July 19, 2002 - November 29, 2012

       Miss you so much, Mr. Moo


 



I had a good "map" of the beginning of AJ's story written in here, however, CaringBridge changed, and my "map" had been too long.  I've been asked to rewrite it.

In 2007, AJ had been "off".  After months of being sick, and the local medical professional not finding anything, AJ was rushed to the E.R.  AJ was admitted.  They, at first, assumed it was Gerd.  After watching, we found that AJ would complain of severe head and neck pain.  When we brought this to the attention to the Doctor, and he ordered a CT scan.  That is when they found the mass in AJ's brain.  We were transferred to the local Children's Hospital for an in depth MRI.  This MRI showed that AJ had cancer.  It started in his brain, the main site being 8 cm in size.  However, it spread through the lining of AJ's brain, down his spine and creating a rather large tumor on his tailbone.  We were told we were going to be transferred to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and needed surgery in 3 days time. 

From there, AJ had a very successful Brain Tumor Resection, and was started, shortly after, on Radiation and Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies.  AJ had to relearn EVERYTHING! 

He went thru very intensive radiation and chemotherapy.  In Febuary 2008, AJ was "labeled" NED...No Evidence of Disease. 

After completion of treatment, we have moved to the Fort Campbell, KY area, where AJ is now followed by St. Jude and Vanderbilt Hospitals. 

If you would like more details, please feel free to send an email to AJ's mom, at the email link to the right of the page. 

Thank you, for your interest, support and prayers!
