Unfortunately, sometimes when we least expect it life takes us in a different direction. Only days before Thanksgiving, and just before his 12th Birthday, a visit to the doctor resulted in life changing news for Gabe, his family, and friends.
At 12 years old, Gabe Patnoi was diagnosed with cancer, Ewing’s Sarcoma in the heel of his right foot. Ewing Sarcoma is a very rare type of cancer that grows in the bones or the soft tissue around the bones affecting only 200 children a year in the U.S. Treatment includes multi drug chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. The good news for Gabe is that the cancer has not spread and is not in the bone marrow. But, if not treated immediately consequences could be devastating.
The next year is going to be difficult for Gabe and his family. He will undergo one year of intense chemotherapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. This type of treatment comes with short term and long term side effects which too takes a toll on everyone, especially Gabe. He is being treated by world re-known oncologists all of whom specialize in sarcomas. The Sarcoma Team at MSKCC is recognized as leaders in the pediatric cancer community for their research and ability to treat the disease. We pray they will lead Gabe through this battlefield to victory.
