ALL Leukemia
Adriane and Adam Tharp

home from being born the night before. Adam had wonderful doctors and all the nurses and patients on 4 Tower are like family. We still communicate with each other. We were sad to see doctor Castleberry retire. Of all the things I remember the doctors telling us that the treatment would stunt Adam's growth and he would have a learning curve. He is 15 now and is 6"3 and is at Montevallo as we speak taking college prep classes and bench pressing 400+ pounds. God is good. When Adriane was 7 years old she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, so we are still coming to Children's quite often.
