We are honored to introduce Tobias to our Cancer Kickers family! This handsome little boy is three years old. Tobias was diagnosed with B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 25, 2020.
A couple of days prior to his diagnosis, Tobias began complaining of stomach pains. In addition, Tobias’ parents started noticing some small bruises on his body, he started having blood clots coming out of his nose, he was pale and had lost his appetite. It was at this time, Tobias’ parents knew they needed to see a doctor. The labs drawn at the doctor confirmed that Tobias’ white blood cell count was very high. Tobias’ parents were instructed to take him to the hospital immediately. Once there, additional tests were run. These tests substantiated this family’s worst fear - Tobias did in fact have Leukemia. Tobias immediately began treatment at Primary Children’s Hospital after receiving his Leukemia diagnosis. His treatment is expected to last a little over three years. Although this diagnosis has been very hard on this family they remain hopeful.
