Oscar Hasham

Oscar Hasham is a special and beautiful 9 year old boy who loves life in Williamsburg, Virginia. Oscar enjoys legos, Fortnite, Star Wars and playing with his friends.  In October 2018, Oscar complained of leg pain. Doctors initially attributed Oscar's discomfort to muscular or growing pain. Oscar saw several doctors and all tests came back normal.  Despite the normal results, Oscar's pain worsened, so he was referred for an MRI the day after New Years at CHKD in Norfolk, Virginia. The MRI results revealed a parent's worst nightmare, an aggressive spinal tumor that required immediate surgical intervention and biopsy. The surgery was performed on 1/8/19 and took approximately 7 hours. However, the surgeons were only able to remove about 20% of the tumor due to its invasive and aggressive nature. The biopsy results and diagnosis were reviewed with the Hasham family on 1/18/19 at CHKD, and Oscar is now home with his family in Williamsburg. The family consulted with Oscar's physicians on 1/29/19 to determine the most effective course of treatment going forward. Oscar completed proton therapy from 2/19/19-4/15/19.  We will continue to keep everyone updated while respecting the family's privacy. Oscar is very strong and continues to fight, but his parents Omar and Kasia Hasham and Oscar's older brother Liam need everyone's continued love and support.  #OscarStrong
