The local community and family of Gage Driskell are pulling together to help this young man beat this horrible disease. Please support us!

Gage Driskell was diagnosed with medulloblastoma ( a form of brain cancer) on March 10th 2011. Gage underwent a resection of the tumor on March 14th and the results were a rare condition known as posterior fossa syndrome. This condition left Gage unable to move at all for several months. Gage underwent 6 weeks of daily radiation treatments and 15 months of intense chemo therapy. Gage finished his chemo 3 months ago and had a brief remission in which he worked very hard on learning to walk again as well as improving his speech. On September 21st 2012 our family got the news that his cancer was back, he has 3 new tumors in his brain.
Gage is a strong amazing 10 year old that lives with his dad Jacob and his big brother Trevor. Everyday we have with him is a joy, he has kept a smile on his face and good humor despite the hardships he faces. We do not know what the next step is but it will include a new round of intense chemo and most likely more radiation treatments. As his father I am not able to work because caring for my little man takes all of my time. Gages insurance covers the majority of his medical expenses but it does not allow any help for keeping a roof over his head or transportation ands other expenses. I would like to thank everyone for there support in allowing me to be able to concentrate all of my time to caring for Gage. Thank you and God bless.
