Meet our soccer star who was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (Very rare cancer that is a cancerous tumor in a bone). Jayden has it in his left tibia. He was playing soccer in PE when he tripped and ended up at the ER. It was then they found he had this cancer in March 2017. He has had platelets and blood transfusions and is in physical therapy now. Jayden had his last chemo in the end of Jan. He has had 4 surgeries (to remove the tumor, skin graph, muscle replacement). His entire leg is in a brace locked at 60 degrees to prevent the bone from breaking. No weight bearing on it.
Jayden’s parents are Alicia and Sergio from Tampa and has 3 siblings all at home.
Everyone here at CARS Racin’ For A Dream welcome these two precious children to our family. We will be raising money all year to help these kids and their families as they face an uphill battle. We ask that you all keep them in your prayers and hope to see you at one of many fundraisers we will have this year!
