Cox family fights

Before his son was diagnosed with leukemia, Jim Cox never knew anyone with cancer.
Colton Cox was like any other 8-year-old child before a small bruise on his arm caused his mother to worry. April Cox researched online after noticing the bruise on her son’s arm and came across symptoms of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She feared the worst and after taking him to the doctor and insisting on a blood test, her suspicions were confirmed and Colton was admitted to ICU the same day. That was Aug. 31, 2009 and although Colton is now in remission, he will continue to receive chemotherapy treatments monthly for the next three years.

Colton, like his father Jim, enjoys drawing and creating artwork.

“He loves to draw, loves music — he is really smart, he loves sports and video games,” Jim said.
