View Full Version : update on Preston....

A while back I posted if anyone wanted to send postcards to a little guy with cancer, to please do so. I know several of you did.

Yesterday, my daughter told me that after tests to see if he could be accepted to a clinical trial, he was denied because they have found new tumors on his spine, the ones he had in his brain have grown and he has new ones there as well.

He is now in stage four and they don't expect him to live to go on his Make a Wish trip. I don't know this little guy, but it is so very sad. No parent should have to go thru something like this. I thank the powers that be my children and theirs are all healthy.

I will say prayers for the little fellow and his family. Just so sad when it happens to the young ones. I often tell my children that until we read something like this we don't know how lucky we are with our children. We need to thank God every day.

Just got off of facetime w/my daughter. She just spoke to her friend who told her that Preston had a serious seizure last night and is now in ICU in a drug induced coma, his brain is swelling, and he is hooked up to all sorts of things and probably won't make it thru the weekend.

Her friend said prayers are welcome if you are so inclined to do so.

Thank you.

I am so sorry to read this. I have wondered how he was doing. I agree this is something that no parent should ever have to face and those of us fortunate enough not to should Thank God every day and not take one of them for granted. We never know when we will walk in their shoes. Prayers for peace and comfort for him and his family.
