MILWAUKEE – It’s a heart-breaking update on a story we’ve been following for a couple years.

Eric McLean, also known as the “Bucket List Guy” is back at Froedtert Hospital, after his leukemia relapsed for a 6th time.

In 2009, when Eric was given only months to live, he created a bucket list, and even went sky-diving. But Monday–he underwent brain surgery, after leukemia was found in his cerebral spinal fluid. We talked to Eric and his wife Cari just a few months ago about his ongoing battle.

“There are times when I feel like, the whole why me thing, it’s not that often I get that way. When it keeps coming back like that, it’s like gosh, ‘When am I ever gonna kick this for good?'”

We keep Eric in our prayers. If you want more information, or want to help, Eric has a fundraising website, givetolife.org.
