My Story

While battling his illness, Jason underwent chemotherapy, and in March 2008 had his femur bone replaced with a prosthetic. Following his leg surgery, he underwent several additional months of chemotherapy to complete his treatment. He then worked actively to rehabilitate and return to school. In April 2009 the cancer reappeared in his lungs. As a result Jason braved lung surgery and additional chemotherapy through August 2009. Sadly, Jason passed away in March 2011 at the age of 13. He enjoyed video games, playing on his computer and cooking. His favorite thing to make was salsa. He didn't like getting up early or doing homework. He will be greatly missed.
