On June 9th 2008 my youngest of 4 children, Zachary, was diagnosed with a brain tumor - DIPG. We did our first round of chemo (Motexafin Gadolinium) and radiation. We got through the holidays fairly well. We are now doing the Avastin/Iro
Zachary will be starting radiation and chemotherap
They told us the side affects should not stop him from swimming and playing ball. He was very excited to know that he will be able to continue playing sports. As anyone that knows Zac, knows that sports are very important to him.
We would like to thank everyone for their support and help through this hard time in our life. With your thoughts and prayers and Zac's awesome positive attitude we will get through this! We know the odds, but that doesn't matter to us. We know in our hearts that Zac will win. He is too special not to. Even as bad as he knows he has it - he continues to be the same giving and caring little boy he has always been. Keep us in your prayers.
We found out we are headed to St Louis on Thursday the 19th at 8:00 a.m. We will be getting ready for his treatments. We should be home Thursday afternoon. The treatments will begin either Monday or Tuesday.
