Jayden’s rare diagnosis
Jayden (age 12) complained of knee pain and developed a limp in October of 2020. After multiple x-rays, MRI’s and a biopsy, he was finally diagnosed with extremely rare tumors throughout his left leg called Pseudomyogenic Hemangioendothelioma in January of 2021. He has been unable to walk and in a wheelchair for almost a year now. Jayden is only the 20th person and the second youngest patient to ever be diagnosed with this particular cancer. Due to that, treatment options are extremely limited but we are hopeful that his doctors can save his leg.
Jayden has kept such a strong, fighting spirit throughout this entire ordeal and continues to bring a laugh and smile to every single person he meets.
