Our lives dramatically changed on February 7, 2013 when our sweet boy, Harlan "The Hero," was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor; grade II ependymoma. For nearly two years, our brave boy fought through his original diagnosis, relapse and everything in between. He endured multiple surgeries, 66 proton beam radiation treatments, four cycles of chemotherapy and countless "pokes" and "booboos." In the seven months before Harlan passed, he lost his ability to walk, play, express himself verbally and so much more of his independence. On October 25, 2014, Harlan gained his perfect "kind blue" wings and left his body that had been tortured for far to long. He was finally free to be the almost four year old boy he so deserved to be.
