Cole Willey, 15 years old, is an intelligent and an athletic child. On February 22nd  2019 Cole started having back pain. After many misdiagnosis it was confirmed almost a month later that Cole has Cancer. This amazing young man has High Risk Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

This is a post his mom shared- 

Coley started with back pain in February. That’s it, back pain. A soak in a bath with Epson salt and a couple Ibuprofen, that’s all he needed. Wrong! Why not this time? Why was this time different? Why was my boy not getting better? Why were the doctors not listening? People constantly ask me if I ask why? Of course I do., but the why’s aren’t going to make him cancer free. His bloodwork showed nothing. According to his bloodwork he was a healthy 14 yr old. The second doctors heard he was a football player, and wrestler they diverted their attention to his sports being the culprit for his pain, and dehydration. I am forever grateful that one doctor looked at my boy in the ER, and immediately knew something was seriously wrong. That is when our journey into Coles true diagnosis began. He was transported from Nanticoke ER to AI on March 10th. On March 13th, my birthday, Cole had an MRI, that showed abnormalities in his bone marrow. He was then scheduled for a bone marrow biopsy. We waited for 2 days for the results. It was confirmed that Cole had Leukemia. We spent 28 days during that 1st admission in the hospital. 

Cole and his family have since spent many more days and nights in the hospital. After Cole completed induction he was diagnosed with a blood clot near his port. At that point he had to begin receiving shots in his abdomen twice a day. Shortly after, he was hospitalized for nausea and vomiting at which time he had to have a GI tube due to his weight loss and lack of appetite.         "stomach hibernation". As I am typing this Cole is currently in the hospital. Today is day 9, and Coles blood counts aren't high enough for him to go home yet. There have been several inpatient stays every other week during part of his journey for chemotherapy. When he hasn't been inpatient he has to visit the Oncology Clinic at least once a week for Chemo infusions. In addition to the above treatments, he also has a home nurse visit to give Chemo infusions at home. This young man has had 3 bone marrow biopsies, 9 blood transfusions, and 3 platelet transfusions, lumbar punctures in the double
digits so far, and undoubtedly many more to come. This is a short version of what this Warrior has endured in 7 months. His treatment is far from over. He will be receiving chemo treatment for at least 2 more years. 
The family lives two hours away from AI Children's Hospital. His father commutes back and forth to work so the family can stay afloat. Cole has two sisters, and a brother. His mother no longer works so that she can care for Cole making their family a single income household. All of the things mentioned has put a toll on the family's finances. We love this family so much. They have an amazing faith in the Lord. They have been through so much hurt and loss in such a short time. Please find it in your heart to pray for them. If you can donate that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

Good morning! We are up here at AI this morning. Cole got swabbed to rule out strep throat, due to a sore throat he started with yesterday. He is getting fluids, because our boy made counts. His ANC IS 900. Therefore Coley will be going down for his Lumbar Puncture in about 45 minutes, and begin his chemo for the next phase of treatment. We are officially in Interim Maintenance 2! Have a fabulous day everyone! We love ya! #COLESTRONG

Cole is still inpatient. His immune system is still extremely compromised due to his low counts.
