 2021. One of our first calls was to our friend — “What do we do?” we asked. He immediately introduced us to another CURE board member whose child also battled aplastic anemia. We had our first step forward.

Though not cancer, AA essentially behaves like one. CURE was there during the long and challenging bone marrow transplant journey. In late 2022, Carter developed lymphoma (PTLD) as a direct complication of the transplant. Once again, CURE was there for the countless meals during the lengthy inpatient stays, activities for our son, and even a box full of Christmas decorations for our hospital room.

Now, on the other side, I feel compelled and fortunate to share our story and help others along the way during the most difficult times. Research and family assistance are essential and only possible with funding.”
