Ethan noticed a golf ball sized lump pop up suddenly on his head in early 2017. After many scans, tests and biopsies, he was diagnosed with B-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma on March 21, 2017. Ethan spent 48 days in the hospital (even on his birthday). We have lost count of the number of times he has been poked for blood draws, spinal taps and port accesses. He has lost some feeling in his hands and feet, He has lost his hair twice, the steroids have caused his face and body to swell, and he is tired most of the time. But every single dose of chemo was worth it. He currently is in remission. Blood cancer is sneaky though. Those cancer cells like to hide, so he will continue chemo until July 2020. Prior to diagnosis, he was a healthy and active 11 year old with dreams of becoming a famous actor. Those dreams may be on hold for now, but he is strong and determined to not let this keep him down. Our journey has just begun, and thanks to wonderful organizations like Rally Foundation, we are not alone.
