My Story

Axton was diagnosed with a Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma brain tumor the week of his 10th birthday. He had emergency surgery to remove the tumor the following week. Though he did have to recuperate and spend some time in physical therapy, overall his immediate prognosis was very positive. Were it not for the scar on his head, you would never know what he has been through. Now he is a high school graduate and is bound for college. For a long time we lived in the moment and did not have specific expectations for his future. Even though the fear never completely goes away and even a normal headache can feel like it has the potential to be threatening, we are so fortunate for his outcome. However, this isn't a common story. It is much more likely for childhood cancer survivors to struggle with long term effects of treatment. Children with cancer have to bear such great weight on such small shoulders. By supporting children's cancer research you are giving these courageous children a chance at living their full lives. We can't thank you enough for supporting this cause!
