My Story

James Dreifuss was a 7 year old boy who was diagnosed in May 2007 with bithalamic astrocytoma. His cancerous brain tumor could not be surgically removed. He received radiation treatment to his tumor that summer at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City. James' brave attitude was always noticed and praised by doctors, friends, teachers, and people at the Ronald McDonald House. Everyone was very supportive. Well, his tumor never shrank and then we learned it had started to grow. He started taking the chemotherapy pill drug Temodar and anti-seizure pill Depakote. James liked to read and play on the wii. He also liked Webkinz and Curious George. His 10 year old sister, Diane, was his best friend. We all hope his brain tumor will disappear with chemotherapy treatments. His mom also was battling metastatic breast cancer and at the same time receiving chemo treatments.
