My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.Kyle is 13 years old, he was diagnosed in Nov 2010 with Ewing sarcoma(solid tumor) in his left femur and also right lung. Had spot in lung removed first. Then after 8 chemo they replced femur w/titanium . Then resumed 6 more chemo treatments. When all chemo treatments finished he had to have 10 radiation treatments on both lungs. Done,we thought!! Even had port removed. Now as of First part of Ma...y 2012,the cancer is back,the right femur so far. more scans to come to see where else if any.Lots and Lots of pain,God is and always will be in control!!!Kyle is a 7th grader at Lone Cane Middle School a Member of the First Baptist Church on the Square. full name KYLE HENRY ABERNATHY Treatments at Children Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston. many trips to and from with long stays etc.... They did two biopsies on left leg,1st time they told me no cancer, light infection,ha!!! 7 days later wanted to do again. then yup cancer, also biopsy in crease of left leg,lung spot removed,port installed and needle biopsy in right hip area all in one surgery, then 12 hours later started fist 5 day chemo.. Now as of Mid May 2012,another biopsy and the scans started over. cancer has spred to several of his bones,and others places. Surgery set to reinstall port and start chemo again. God is still the center of our lives and still in control. When it's the darkest,He will lead us,just hold you heart out and let Him. Now after 8 rounds of chemo,kyle is feeling alright,his quality of life is stable. Still trusting in God with all our hearts. Chemo will continue indefenently. Please continue to pray for Kyle,he is a fighter,loves Jesus and all of you.Kyle starts a new treatment plan as of Jan 2013. This is a new study still in phase one clinical stage. When the doctor told me,Toby,Kyles dad,there was one spot left open,that was God telling us that this is your next step. Well,as of Jan 2013 Kyles cancer is worse,yet again. A benchmark PET scan showed that his hip and pelvic area is getting worse. Still following God plan,we are starting a more intense chemo and radiation plan. This week was the first round of chemo,been a tough road. He has been very sick and unable to attend school like he wants to,but,Kyle is strong in his faith,always smiling. Although the doctors say we are running thin on options after this,we will always "flex our faith!!!
