Kohlton Myers, a 14-year-old 8th grader at Heritage Middle School in Wake Forest was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia this spring.
Kohlton is undergoing treatment at UNC Children’s Hospital. He will undergo 10 days of chemotherapy with 30 doses each month for six months, where he will remain in the hospital except for a few days at home at the end of each treatment cycle. Kohlton has successfully managed the first round of chemotherapy and hopes to be in full remission after the second round of chemotherapy.
Kohlton plays AAU basketball for the Carolina Waves as a power forward/center. He loves watching football, playing Xbox and he loves all animals, especially dogs. He enjoys going to Emerald Isle in the summer and to the Great Smoky mountains in Tennessee. building, and playing Xbox with his friends.
Kohlton and his family, including brothers John, 16 and Carson, 12, have received overwhelming support from extended family, grandparents and friends as well as from his father’s workplace, Majestic Kitchen & Bath Creations and the local residential construction industry. The family is grateful for extra funds and meals while they focus on Kohlton’s medical care. Kohlton has gained strength and courage and a deeper sense of faith in Jesus Christ his Saviour and direction during this journey. The biggest challenge since diagnosis is dealing with long-term stays at UNC Children’s Hospital for many months while juggling school work and family.
