Jackson was diagnosed with Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor of the Kidney (RTK) when he was 15 months old. Between surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, his body took a severe beating. Fast forward 11 years and Jackson is cancer-free. He is incredibly lucky!
Jackson now faces a several long-term issues caused by treatment. Chemotherapy damaged his heart, lone kidney and adult teeth. He struggles with life-threatening scar tissue on his intestines from the surgery and radiation.
Despite it all, Jackson is a kind well-adjusted 13-year old boy. He loves playing flag football, soccer, basketball and video games, as well as hanging out with his little brother and friends.
