30909820_1530206237944673_r.jpegHi, my name is Coen McDade and I am 5 years old. I love life and I am fighting this thing called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. I was diagnosed on June 14, 2018 after discovering a large bump on my hand between my thumb and pointer finger (I named him Herman, the Villian). The doctors took it out of my hand and told my mommy and dad that it was a malignant cancerous tumor.  After getting a bunch of testing done, the doctors told us that the cancer has moved into my bone marrow. Within days I had to have a surgery to put in a port so the doctors could give me medicine to get rid of the nasty germs that Herman left behind in my body.  So it looks like I will be getting chemotherapy for the next 54 weeks .

Thanks for stopping by and for thinking and praying for me and my family.  And just in case you were wondering, some of my favorite things are:
Swimming, my brother Everett, my mom and dad, video games, my dog Bodhi, my dog Skippy,  Minecraft, my cats Prince Charlie and Zuko, Fortnight, and green is my favorite color. I love going to the Dallas World Aquarium and the Arboretum. I play soccer and T-Ball and I look forward to starting Kindergarten in the future.

Whatever you can do to help, my mom and dad sure will be grateful. In the very near future my friends will be having a silent auction and will be donating so many great items and services to raise money for my medical bills.  Thank you.

Hello!

I apologize for the long delay between updates. As you all know, life gets busy!

Coen is doing well. He’s enjoying a MUCH needed and well deserved week off from chemo treatments. He has a skin irritation at his port site, but it’s beginning to clear up and his appetite is returning. He and Everett spent the day together today playing Minecraft and eating pizza.

He goes back to the doctor on Monday for a two-day infusion and then his Grandmother is coming in from Nevada a visit on Wednesday. We can’t wait!!

Thank you again, everyone, for your prayers, good vibes and support.

Hello friends!

Coen had his third chemo treatment yesterday. Each week, prior to treatment, they run labs to monitor his red and white cells, platelets, overall blood chemistry, etc.

I’m happy to report that is body worked HARD over the last week to recover. All counts went up! He ran a low grade fever off and on over the weekend probably because his body was working hard to recoup.

The only thing that took a little dip was his protein level. Looks like we’ll be making smoothies and sneaking in some protein powder and talking about how tasty scrambled eggs are.

Hello!

I want to thank everyone who has so generously donated to help Coen. Really awesome!

Coen left the hospital on Friday and spent a few days at his dad’s house. He finally came home to my place today! He did deal with some side effects from the chemo, but overall he had a great day. He was very happy to see his brother and loves his new bed that’s parked right next to mine. ❤️ We snuggled, watched movies, played games, finally got some food in his belly and Everett spent hours helping build a MineCraft LEGO set for his little brother. Hoping he has a restful night so he can enjoy some fireworks tomorrow night. Happy 4th of July!
