Let’s hope the option comes to all children with autism or cancer, everywhere, very soon.
The following is an anonymous letter written by the father of an an 11 year old autistic boy with a tumor in his brain:
“First, thank you for the opportunity to share my story.
Actually my situation is twofold. My son’s story first.
In February of 2011 my autistic 9 year old son had a seizure in the middle of the night, first one ever. We found that he had a “brain mass” after an MRI.
He had surgery that March, and they removed most of the tumor. They could not get it all surgically because of the sensitive location of the mass. After 2 years it had grown slightly, so we were presented with the option of 6 weeks of radiation, which was our only legal option at the time. We’ll find out soon how the treatment did. Lousy way for an 11 year old to spend his summer.
