from Warriors for Wyatt / Wyatt's Mom
In May 2017, we heard the words every parent dreads “Your child has cancer.” Over the next several weeks and one surgery later we discovered our sweet, eight year old boy has stage two cancer in his brain stem. Wyatt's type of cancer is only the second case in the world and because of it’s location and size, it is inoperable. There is no standard form of treatment for Wyatt’s rare cancer but his doctors feel chemotherapy is currently his only option. His cancer will never go away and the goal of treatment is to make it dormant. He came close to dying twice, the last time in 2019. He is no longer wheelchair bound but will continue to have PT for a long time. He has a long road ahead, but Wyatt is a fighter!
UPDATE: 2019 Wyatt had his second craniotomy and six weeks of radiation.
The video below shows Wyatt ringing the bell after treatment was completed.
