There is no easy way to say this, and these are not easy times. The last few days have been really hard for both Canyon and our family.
Canyon’s breathing has taken a significant dip and no longer qualifies for the drug trial in Seattle. He is now on a Vapotherm instead of just oxygen to assist him with his breathing. He, along with the doctors have decided to move towards comfort-based decisions as opposed to treatment of the disease itself.
During this time, he is still choosing to fight using a less than traditional method that has shown some success and can work along side the comfort care. You can read more about that method here. mycancerstory.rocks
This has all come on so fast over the course of a few days and we are still trying to wrap our heads around what is going on. We are still working on a plan to see what the coming days will look like, and we know a lot of people will want to connect with him.
If you feel like that is something you want to do, please contact Trish, Monte, Chelsea, or Denton and we will do our best to accommodate you. Please know that all decisions will be left up to Canyon, and the intense emotions can be very draining, so we don’t want to overwhelm him. He has built so many beautiful connections with so many people and we just want to do right by him.
His faith is strong. He loves you all. God bless you!
