My Story

Preston had been sick in early Feb 08 with a bad cold and swollen neck so I brought him to the drs where he was treated with steroids and antibiotics. We all thought his neck would return to normal size. Roughly two weeks later his neck was getting larger so we saw my ENT who immediately CT scanned his neck and biopsied it. Within a few days we found out Preston had Stage 3A Hodgkins Lymphoma, with cancer in his neck, top left clavicle, liver and spleen. He immediately started ABV/COPP chemotherapy and completed 6 cycles over the course of 6 months. He's finished just in time for his 6th birthday and to start his very first year of school. Proud doesn't say or mean enough for how we feel about Preston. He's truly our hero and warrior !
