My Story

Hi, my name is Hudson and when I was 7 months old my mommy had me sitting on the bed and noticed that my shoulder bone seemed to be sticking out in a funny way. She called my pediatrician worried that I had a dislocated shoulder! We went in right away to get it checked out and ended up getting x-rays. I was diagnosed that day with a winged scapula. The doctors told my mom that if it hadn't gotten better in about 3 weeks to call the specialist. Because my mom was concerned about it not getting any better, we went in to the hospital again. I got x-rays again (which I HATE!) and we found out it wasn't a bone or a winged scapula, but they thought it was a soft tissue mass. Things happened very quickly from there and I ended up getting an MRI and shortly after that a biopsy. My surgeon came back and explained to my parents that he thought I had one of two different kinds of sarcoma. As it turns out, I have a Ewing's Sarcoma on my scapula! Ewing's sarcoma only makes up about 2% of childhood cancer, and even less than that in babies my age. I started chemotherapy immediately and am now 11 months old! I will be getting my scapula removed on May 29th and am about halfway done with my chemo treatments. This road hasn't been easy, and I know I still have a long journey ahead (all mostly before I turn ONE! WOW!), but I am a warrior! 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. UPDATE: Hudson's scapula has been removed and all of her margins came back clear! Also, they couldn't find any remaining live tumor. This is the best news possible! She is technically cancer free now, we just have to finish up the remaining 7 rounds of chemo. God is so GOOD!
