I'm why you're here

Neal H.

At diagnosis, he was in stage four, the most advanced cancer.

Neal (Bugsy) Dennett Hutchinson had just turned four years old when he was diagnosed with Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma, a non-Hodgkins cancer. At diagnosis, he was in stage four, the most advanced cancer. Luckily for him, the doctors at The Children’s Hospital were ready to promote a bone marrow transplant as his best hope for cure. He went to Omaha, Nebraska, where he was the youngest candidate ever for a stem cell transplant. The developers of the Cobe apheresis machine sent all of their top people to watch as Neal was hooked up for his 8 day, 8 hour per day apheresis.

Neal attends school at Holy Cross College, in Worcester, Mass. and is contemplating an English major, with some graduate school inspiration at a later date...he has finished his summer job, working at a cabinet shop in town, and is looking forward to school in the fall.


Thank you
