Jason was diagnosed with kidney cancer back in March 2011, just a few days after also finding out he was soon to be a father. At that time, he had his right kidney removed and did not require any further treatment since his cancer was contained in the kidney. Jason celebrated being CANCER FREE. A few months later, Christy (his wife) gave birth to their first child, Luke. For almost two years he had CT scans every few months to make sure the cancer was not growing back.
Unfortunately, this past January a CT scan showed that in the area where his kidney was removed there was a small lesion that looked suspicious. He had a biopsy performed and the pathology confirmed that his cancer was back.
February 25, he went in for surgery to remove the cancer and things did not go as planned. When the surgeon opened him up, they found that cancer had invaded his gallbladder, liver, vena cava, colon and back muscles. They decided to close him up without removing anything, have him heal, then start chemo to shrink the cancer and attempt surgery again later to remove the cancerous tissue.
The Oncologist has suggested a clinical trial where he will receive 4 weeks of chemo and 2 weeks off. After completing his first round of chemo, they will scan him again and hopefully see that his cancer has SHRUNK (prayers) and then decide whether to do another round or try surgery again. Jason has SARCOMATOID RENAL CELL CANCER, which is very aggressive and very difficult to treat. The best chance for a cure is to have the cancer removed surgically.
The challenge ahead will be physically, emotionally, and financially draining for Jason and Christy. They will have numerous trips to the hospital for chemo, lab draws and appointments. Christy is pregnant with their second child due at the end of April (the gender is a surprise). He will be away from work quite a bit and has already ran out of vacation time. Let's Pay it forward while we can.
