A couple months ago, my son Patrick was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. He had surgery to remove the lesion, about 3 1/2 inches on all sides of the lesion, and part of his calf muscle. He gets IV immunological treatment Monday through Friday and that has left him with profound fatigue.
Two weeks ago, Patrick's 2 year old son Judson started wheezing. Judd was taken to the ER just 4 days after the wheezing began and a chest x-ray revealed a 4 x 4.5 inch mediastinal mass. He was rushed to Buffalo Children's Hospital. Further testing by an amazing team of doctors confirmed the unthinkable: our precious little guy has T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma.
Juddy's treatment plan is very aggressive because that cancer is very aggressive. He gets one month of four different chemotherapy drugs. During that time, Judd must remain hospitalized. Then, he will receive 3 years of outpatient chemotherapy.
Jessie has been with her little guy every single minute. Patrick leaves to get his own treatment 2 1/2 hours away, then spends some time with 5 year old sister Charlie, and returns to Buffalo Children's to stay with his wife and son. Neither are able to return to their jobs right now. Unfortunately, the bills keep rolling in.
Please help Pat and Jessie through this horrible time. If we could just ease their financial worries, that would help so very much.
I'm so grateful that I am in a position to step in and help Jessie's sister Heidi and mom Kay with Charlie. She has been such a brave big sister during all of this. I asked her the other day if she has thought about what she wants for Christmas. Without hesitation she replied, "I just want my mom, and my dad, and my brother home so I can snuggle them whenever I want."
That's what we all want, sweetie.

Daddy and Juddy on a brighter day

Chemo today. He still has the energy to go for a spin in the hallway. Face and belly are getting puffy from the steroids but he couldn't possibly be more adorable. Tough little soldier!
