Ethaniel's fight with DIPG

On March 1st 2018 my 8 year old son Ethaniel was diagnosed with DIPG. DIPG is a form of cancer that grows on the brain stem. We have to start 6 weeks of radiation on Tuesday March 6th and will have to make trips to St. Louis every day Monday thru Friday. For us that is about an 80 mile drive one way. We are trying to raise money for gas to drive back and forth and to also try and fill in the gaps between pay checks since right now my husband is the only one with a job and is on leave while we begin this process.
