Eastons fight against Cancer

This account is to raise money for Easton Carraway’s fight against cancer. We have people ask us all the time about how to donate since previous accounts were closed. This will be an easy way for those who want to donate. Eastons fight is in full swing, we have seen the finish line a few times but unfortunately not able to cross it. Easton was Diagnosed with stage 4 cancer On March 4th 2017, Doctors found a 9.5 cm tumor in the tailboine/ pelvis region, which had spread to surrounding muscle tissue and both lungs. On March 7th, we took our fight to St. Jude. We learned the cancer was saccrococcygeal teratoma, a form of germ cell tumor. Easton went through 6 cycles of harsh chemotherapy and numerous invasive surgeries including removal of the tumor in pelvis region, left lung thorocotomy and removal of the tailbone. In September of 2017, we thought Easton had won the fight for good and went home after being at St. Jude about 7 months . A week after being home Easton had a seizure. New scans showed a rapid growing brain tumor that needed emergency removal. After the brain tumor removal, Easton completed two more rounds of harsh chemotherapy where many side affects occurred, including damage to the bladder and hearing that required Easton to need hearing aids. Most recently the cancer has came back again. Scans show new spots on the lungs, liver spleen and brain. Easton had a second brain “tumor” removal December 20th. (The day before his new little brother was born) during that resection pathology showed that the spot was actually infection not disease. They also did a liver biopsy that came back infection and not disease. They have not been able to determine yet what kind of infection it is. It’s has many people puzzled. However the Bloodwork shows active cancer in the body, so we aren’t sure at this point where exactly the cancer is. We are hoping new scans can help determine that. Easton finished radiation on Wednesday January 10, 2018. We get one set of new scans on Jan 11. And more scans very soon after that. Doctors now want to do Two rounds of high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant after all scans. This is known to be a “last resort” type treatment but we are believing the Lord will heal our child this time. This extensive treatment will last Two months while being on a very strict transplant floor of the hospital. Easton will not be able to see his new little brother or any other children during this time. With newborn baby gunner requiring care and attention from Mom, Dad will be staying the two months inpatient with Easton. Having a newborn along with living in Memphis, having a house back home, and all other normal/ daily family expenses, every penny helps our family keep fighting for Easton to escape this nightmare. We are so thankful for all of our supportive friends, family and community. Thank you all so much. God bless and #TEAMEASTON
