At a recent doctor visit for sweet six month old Tatum, a mass was discovered and he was admitted to the Oncology floor at Children’s Hospital. Tatum had a CT scan Thursday, May 10 at 7:30 a.m. The Radiologist confirmed that Tatum has cancer. The tumor is about the size of a nerf football. It stretches from his lung to his abdomen. It is pressing on his spinal cord which poses the most immediate concern. The neurosurgeon is operating the afternoon of May 10 to relieve some of the pressure on his spine while taking a golf ball sized biopsy to send to labs around the country to determine the most effective chemotherapy. Chemo treatment will begin soon to start to shrinking the tumor.
