Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
My son's cancer journey began on March 27, 2009 at just 1 month old, when a lump was discovered on his shoulder. After five hours of tests in the emergency room, the doctor determined it to be “an unknown mass” and suggested a pediatric surgeon remove it. It was determined that he has rhabdomyosarcoma, and is currently undergoing 43 weeks of chemotherapy. He has had multiple CT scans, ultrasounds, bone aspirates, bone scans, MRI’s and has had multiple surgeries. After his second big chemotherapy treatment his MRI showed “no signs of the tumor.” While this is very promising, there is still a long road ahead. He will not need radiation but will be continuing with his chemotherapy schedule. Our son is an inspiration to everyone that meets him. He is a true joy to be around and the absolute light of our lives. He is my hero!
