Logan’s Story

Our 1-year-old Logan Reid became our angel in heaven on March 20, 2009. An embryonal brain tumor was discovered on Nov. 26, 2008. It's a rare and very aggressive central nervous system Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor, or PNET.

Our youngest son Logan, who is 1-year-old, was sent to MUSC hospital on November 26, 2008 after three weeks of vomiting and becoming lethargic. It was discovered through a CT scan that he had a brain tumor. The tumor was removed on Dec. 2, which the neurosurgeons say about 95% was removed. The tumor had to be sent to Johns Hopkins for analysis where they determined he had a rare PNET brain cancer, specifically it is an embryonal tumor with abundant neuropil and true rosettes (ETANTR), with only 22 other cases documented in the world. After many, many surgeries and 2 cycles of chemo, on March 19, 2009, we discovered that the tumor was growing and another one had developed. Logan passed peacefully on March 20, 2009. God bless our beautiful baby.

Our beautiful baby Logan passed peacefully at 5:54 PM in the arms of his Papa Tem surrounded by his mommy, daddy, Colin, Grandma Vicky, Uncle Steve, and an abundance of love. His heart rate continued to drop throughout the night and the nurses had to use the pump to bring it back up several times. It was Logan's way of telling us he was ready to be at peace. The respirator was stopped at 9:00 AM and he fought for each breath. He waited for his Papa Tem to hold him before he finally let go. Many of his favorite nurses and doctors, some on their day off, came to say a special goodbye. They let us know how much he has touched their lives with his courage and strength. We feel his spirit now and always with us. We know that he felt the love from each and every one of you. Thank you, you will never know how much you have helped and continue to help us find strength. We know that our sweet Logan is running free with the angels, with a full head of hair and that beautiful smile, waving down at all of us.
