Julius was diagnosed in December of 2017. Our world has been turned upside down. Prior to diagnosis, Julius played HS football, basketball and ran track. Jules has been mostly bedridden during the first 3 months of treatment and is just now starting to gain some of his strength and atrophied muscle back. He is currently in Interim Maintenance-1 and continues on with multiple hospital admissions. My active , athletic son is a distance memory these days and it’s heartbreaking. As a parent it’s debilitating to watch your child fight for his life. He’s a fighter and attacks each day with determination and a smile. He’s never angry and never asks the question “ why me”. He accepts each day as it is given. I am so incredibly proud of him!
