So for the past week or two we have been in and out of doctor offices, hospitals, and have had so many unanswered questions this past week or two! Well, about a month or so ago we noticed an unusual lump on Antonio’s neck. So we took him to the children’s hospital in Macon. They ran some test, things came back normal... So then they wanted to run more test to determine what it could be.. So the other day they did CT scans and X-rays. Today Thursday, August 27th we went to the HOPE Doctor. They sat us down and gave the news that no parent would ever want to hear... He was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer in and around the lymph nodes , at this time we do not know what stage and or type of Lymphoma Cancer it is... Monday August 31st, he will be going in for his first procedure to have his right lymph node removed... They will be doing a 1-inch incision in his neck to get the lymphnode out to test it for full biopsy. We will know later next week what stage cancer it is! They’re talking about placing a port into his chest so he can start his Chemotherapy treatments soon! Asking for prayers for him and the family as this is a very difficult time we are going through! Anything will help with medical cost, transportation to and from doctor visits, and physical support, and anything Antonio may need during this time! We appreciate every single person that can help out and even with heavy prayers! Donations can be made directly to me and or the mother, via GoFundMe or Cashapp $timmyoa & $lizcupcake or can meet up for the ones that prefer physically giving cash or checks! Again, thanks for all support. ❤️
Update: So it’s been a lot to process, but Antonio was finally diagnosed with Stage 3, Burkett’s Lymphoma.. he’s currently getting chemotherapy treatments. We’re asking for all donations to help out with cleaning products to keep his environment sanitized, Such as Lysol wipes and spray, hand sanitizer etc.. He’s had 3 or 4 Lumbar Punctures done.. They found cancer in his neck and it has spread to his stomach area next to his spleen, and also between his thigh and pelvis.
