My Story

Coleson is the youngest of 3 kids and was diagnosed at 3 years old..just before his 4th birthday. He was dignosed in August of 2008 and is scheduled to complete treatment in December 2011. He is now 6 and in Kindergarten and in the home stretch of treatment. His prognosis is good but the road to recovery is long. He is a tough kid!
