For over four of his short six years on earth, Rhett Krawitt has been battling leukemia. His finished chemotherapy last year, and his doctors say he's in remission...but he's not able to be vaccinated for diseases. So his father is taking action.
I remember getting the vaccination for measles when I was young. That one, and the shot for polio were required. We thought that we had eradicated it in our lifetime, but the number of measles cases spiked last year to 222. This is the highest number in 15 years. If you didn't get the measles vaccine you are especially vulnerable says a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
