Andrew was diagnosed with medulloblastoma; brain cancer at the age of 2. Surgery was performed to remove tumor. A feeding tube was placed in stomach for four months; constantly infected, and practically living in the hospital, until mother insisted removal of tube. Also chemotherapy treatments were done for a year and a half, then two new tumors were found. Proton radiation is being performed daily; presently.
Andrew is full of imagination and good spirits. His mother works full-time to carry medical insurance. And has the weight and responsibility of this unfortunate circumstance on her own. While Andrew receives radiation, his mother is home with him.
