” Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Quinn was first diagnosed with cancer when he was 20 months old. Rhabdomyosarcoma. He had a soft tissue tumor in his abdomen the size of a cantaloupe. After five surgeries, nearly a year of chemo and six weeks of radiation, he was cancer free! Unfortunately, the first week of this year, at the age of 10, Quinn was diagnosed with a secondary cancer. Osteosarcoma. This time, a bone tumor in his pelvis caused by the radiation he received as a little guy. So far this year, he has had round after round of high dose chemo and another five surgeries, including a hemipelvectomy in April, where his right hip and leg were amputated. Despite all of this, Quinn can almost always be found with a huge smile on his face, inspiring all who are fortunate to know him!” – Teresa H.
