Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
On June 6, 2019, Gabriel graduated 8th grade from his amazing school and we also found out he has a large tumor in his left lung. Many tests and CT scans later, we arrived at CHOP on Friday, 6/14/19, the Children’s Hospital of Philadephia where we spent 12 hours with more testing and visits to both the surgical and oncology wards. All the incredible doctors recommended a biopsy to find out what type of tumor we’re dealing with. The biopsy took place on 6/17/19. 
 On June 27, it was shared with us that this is a soft tissue sarcoma and chemotherapy treatments are necessary to shrink it enough to surgically remove.
Thank you for all the love and prayers.
