2018 – Jackson Radcliffe

RCB X flyer by Marti Daly

On February 15, 2018, at only 18 months old, Jackson Radcliffe was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). His specific type of Leukemia, AML MLL rearrangement (T10,11) is extremely aggressive with a relapse rate of 90% and an overall survival rate of 20%. Jackson has received a number of inpatient treatment cycles with aggressive chemo, however, the chemo was not enough to beat this disease and he was admitted for a bone marrow transplant on June 18, 2018. Devastatingly, the bone marrow transplant was unsuccessful and Jackson is now awaiting a 2nd bone marrow transplant through an unrelated donor match. He recently celebrated his 2nd birthday in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where he was all smiles after being taken off of precautions due to his weakened immune system and was finally able to step foot out of his hospital room after 39 days in isolation! Let us come together, bigger and better than ever before, in support of little Jackson and his family and remind them that Friends Don’t Let Friends Fight Cancer Alone!

Jackie T gained his angel wings on Friday evening, July 12, 2019 at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, surrounded by his family, just three weeks prior to his 3rd Birthday.
