Wes was born in Newport News, VA two weeks early on December 21, 2005. He is a fun-loving, intelligent, and compassionate young boy with the faith like no other. He enjoys soldiers, star wars, and anything involving animals/bugs. He became a big brother on March 13, 2011. He enjoys playing with his two chihuahuas (Marley and Mixie) and yorkie (Gracie). Up until June 24, 2011 Wes was an extremly healthy boy, hardly even having as much as an ear infection. Shortly after graduating preschool in May 2011 he began to feel abdominal pain and his appetite grew smaller and smaller. After being told it was constipation by a physician at an emergency care center, we took him in to his pediatrician two weeks later. Dr. Baust and Dr. Butcher both looked over him as a team and decided we needed an xray instead of just brushing it aside. An x-ray revealed a mass of some kind in his left abdomen, and we were soon sent to CHKD in Norfolk, VA. There we were informed our five year old son had a large mass in his left side that had been pushing on all of his inside organs causing him to feel full. They named it stage 3 high risk neuroblastoma. Soft tissue was found on one of his lymph nodes later bumping him to the low end of stage 4. Today Wes has begun his fight with cancer, and is kicking butt!
This new path we are about to start on is going to be new territory, but I know with our trust in God everything will be okay. Currently we are a one income family, but have currently been out of work to take care of our sweet boy. I have faith that everything will work out!
Wes relapsed on 2/4/14 when they found a small spot on his upper abdomen during a routine scan.
