Greenville, MS | Acute Lymphomic Leukemia
Freddie Green is all too familiar with childhood cancer. He has been through it twice. Just one month after his 14th birthday, Freddie was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The Greenville native underwent intense chemotherapy, blood filtrations and several other procedures. Freddie was declared to be in remission, but the cancer returned this past February. Freddie has not let this new diagnosis dampen his spirits. Freddie is a beloved figure at Batson Children’s Hospital.
Freddie comes to the Children’s Cancer Clinic about once a month now for checkups and treatments. When not getting treatment himself, he can been seen hanging out with other cancer patients providing wisdom, encouragement and comfort. He has become like a big brother to several patients. Freddie is starting his senior year of high school. Upon graduation, he wants to attend college, and while he has not yet decided what he wants to be "when he grows up," he is leaning toward becoming a child life specialist like the ones he has met at Batson Childrens hospital.
