This just brought tears to my eyes. The poor baby.

Dylan Jeskey has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He's being treated with chemotherapy with the hope of slowing the tumor's growth.

You'd think I'd know by know not to open any posts you start.. they're always something heartbreaking and sad. :(

I'm glad they are going to do more research into it. It sucks that the cancers that are less known don't get as much media coverage/donations/funding for research as the ones that are well known.

I hope Dylan beats this and that he gets to grow old and enjoy life.

I have some friends who left Duke to work at St. Judes in pediatric oncology research .... the same research many of the AR types oppose because it uses animals such as mice. :shock:

Oh man, that chaps my hide right there. I hope your friends are successful in their research, despite the insane demands of AR types.

Yet if it were an ARA who's child needed the research the ARA would make darn sure that it got done.

Kudos to your friends for what they are doing. I hope they make huge strides!
