KMS Supports Leukemia

Mr. Ruebeck works at Kennett Middle School and here is his story:

“I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocyte Leukemia in November of 2014. I was 22 years old at the time. It was a very scary time for me, as I was nearing the end of college and starting an adult life. One afternoon I got very sick and couldn’t break the fever. The fever reached 103.8 and the doctors couldn’t figure out why the temperature wouldn’t go down. I was tested for everything under the sun. Finally, the doctor came in on Black Friday morning and suggested a bone marrow biopsy. It was the worst pain ever! Later that day I tested positive for Leukemia. The next morning they started me on chemotherapy, and so my journey of living with this disease began. Life stopped for a while, but eventually my normal life began to restart. In 2016, I went for my second bone marrow biopsy and was declared in remission.

This changed my life. Through this journey I’ve met many people going through the same thing but in a different way. I started a team called Lymphomaniacs! We walk for the cause every year! I hope this year you help me celebrate my 1 year mark of remission by walking with me and sporting ORANGE!”

The students of Kennett Middle School listened, learned, walked, and wrote letters. Many students’ wrote words of encouragement to children suffering from this disease and Mr. R delivered them to Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania. We participated in this event during physical education classes.
