Mile #96 Austin
This is Austin at 4 years old. Austin came into this world fighting for his life. He was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. He suffered from lack of oxygen and as a result he has moderate cerebral palsy. At the age of 3 he was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. His battle went on for about a year and a half. In November of 2007 Austin was declared NED. He is now 16 years old and 11 years cancer free!!! He still battles his C.P. on a daily basis and has several side effects from his cancer treatment ( damage to his kidney, hearing and teeth) but he is a survivor and for that we are thankful!!
