Jaxon's Clubhouse

I've made a new gofundme page for Jaxons "bucketlist" of all the places his parents would like him to see. All of the other money has gone for hospital bills, for his medicine that insurance doesn't completely cover, and some of their traveling. As you know, zach and amber have no income right now due to wanting to spend as much time as possible with Jaxon. We thank you for any and all donations, you guys are making dreams come true for them. If you can't donate, thats okay too, your prayers are worth millions! So please keep those coming too!

We all completely fell in love with this blue eyed handsome boy, Jaxon Taylor Baumgard on August 19, 2013. He definitely stole our hearts from the minute we even found out he was growing in his mommys tummy. He is the most loving, and happiest child in this entire world. For a while doctors were going back and forth on whether or not Jax was autistic, and one of the things suggested to do was to rub his legs because of the sensory part of it. In April of 2016, while my brother was massaging his legs he felt a knot and they immediately made an appt with the doctor. MRI's, catscans, surgeries for biopsies and a few doctor appointments later, it was confirmed that Jaxon had Ewings Sarcoma in his leg and it had already traveled to his lungs. We were confident that we had found this just in time. They had surgery to remove part of his bone in his leg which removed the whole tumor. After doing chemo and radiation, scans showed that his tumors were pretty much gone in his lungs. They had all completely shrunk and stayed the same size for a few scans so they thought for sure it was just scars in his lungs. Fast forward to July 28, 2017, scans revealed that Jaxon's cancer had come back more seriously in his lungs. Three new large tumors were now present in his right lung. At this point, the lung doctor said it was very serious, but the oncologist believed there were other options. Chemo started again, and again it was working! The tumors were shrinking and pretty much all the way gone and at this point it was decided to do a bone marrow transplant. These have a pretty high success rate to get rid of all the cancer so they proceeded with the procedure to get it all started. A procedure that was supposed to make Jaxon super weak and miserable for weeks, but turns out, our boy was way stronger than that and was maybe down and out for a day or two. Other than that, he was all smiles and happy during the whole thing. He really is the bravest boy I know. In march 2018 was the transplant and scans were June 1. This was to see if the transplant helped, unfortunately, they did not. But we still werent giving up, they decided to give Jaxon chemo for 30 more days, rescan and see if the chemo helped. July 6, 2018 they scanned again and this time chemo was unsuccessful. Our hearts were completely broken, dreams were shattered and my brother and sister in law were forced to sit down with hospice and make really hard and life changing choices. Jaxons cancer is really bad, and with a continued study drug, the doctors give him until the end of this year. But we cling to the hope that God has the final say. No matter the outcome, we will praise God through this storm and we will not give up on Jaxons miracle. We could not thank everyone enough for being there through this journey with us. We just ask that you continue to pray for our family through this tough time and we hope that if anything, Jaxon has changed your life for the better, like he has ours. Through this whole process, Jaxons been our back bone, and God has been our rock. He has been the strongest and most courageous little boy and has seriously kept us all strong with his sweet spirit!
Please note, we have not given up, we know God can heal him and we cling to that hope, but we also aren't oblivious to what can happen and we are just determined to make his life the happiest life he could ever dream of.
