Evan noticed he had a small lump on his neck around mid-September 2017. The lump continued to grow bigger and was the size of a golf ball at the time it was removed on Monday, October 16th. On Thursday the 19th, Evans parents were notified that the lump was non-Hodgkins lymphoma and that the Doctor wanted to meet with them Friday morning. At the meeting, Evan and his parents were informed that he had Burkitt Lymphoma and was immediately transported to Children hospital where they are currently conducting testing and scans.
Burkitt lymphoma is a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in which cancer starts in immune cells called B-cells. Recognized as the fastest growing human tumor, Burkitt lymphoma is associated with impaired immunity and is rapidly fatal if left untreated. However, intensive chemotherapy can achieve long-term survival in more than half the people with Burkitt lymphoma.
The goal of TEAM EVAN is to raise funds to keep up with insurance payments, medications, getting Evan to and from treatments, keep him both fed and cared for, and anything else that may come as this disease is treated. We hope you’ll join our team!
With your support, Evan will beat this disease! You are appreciated by his family who has been by his side as this has unfolded. Having, even more, cheerleaders in his corner will undoubtedly keep Evan's spirits up as he continues to undergo treatment and deal with this awful disease that no one should ever have to endure. Until then, with your help, we will keep him optimistic that that day is in his near future.
THANK YOU for your love, hope, prayers, and support!
