My Story

resBrain cancer didn't stop this guy.  After chemo and high does chemo at the age of 2, Ethan is now in remission and considered cancer free.  He is almost 10 and the effects of chemo are being seen even now.  At first it looked like just his high frequency hearing loss would be it but now there is a bit more of 'chemo brain' noticeable.  Information can get a bit jumbled and memory is affected as well.  He doesn't remember anything from his "cancer" days, he only sees pictures of his journey.  He now just has yearly checkups!  Our family has been blessed to still have our son with us and we are thankful for each and every day we have with each of our six kids :)
