Please keep Chance in your thoughts and prayers (1 Viewer)

I've been debating whether or not to start a thread, but a couple good friends in the FFA suggested that it may be worthwhile.

Unfortunately, after beating back brain cancer twice in the last fifteen months, my son Chance's cancer has returned. And now, instead of one tumor in his brain, there are three, as well as two tumors in his spine. Additionally, there are a number of other spots where tumors appear to be developing. To go from completely clear scans in June to where we are now just three months later, the cancer is highly aggressive. And, unfortunately, one of the tumors is up against my son's brain stem, so he is starting to lose the ability to walk, and he is losing dexterity in his right hand.

Unfortunately, the doctors have told us that they've exhausted all available protocols. We were holding out hope that we might be able to get into some trial, but were advised yesterday that there are no spaces available in any trials for which he might be eligible. And given the nature of the tumor, any trial would be highly unlikely to cure him, even if he could get in one.

While we are still holding out hope that some treatment comes into focus, or that we are blessed with some form of miracle, our efforts have shifted to supporting Chance, loving him, and bringing him as much joy and comfort as we can.

I would very much appreciate it if you all could keep Chance in your thoughts and, if so inclined, your prayers. As for me, I am a broken, broken man. Please pray that I can find the peace and strength to be there for Chance, and for my family.

Man, that may be the saddest post I've ever read in the FFA. Any parent reading that is sure to choke up a little, and knowing what a quality person you seem to be, Bigbottom, it makes me choke up even more. I'll be sure to keep Chance and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

That's heartbreaking and I can't even begin to imagine what your family is going through. My wife and I will keep your entire family in our thoughts especially Chance. I am a science type but here's to a miracle.

I am so very sorry for your son, you, and your family. I'm a father of a 12 year old and I have no idea how one could cope with this. The feeling of impotence and anger would be overwhelming to me.

Again, I'm sorry. I don't know what else to say.
