    Micah's Story

    Micah’s Story Micah James Silasiri was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia just a day after turning six and a half months old. After five rounds of chemotherapy and numerous surgeries, Micah's leukemia returned and on June 13th, 2011, he received a double cord blood transplant after full body irradiation. Micah fought hard to grow his new cells and get to return home. We were able to take Micah home on August 5th. After just a month at home, we were told that Micah's leukemia had returned and that he was going to lose his battle. On September 20, 2011, Micah was called to heaven. Our little angel received his wings and all of the pain and suffering that he had endured was gone. Micah was taken from us way too early because of Leukemia. It is our hope that there will one day be a cure for all blood cancers and that no other parent or child will have to experience what our family did. Micah was a strong little boy who loved life and making people smile. Over the past four years, with the help of almost 200 friends and family we raised just over $$100,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of our son Micah James Silasiri. He would have been so proud of how much we have been able to raise on his behalf the last four years...and so the challenge continues. This year we are trying to add to that success by hosting our second race in Micah’s honor: Miles for Micah 5K Walk/Run and Kids Dash. We hope that you can join us on May 22nd to make Micah’s second race a great success!
