When Hunter's pain worssened he was brought in on January 23, 2018. They x-rayed his leg. We were sent to St. Mary's in Rochester for further evaluation. They ran a MRI and CT scan on him on 1/24/2018. Catscan of his chesk came back clear which was great news. However, the MRI of his leg showed bone cancer. On 1/25/2018 a PET scan and biopsy showed his cancer was localized to just his thigh area. Biopsy results came back as high grade/fast growing Osteosarcoma.
Chemo for Hunter officially started on 2/03/2018. Doctors predict 29 weeks of chemo, with no setbacks. Any setbacks will draw out the overall length of his chemo treatment.
Hunter will have an appointment on March 29, 2018 to go over how his body is reacting to chemo. Depending on his results, he may face further challenges and partial to full-length amputation.
Hunter has a long road ahead of him and we are asking for support to help subsidize our family. At present, Steve and I are having to take time off from work to stay with Hunter during his chemo and stay home with him when he is unable to go to school or is not in the Hospital. Any support we can receive will go towards providing Hunter with the care he needs, covering any expenses that Health Insurance will not cover, and helping pay bills.
