On March 24th, Athanasius Luke Ruf (son of Lisa and Christian Ruf), was found to have a large (softball size) tumor rapidly growing inside him. From Chippewa Falls, WI, he was sent to the Minneapolis Children's Hospital for further testing and diagnosis. He has since been diagnosed as having a rhabdoid tumor in his abdomen, but thankfully not in his brain or bone marrow. The journal entries on this site are intended to provide everyone with regular updates regarding his health status.
