Adam and Jessica are the proud parents of two precious boys: Landon (6) and Bennett (3). Here is Landon’s story as told by his mom :
In November of 2015, at the age of 5, Landon was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor – Medulloblastoma. He underwent a 13 hour surgery that successfully removed all of the tumor, followed by 30 intensive radiation treatments and 6 months of chemotherapy. He finished treatment in August of 2016 and remains cancer free! He has had to relearn how to walk, talk and eat as a result of the surgery that saved his life. We are so proud of our Incredible Landon!
When Landon was diagnosed, our world was turned upside down. There were definitely more tears than smiles in the beginning. Healing with Hope and Happiness has been amazing to us – they helped brighten our darkest days. The Whitecaps first pitch experience was unbelievable! Definitely an emotional moment to watch your child that couldn’t move his arms and legs just months prior, throw the ball over home plate. He proudly waved to the crowd and really soaked in all of the star treatment that he received day!
Surgery took away Landon’s ability to walk and because of the radiation he received, it’s important that Landon remains protected from the sun. HHH gifted us a wagon that has adjustable seats, cup holders and a nice big shade on top – it fits our needs perfectly and has made it possible for us to go on lots of outdoor adventures. We’ve also made many trips to John Ball Zoo and Frederick Meijer Gardens, all thanks to the generosity of HHH.
We are gearing up for our trip to Great Wolf Lodge this weekend! We have never been and the boys are so looking forward to it! We can’t thank you enough for everything that you have done for us! You have given us precious memories that will last a lifetime and so much hope for our future.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! ❤
