Big hellos to all of our family and friends! We have finally taken the time to put together a site where we can all support Quinn together in one place. As most of you know, Quinn was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Father's Day. Since then, he has undergone surgery to remove the tumor and braved his way through many tests, procedures and 6 straight weeks of radiation where he had to be sedated each day to receive his therapy. We are now embarking on what we understand to be the more challenging portion of his treatment here at St. Jude. Quinn is nearing his half-way point of his chemotherapy treatment and we are happy to report that he has handled the treatment very well thus far. We look forward to sharing our ongoing experience with you and have already benefited so much from the amazing outreach of support from each of you over the past months.
Please check back regularly as we will continue to add pictures, stories and videos capturing our experiences on this journey. The journal entries are titled with the date they occurred and not the date they were posted. Please bear with us as we catch up on the past few months while also updating on Quinn's current progress simultaneously.
