My Story

Trey was an out fielder and a left handed pitcher, blue belt in karate, and an "A" student in school before he started getting more and more tired every day. I noticed he wasn't eating well and his color was off. I thought he had an eating disorder or was depressed. When I took him to the doctor for a check-up, we were told that he is a sick little boy and needed a abdominal scan to see why he had a lump in his stomach. The next day we were told he may have lymphoma. Only further testing would show for sure. The day after that we were meeting the Oncology doctor and he was admitted for his 1st blood transfusion. That's where our life started moving like a roller coaster.
