This is the AJ Fuller Fund. The funds will be used for AJ's medical expenses. Thank you for your support!

AJ has been fighting Medulloblastoma, a form of Brain Cancer, since he was just 5 years old. He was in treatment from Sept 2007 to May 2008. In Feb 2008, AJ was cancer free.

In Feb 2010, AJ started to complain about pain in his leg. After months of talking to several doctors, nothing had come of this. In early July, AJ's leg had swollen, and he couldn't walk.

Only July 3, 2010, with his father deployed some 7,000 miles away, we learned that AJ has cancer, again. In August 2010, after extensive testing, we learned that AJ now had Metastasized Medulloblastoma Outside of the CNS (Central Nervous System). AJ is just one of 15 - 20 reported cases...Worldwide. The cancer is no longer in his brain and spine, but rather in his soft tissues, bones and lymph nodes.

Being this rare, the doctors informed us that there is No Cure. We were told that AJ would be with us until October 2010, at the very latest. During that time, it was highly unlikely for AJ to ever walk, again. But he did walk. AJ was even running, again.

By early 2011, his cancer was stable. In July 2011, AJ's cancer returned. Invading his bladder and kidney area.

With this new battle, we will be required to travel to and from the hospital, more frequently. In the past year, we have traveled 30,000 + medical miles. This fundraiser is to help with the medical travel, medical services that the insurance will no longer cover and special dietary needs.
