In May 2017, we heard the words every parent dreads “Your child has cancer.” Over the next several weeks and one surgery later we discovered our sweet, eight year old boy has stage two cancer in his brain stem. Wyatt is the first child to have this rare form of brain cancer and because of it’s location and size, it is inoperable. There is no standard form of treatment for Wyatt’s rare cancer but his doctors feel chemotherapy is currently his only option.
It is heartbreaking to see our son who loves to hunt, fish with his grandpa and race around on his dirt bike, suffer through the effects of chemotherapy. While we are trying to maintain a “normal life” the financial struggle we are now in is only adding to the emotional and physical toll cancer is having on our family. They say it takes a village to raise a child...well it takes even more to save a child's life.
Medical bills are pouring in and they will only continue. We are 3 1/2 hours away from Wyatt’s doctors at UCSF, bi-weekly blood tests, prescriptions, hotel stays for treatment, the list goes on and on…
Our hope in setting up this page is to receive help for Wyatt and the expensive task of saving his life. I will be providing updates as things progress so please check back in and thank you for your support. Every dollar helps us take one more step forward for Wyatt.
Brain cancer is the leading cause of death among childhood cancers and the 5 year survival rate is ONLY22%. Thank you for helping us fight for Wyatt.
