Jared McKinney and his wife, Kaitlyn, had just moved to a new city to plant a church. They were just finishing up the maintenance chemotherapy from his first diagnosis, received May 2019. They were ready to begin anew when they were given the news -- relapse.
In December of 2020 Jared was told his T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia had been detected in a routine test of his spinal fluid. This time as they traveled to Seattle for treatment it would mean a stem cell transplant.
