About Carter Nedley
In January 2009, thirteen-month-old Carter Nedley, son of former Greater Cleveland Alumni Chapter President Jason Nedley ('98, '06) and Lisa Nedley ('98), was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). With a survival rate of less than 50 percent, AML is among the most difficult pediatric cancers to treat.
Still, for the next fourteen months, Carter bravely fought his disease. Through lengthy stays in three hospitals across Ohio he endured several rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, and a bone-marrow transplant. Tragically, however, Carter passed away in February 2010.
To honor their son's life, the Nedleys established The Carter Nedley Foundation to help other families in Northeast Ohio affected by childhood cancer and to fund research into treatments.
