The family and friends of Maddux are coming together to raise money to help Maddux beat cancer. Any support helps!
Maddux Hescock is a loving, funny and smart six-year-old who is in a long, up-hill battle against rhabdomyosarcoma. He has one large tumor that is inoperable at this time, as well as many other masses.
Life changed very quickly for Maddux when he was taken to the doctor on Thursday October 24th for suspected bronchitis or pneumonia. When the doctor listened to his breathing, however, she suspected something much worse. They were transferred to a children's hospital for more tests and Friday morning they were given the diagnosis of sarcoma. Because the mass has invaded one of his lungs, his airway is restricted, so chemo was started Saturday night in hopes that the tumor will respond well and start shrinking. Things are progressing quickly and aggressively but we remain optimistic that he will be on the road to recovery in the frame of a year.
This is every parent's worst nightmare and any help is appreciated and will ease the burden so that Stacie and Josiah can focus on staying strong for Maddux as they all fight to beat this.
Donations will help with expenses related to Maddux's treatment such as travel, lost wages and meals.
We appreciate all of the love and support and we know that Maddux is a strong little boy that will do all he can to beat this!
