Help 4 yr Old Cohen Beat Cancer!

$52,264 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 718 people in 36 months
Meet Cohen.. A 4 year old, bright eyed, courageous boy. Last week Cohen began having headaches that were not responding to over the counter medicines and that caused him debilitating pain. On February 26th Cohen started having issues holding his head up, couldn't focus his eyes and was falling multiple times as he tried to walk. It was this day that Cohen was diagnosed with an aggressive type of brain tumor that has spread to his spine. On February 27th, All Children's Hospital in St. Pete Florida preformed a craniotomy on Cohen to remove the tumor from his brain. The cancer in his spine is inoperable and will require chemotherapy. Doctors have stated that they believe the type of cancer that Cohen has is called Medulloblastoma. This is an aggressive form of brain cancer that is found in 18% of children with brain tumors. The biopsy results are expected to come in by Monday night, telling the family more about Cohen's cancer. Treatment is expected to begin this coming Tuesday.

Prior to this devastating news, Cohen spent his days racing dirt bikes with his father. Now Cohen will spend his days in the hospital fighting to beat cancer. His mother and father are by his side and hope to remain there throughout Cohen's time in the hospital. As every family has expenses, Cohen's family now has this in addition to missed time at work. Please help Cohen beat cancer and keep his family at his side. We thank you in advance for your generosity and for your much needed prayers! Please pray for Cohen's healing and strength for his family , especially for his Mom, Dad , and baby brother.

We appreciate you sharing this with your friends and loved ones. Updates will be posted throughout Cohen's treatment.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
~ Laura (family friend)

i want to start out and say THANK YOU! Our community is absolutely amazing and we are truly blessed to have the support of u all
Cohens update:
We r currently waiting still for his platelets to recover... Just to give an insight in case some of u all r confused (as we r constantly ) before cohen is able to do ANY treatment his body must be completely recovered .. His body has all recovered from radiation except for his platelets.. He has been getting them only 1x a week now and he must go a full week and not need them for us to know his body has recovered. Once that has happend we have chose to keep fighting! Unfortunately the Drs feel we r running out of time .. Afraid that his platelets won't recover faster than the cancer has taken over.. Cohen in the past couple weeks has stopped responding.. We know our baby is a fighter and he doesn't want this he wants to ride his dirt bike and play out side again! "It's not over until God says it's over!" We will continue to have faith.. ‪#‎cohenstrong‬

Very sorry for your loss what most people miss is that we are a country of pharmaceuticals and cancer is the largest money maker. Now I'm not a doctor but I was able to get my wife better and out of hospice care by treating her with high douses of vitamin C. Stage 4 copd was the reason for hospice after a recent hospitalization scans showed improvement in her lungs to the point of only stage 1. She was in hospice for 14 months and is now doing well I would suggest a book to read called The one minute cure And without it I truly beleave she would not be here. God bless and prayers go out.

Saying prayers for your son. My daughter, now 14, had a craniotomy for brain cancer at All Children's in 2014. We received some help from a local foundation called Life of Riley. Their family lost their daughter to a brain tumor. I also recommend attending Family Support Group at Children's Cancer Center in Tampa. Bring the whole family! They were so nice and kind and wonderful. It made the drive to Tampa worth it. Bless you and your family through this difficult time.

It's humbling to see the generosity of others... makes me so proud of our community and those who have been led to give even though they've never met the family! This is just the beginning though - the family will need a lot of financial support going forward... I pray that the momentum isn't lost and that finances are the last thing Megan & Brendan have to worry about during Cohen's battle! If you've found yourself on this page, there's a reason you've been brought here.... no matter the amount, any donation is a true gift!
