Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Paxton. Get started by reading the introduction to our website, My Story.
On Tuesday, May 8th, Paxton was brought to Children's Hospital after several days of what appeared to be a common cold and an eye infection and a visit to his pediatrician. After preliminary testing, doctors have confirmed that Paxton has cancer; they have found it in several areas throughout his little body. Though doctors are confident it is cancer, they have not yet been successful in determining the specific type of cancer. Without an official diagnosis, the oncology team of experts are unable to begin treatment. Paxton continues to undergo diagnostic testing, including biopsies, bone scans, blood and marrow tests, MRI scans, and more. Extended family and friends have created this forum to continue to provide updates in the diagnosis and treatment process. We are all hopeful to have answers soon, and once they are provided, they will be posted here. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Room E582 PO Box 1997 Milwaukee WI 53201-1997
