At just 23 months old, Evan Gabor was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common type of leukemia among children. Leukemia, like other cancers, results from mutations in the DNA. No single known cause for any of the different types of leukemia exists. And if that wasn’t sh*tty enough, survival rates vary by age: 85% in children and 50% in adults.
The good: more and more children are kicking leukemia’s ass and we’re happy to report that Evan, now six years old, is rocking the battle against cancer with help from family, friends and even random supporters. “It’s a beautiful thing to have this much support from strangers, even, coming up to me and knowing that I’m Evan’s mom and knowing that they’re here to help Evan in doing research for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, ” says Evan’s mother, Jennifer Kearns-Gabor. She also told 8BitDad that Evan’s older brother, Trevor, is a perfect match for a bone marrow transplant operation within the next couple of weeks.
