Leon

Leon is a spunky lil guy that stole our hearts in the Fall of 2018! When Leon was born, his family learned that he had a rare form of mesablostic nephroma which is a disease the affects the renal system. As a result, at only 6 days old, he underwent surgery to remove his kidney and hopefully stop the disease from spreading any further. Since that time, doctors discovered that another form of cancer was attacking and destroying the bones in Leon’s leg. He is currently sporting the coolest little boot on his leg that we have ever seen, but that certainly has not slowed him down! He is running around and causing your typical 2 year old havoc, and that makes us all happy! Leon is currently undergoing treatment at St. Jude’s where doctors are hopeful they can treat his cancer and not have to amputate his leg. Because of the immense financial burdens placed on this family with mom having to donate all of her time to his care, we were thrilled to make a donation to help ease their worries,  and allow this family to concentrate on his health and healing. We are all rooting for you big guy!
