There is nothing more heart wrenching then when you hear that your child has cancer. You feel helpless, scared, confused, and your mind can't possibly comprehend what to do next but just hold your child and pray everything will be okay.
Sadly, our dear friend, Julie Davidson's son, Dillion, just found out that he has cancer. Some of you may already know and are doing whatever you can to help but for those that are just finding out let me take the time to explain.
Dillion is the eldest son of Julie and Paul and big brother to Cade. A few weeks ago along with many appointments, specialists, and much discomfort the doctors diagnosed him with a germ cell cancer. My heart sunk and my eyes filled with tears as I watched my boys laughing and playing without a care in the world. As a mother, it just hurts deeply. The doctors have found some masses in his lungs and chest which are very uncomfortable, painful, and causing trouble with breathing. As of Sunday, Jan. 7th, Dillion has started a very rigorous chemotherapy treatment at St. Vincent Hospital. Since he is young, they are going aggressive and hitting this cancer hard. His extensive cancer treatment is going to be extremely grueling not only for him but for his loving family too: Julie, Paul, and Cade.
As you can imagine, Dillion is going to be facing enormous medical bills along with normal every day costs. Plus, Julie and Paul's family bills. Julie is a hairdresser and if she is not working, she is not receiving an income. We are going to do our best with this GoFundMe page to alleviate as much worry as possible when it comes to bills for Dillion's treatment and family bills. We don't want the family to worry about their rent, mortgage, utilities, car payments, food...ANYTHING. We don't want an ounce of their time to be allocated to such nonsense while Dillion is battling for his life.
