30909820_1530206237944673_r.jpegHi, my name is Coen McDade and I am 5 years old. I love life and I am fighting this thing called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. I was diagnosed on June 14, 2018 after discovering a large bump on my hand between my thumb and pointer finger (I named him Herman, the Villian). The doctors took it out of my hand and told my mommy and dad that it was a malignant cancerous tumor.  After getting a bunch of testing done, the doctors told us that the cancer has moved into my bone marrow. Within days I had to have a surgery to put in a port so the doctors could give me medicine to get rid of the nasty germs that Herman left behind in my body.  So it looks like I will be getting chemotherapy for the next 54 weeks .  


Thanks for stopping by and for thinking and praying for me and my family.  And just in case you were wondering, some of my favorite things are:
Swimming, my brother Everett, my mom and dad, video games, my dog Bodhi, my dog Skippy,  Minecraft, my cats Prince Charlie and Zuko, Fortnight, and green is my favorite color. I love going to the Dallas World Aquarium and the Arboretum. I play soccer and T-Ball and I look forward to starting Kindergarten in the future.


Whatever you can do to help, my mom and dad sure will be grateful. In the very near future my friends will be having a silent auction and will be donating so many great items and services to raise money for my medical bills.  Thank you.
