From D#2s FB page:
Update: 2015 will be the year that Tyler beats cancer. He has been diagnosed with a peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor (pPNET). We won’t know the stage until they complete the scans on Friday, along with additional testing, to see if it has spread to anywhere else in his body. We were told that he will likely be back in Chicago on Monday to have a port installed to begin chemotherapy as soon as possible. Please don’t google. I’ve done it, and shut it down almost immediately. The most reliable information will come from his oncologist on Friday (Dr. Walterhouse at Lurie).
Our boy is resilient beyond measure, and we will fight this with everything we have. We are all still trying to absorb this, so please understand if we aren’t able to return phone calls, texts, or messages. It’s all very overwhelming, and our sole focus is on Tyler. Our core tribe will be heading to Chicago tomorrow night, and we will be telling Tyler about his diagnosis on Friday. In the meantime, I will be looking into as many resources as possible to figure out how to explain to my precious boy that he has cancer. It all just seems grossly unfair, but our only choice is to trust in God, and in his medical team, and hold his hand through every step. Please continue to pray, think good thoughts, or whatever positive vibes you can put in the universe for our boy. I will be setting up a Caringbridge account in the next few days, and will post a link so we can keep everyone up to date as we go.
One more thing. Fuck Cancer.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Makes all the complaints I can come up with seem piddling,doesn’t it?
