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.

Thursday, July 19, 2018 - After doing 8 rounds of chemo, a CT scan was done to see where the tumor was. Unfortunately there was tumor left but it was so small they could not get a measurement on it. After discussing with surgeon it was decided that they would not do surgery to remove the rest of the tumor. Reason being they would have to remove about 3 ribs and with DJ still growing it could cause some kind of deformity. Also where the tumor is located, there was a high chance of permanent nerve damage. DJ is now on his 16th of 31 rounds of radiation. In addition he is getting chemo every 14 days. However we are on our 2nd week of chemo delay due to his platelets being low. This is such an emotional roller coaster. I want him to be able to have his “first day of school” with his friends. Hopefully this will happen but in the meantime we will continue fighting the fight
