My Story

Jeffrey was diagnosed with Ewing' Sarcoma (a rare bone cancer)in his lower spine. We had many trips to the doctor and ER with unexplained leg pain. After Jeffrey had quite walking we then took him to Childrens in Chicago. They found his cancer the very same day. We started treatment right away, Jeffrey has tolerated treatment quite well with a few minor setbacks. He is walking much better due to weekly phyical therapy. We will be finished with treatments in April of this year and are praying that all will be clear.
Jeffrey loves music and playing his guitar. He would be lost with out music. He also likes motorcross and anything that has crashes in it. He likes driving his two sisters crazy. When he isnt feeling well his video games keep him busy.

UPDATE: Jeffrey has been in remission since June 2007.....
Update: Jeffrey continues to be in remission and is doing well! Thanks to anyone who supports to help get the word out a obout childhood cancer!! UPDATE: Jeffrey continues to thrive in life. He is still cancer free! He does have some minor issues like he can't play certain sports because of the chemo he had. And he still has limited movement in his ankle but doesn't stop him. He has kidney stones from time to time but other than that he is healthy and happy!!
