Whether you are a parent, spouse, or sibling, you will be moved by Ethan’s story. Situations like this just shouldn't happen to good people.
Ethan Scott is a 15 year old from Gastonia, NC who loves his parents, three brothers, extended family and friends – and treats everyone he meets with true kindness. Ethan enjoys reading and exploring the outdoors, and he has a rock solid faith in God, attending church every Sunday. In August 2016, Ethan was diagnosed with mixed germ cell cancer. He had surgery and then underwent several rounds of chemotherapy in the fall. To the dismay of Ethan and his family, his treatment was unsuccessful and he is now diagnosed with refractory mixed germ cell cancer – which means his cancer cells are resistant to chemo. Despite this turn of events, Ethan continues to be a model of faith and courage, and he truly is living every day with a beautiful spirit of hope. He has recently committed to a nutrition program, with his mom spending hours in the kitchen to prepare quality meals and snacks that the family hopes will reverse the cancer that has invaded his young body.
Ethan’s loving parents, Lauri and Gary, are looking at every option available to find a cure for Ethan, including programs in the U.S. and beyond our borders. As you can imagine, medical expenses are piling up which is especially challenging on Ethan’s family.
Those of us who know Ethan are in awe at his positive attitude in the face of such a difficult journey. Ethan has inspired his entire family and his many friends to live with faith in a loving God, and to never lose hope despite the challenges ahead. We know Ethan is a fighter and he will continue to fight this disease. Please take the time to support Ethan and his family - both with a donation and a prayer.
All donations will be used towards medical expenses and Ethan’s nutrition program – and every dollar counts. Thanks so much for your kindness, and may God bless you.
