Latest Journal Update
- Bronchiolitis and ER visitNaaman’s cold took a turn yesterday (Thursday) and morphed into a gross cough and some green snot – and then a fever of 100.5 just before bedtime. Hoping to avoid the war zone at Yale New Haven Hospital, we tried to negotiate with the on-call doctor, but there was no winning. As long as he is in active chemo, he has to head to the ER for a fever over 100.4. His nurse friends were all pleased to see him, and he sure had a lot of questions about the way they were dressed.

One day our child was enjoying life like any other when in an instant everything changed. On July 26th our adorable son, Naaman, was diagnosed with Leukemia, devastating family and friends and rallying support for his cause. This is his journal of survival and hopeful recovery.
Why we created TeamNaaman.com
Initially we started using CaringBridge as a private journal for family and friends but felt there was more to say. If Naaman’s story could add hope and guidance to those who may go through the same situation it would make this website worth it.
We started this website to continue our journal to share his story, his struggles and his triumphs with Leukemia with family and friends and have enxtended it to show the public as well.
We hope that providing information not just about procedures but about the day to day life with Leukemia we may help those who may be in the same situation as us in the future.
Leukemia takes a toll on a family not just psychologically but monitarily. Incomes are lost due to taking time off and costs add up quick, even with good insurance. We use this website to help support our family’s needs during this time.
Something to share?
We would love to hear from you whether you have a story to tell, want to send Naaman wishes, or just want to say hi.
How to get informed about Leukemia
Learning about Leukemia is more than just learning about the procedures and medical terminology. It is about learning how to cope with it and how to build a support network to help in your time of need.
Feel the urge to help?
We are overwhelmed and appreciative of all the help everyone has given, not just monetarily but also of their time. The GoFundMe account listed below was set up by family to assist with our needs during this time.
