Cayden is a 16-year-old who is a Sophomore at Thatcher High School. He enjoys hanging out with his friends, football and video games. Cayden was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma In October at Phoenix children’s hospital. Cayden has been coughing for several weeks nonstop and had a huge lump on his left side of his neck. The lump just continued to grow and no antibiotics were helping.
We decided to go to the ER where right away they knew he needed more testing so the Er sent us to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Cayden had two biopsies and scans. He has a wonderful team of doctors that reassure us that he will get through this and be cancer free. He is on the 3rd round of chemo of 5 rounds.
He has been in the hospital twice with chemotherapy side effects. Hoping we can get through the next rounds without hospitalization. He is a wonderful kid and he can’t wait till he can just be a teenager again!
