Wilms Tumor, metastasized to lungs and brain.
became sick just as the pandemic shut down occurred. Finding care was
difficult, doctors seemed to forget more than covid existed. We were always
sent home, told to rest and give Tylenol. It took nearly 3 months to get a
diagnosis. Diagnosis day, June 15, 2020. By then the kidney tumor was massive
and spread to lungs. He spent 6 weeks on a ventilator after developing
pneumonia from a lung biopsy. While on the vent he received both chemo and
radiation. On Halloween he finally had the kidney and it's Tumor removed. A
week later, the tumors were removed from his lungs. He recovered well, was
considered cancer free, doctors optimistic. 7 days later, on November 15th, he
woke up with left side paralysis. It took 3 days to discover 2 masses on his
brain. Treatment was not helping and on Dec 13 he passed to the other side of
the stars after a series of devastating seizures.
loved Iron Man, dinosaurs, excavators, watermelon and strawberries, sunrises and
sunsets and Halloween. He loved his daddy more than anything but was still
mommy's boy. He loved nerf gun fights and wrestling with his big brother. He
was the best hugger and cuddler ever. His smile was so infectious. This child
knew no disappointment and was full of contagious joy. Our world is much darker
without him, but we still chase the sun for him, always will.
