My Story

Deacon was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma of the neck just after his first birthday. Chemo quickly started and Deacon instantly gained the love of his care team by blowing them kisses and offering to share his toys. After 3 months of treatment his tumor continued to grow. We quickly moved out of state and his grapefruit sized tumor was able to be removed. Two days after this massive surgery he was in the hospital dancing and laughing. Deacon is still currently getting weekly chemotherapy and showing just how strong he truly is.
