Trent fights cancer

On May 29, 2017 I took my 13 year old son Trent to the ER thinking it was his appendix. After a CT scan the Doctor told us he had a mass on his left Kidney and Trent was rushed to Childrens Hospital in Peoria, IL. On June 1st he had tumor and left kidney removed. Later we found out after having a PET scan that the cancer had spread to his lungs, liver, and pubic bone. His cancer is called Ewings Sarcoma. He is doing chemo in Peoria and we are making weekly trips to clinic in Peoria. I have not worked since May 29th and don't plan to return until Trent's treatment is over which Doctors have told us he has a year of treatment. Please help if you can and share his story. Thanks so much!
