I am Rem's dad . He was diagnosed with a very rare type of brain tumor called DIPG on Nov. 2012. He had radiation therapy for 6weeks and chemotherapy for 8 cycles. It did help him to have good quality life but as what we were told at the very beginning there is no cure yet for this type of cancer. We spent most of our time going to the oncology clinic and Iam glad Rem never complained about it. My wife has to stop working to take care of him and his other siblings. I was able to go back to work after his radiation treatment but now I have to be with him and spent precious moment with him. He is now under the care of Hospice of Chesapeak.
When you are under this situation you wont be able to realize time flies, you just want to focus on your famiy until we realize our medical bills are filling up. We created this gofundme site to help us with Rem's medical bills.
Thank you for reading our story and support to our family.
