My Story

My nephew Seth is a wonderful 10 year old boy who, out of no where, was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer. Seth, as any child of cancer, is of pure innocense and undeserving of this. Seth is very smart, bright and will crack a great smile and giggle at many things. Seth was just gearing up to enter middle school, which is huge for kids. Seth loves to go camping with his family and friends. Seth loves to ride his quad and ride with his parents in there Polaris Ranger. Seth loves his litle brother Mason and has a great bond with him. He has a chihuahua named Chloe who keeps Seth great company. Seth is only the 22nd child in the United States in history to be diagnosed with Adult Peripherial T-Cell Lymphoma. This makes his treatment an ongoing and changing plan of attack. Seth undergoes a heavy round of chemo every three weeks. He will need radiation therapy and potentially a bone marrow transplant. Fortunately, his 7 year old brother Mason, is an exact match. So far, Seth has proved to me that a ten year old boy is stronger than most adults including me! Even after several, treatments Seth is still smilling and will crack a good joke. We even got him to laugh so hard he collapsed by the pool table cause he was not strong enough to stand and bust out laughing! As for Sunrise Childerens Hospital, well, if it was not for raising of funds such as through St.Baldricks, I believe Seth may not be with us now. The Hospital, Dr.'s, Nurse's & equipment have done an outstanding job and we are very grateful. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was 07-08, now for 08-09 I, Seth's Uncle, would like to announce with much excitement and joy that Seth is currently in remission and is recieving excellent reports of good health from his Doctors. Seth will be able to return to school with all his friends starting next school year. I believe Seth may have enough hair for me to talk him into shaving it off for this years event! (we'll see) we will be honoring the excitement of Seth's recovery this year in honor of Seth. the event for this year is "Lake Havasu City Teen Break 09".
