|Blye receives stem cell treatment|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Orange shirts were out in full force Thursday, Feb. 10 supporting Blye McCallum, who was thousands of miles away in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Blye, along with parents Gary and Andrea McCallum and grandparents Paul and Sheila Gift, flew from Denver to Germany Feb. 1 and were scheduled to return back to Denver Tuesday, Feb. 15.
Blye underwent a stem cell treatment Thursday, Feb. 10 in Germany to help with his cerebral palsy.
The last post on the blog stated Blye had made it through the stem cell implantation with flying colors and was resting with his family at their hotel.
After the procedure, students in Blye’s class were able to speak with him and his family via Skype. “He looks great and is still his very happy self,” teacher Kerri Gardner said.
The McCallums updated Blye’s blog daily during their trip. Those interested in learning more about the trip may visit www.blyesquest.blogspot.com.
A complete story of the trip will appear in a future issue of the Enterprise.
