My Story

We have three children with cancer. Our first child was diagnosed with AT/RT in 2000, at the age of three. He went through chemo and radiation. We were told at the time that was not genetic. In 2008 our youngest son (at age 18 months) was diagnosed with the same cancer as our first. He went through chemo, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant. At that time they figured this kind of cancer could be genetic, so they tested the whoe family to see if anyone else was carrying the gene. The test results came back and our youngest daughter, Caitlynn, age three was carrying the gene. She had a 50/50 chance of not having the tumor. She had a MRI and the results came back positive -- she had the same tumor as the other two children. She was diagnosed one month after our second son. Both children were going through treatment at the same time. Caitlynn had one round of chemo and passed away one month after being diagnosed. Our youngest son, Jaden continued his treatments. Both boys are doing great. Our oldest son is 6 years post-treatment and our youngest son is 2 years post-treatment.
