Abram is a lively, feisty two year old who was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma on April 24, 2020. What we thought was sinus issues turned into our worst nightmare. His tumor starts in his left nasal cavity and goes behind his left eye. It has traveled to his lymph nodes in the neck as well. He is stage 3 and at high risk because of the fast spread and location of the cancer. Chemo therapy and radiation is our treatment plan. We live in rural South Georgia so we will be making weekly drives to Atlanta for the foreseeable future (at least one year). We have amazing family and friends who are helping us navigate this extremely scary time in our lives. We are grateful for our community and the love that has been shown to us throughout the process so far. We know this year will be very hard, but with our family, friends, community and most importantly, God, we will see the other side of this and Abram will live a long and healthy life. 💙
Abram is well into remission at the end of 2021. We’ve had a few scary moments, but we’re pushing along. Our hope right now is of course Abram to continue to be cancer free but to also share all of our knowledge that comes along with being in this “club”. If you find our story here, please reach out to us as we know exactly what it feels to be in your shoes as parents. You can reach us at email@example.com.
