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. Brody is a handsome, funny, strong, caring 9 year old young man who loves life! He loves baseball, chickens, dogs, cats, fishing, camping, video games, his family, Jesus and his Heavenly Father. He has been struggling with different illnesses like sore throat, fevers, tummy aches, headache, itchy skin and some fatigue for about the last year. In about February of this year, 2018, some swollen lymph nodes surfaced on his collar bone area. The doctors had us watch them and after two months ,when they did not go down, we started with testing for other causes. That lead us to Phoenix Children’s Hospital with a surgeon and Oncologist who have been wonderful. On Monday, April 7th, 2018 Brody’s biopsy showed Hodgkins Lymphoma as the root of all his illness. He has been brave as he received this news. He understands the term Lymphoma as a cancer because his mom was treated for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2011. He laid by her side and watched his IPad while she recovered from treatment. Now Brody will lay with his iPad and recover from his own treatment. He will receive 5 rounds of chemo over a 6-month period. Brody is a brave boy and will kick cancer’s butt! While he is taking on this trial, we invite you to leave comments of encouragement, prayers, fun memories you have of him, or anything else positive and encouraging you want to send his way. This boy is so special and we thank you for showing him your love!
