His symptoms began at the end of his junior year in May 2016 with congestion. Through the month of June he developed numbness in his left cheek, headaches, eye swelling and blurred vision. After a few treatments for a sinus infection with no improvements on antibiotics, we requested a CT. On June 30th, 2016 the CT showed a large tumor in his left sinus cavity. The biopsy came back as a neroendocrine carcinoma. We have had a long year of surgeries, radiation, and chemo; at one time he was in remission for a few months.
Unfortunately, the tumor is fast-growing and has a high recurrence rate, so he has just finished another round of treatments ending August 27, 2017. Even after this round the tumor has returned, this time, appearing to be resistant to chemo/radiation. Dominic will have it removed once again, in September 2017, then future treatment plans will be discussed. All options include many expenses: travel, out-of-network deductibles, time off work, etc. He has been staying positive, brave, and keeping faith through this difficult time.
Through it all he graduated high school in May and still participated in track his senior year. He is now enrolled in the fire science program at Casper College determined to not let anything get in the way of his dreams. He makes us proud on a daily basis and continues to amaze us all with his determination and strength.
