Atticus was diagnosed with Group 4 Medulloblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, on January 11, 2021 at the age of 9. The next day, he had brain surgery where his single tumor was completely resected. Despite this, there remained many months of continued therapies. Atticus endured 9 cycles of both in-patient and out-patient chemotherapy and completed his course of treatment on March 17, 2022. He has an incredibly positive spirit, unbelievable grit, grace and gratitude. He remained in school, participated in piano, had a role in his school play and even walked a 5K! His determination to show the world that cancer will not win in our household is evident in how he goes about life!
