Meet CJ, a 10 year old alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma warrior.
“It’s been a very long road” says Stephanie, CJ’s mother. CJ was first diagnosed in September of 2019 with alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma after experiencing difficulty breathing during soccer practice. “It was the worst afternoon of my life and has been a total nightmare.”
Initial treatment consisted of 42 weeks of chemotherapy, six weeks of radiation and neulasta. After his initial treatment, doctors found cancer in his left lung and just completed six additional weeks of radiation.
“He is so darn strong. He has endured more pain and suffering than anyone I know. The second time around, he does it all with a smile.”
