Don't tell cancer mom prayer doesn't Cialis Ireland work
When we last left Cole McCully, the boy was headed to New York for a dicey, hours long cancer Viagra Generic Review operation. At the same time, a wide swath of Orange County was sending up prayers that he would survive.
It was last April that he contracted a childhood cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma, so rare that every year only 350 cases are diagnosed in the United States. The fast growing, multi fingered tumor simply covered his insides, from his heart to his pancreas.
The September surgery would be at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Neighbors, friends, Buy Kamagra classmates, and members of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Orange, where Julie works, rallied around Cole, putting together enough money for the boy's Cialis 20mg Ireland parents to accompany him to New York.
More "buy cheap jintropin online" fundraisers were held. "Pray4Cole" bumper stickers began appearing everywhere. Members of the Angels, the boy's favorite team, began dropping by his bedside at Children's Hospital of Orange County. And then, just days before the surgery, when I first spoke to Julie McCully, she had begged people to continue praying hard for her son.
On Monday afternoon, Cole, now 14, came bounding down the stairs of the family's Anaheim home, gave me a big hello and vigorously shook my hand.
"Don't tell me," his mother told me, "that prayer doesn't work."
The surgery lasted 8 hours, the surgeons meticulously cutting away the giant tumor, prying its invading fingers away from the sac that surrounds the boy's heart. They reconstructed his diaphragm. And while they had the boy open on the table, radiologists performed their work from his throat to his belly button.
"Show him your scar," Julie McCully Buy Jintropin tells her son. He dutifully pulls up his shirt to display a long, remarkably faint line that runs from his bellybutton almost to his Adam's apple.
"It was such a long day. It was just my husband and me," Julie McCully said, "yet I knew Cole was cloaked in prayer."
Every scan taken since the operation indicates he is cancer free. To make certain, physicians have scheduled two more chemotherapy treatments, each three weeks apart.
"He will then take only oral treatment, little pills, that will last anywhere from 1 years to 4 years," Julie McCully said. "If one cancer cell is hiding out, say, somewhere in a bone, it will come back and we don't want that."
Cole wanted to tell me a story.
The day before his surgery, last Sept. 12, his dad decided to take him to a Yankees game, he said. They were playing the Boston Red Sox.
"That day, I wasn't scared or nervous. I was excited. I just wanted to have the surgery, get that thing out, be done with it and get on with remission."
Father and son took the subway to the stadium. Cole dressed in a Red Sox jersey.
"I am an Angels fan," he explained. "But I also like the Red Sox because Mike Napoli and John Lackey, who were on the team, were my favorite players when they were on Acheter Viagra Bruxelles the Angels."
On the train, Cole noticed this woman looking at him. It was because of the Red Sox jersey. She was from Australian Generic Cialis Boston, and she loved the Sox. Her name was Bonnie, and she chatted the entire train ride with Erik and Cole McCully.
"I gave her my dad's email so she could stay in touch," Cole remembered.
The woman later told her friend, Dennis, of the boy and what he was going through. Taken aback, Dennis then told his friend, Joe, who is president of the Torch Foundation, an organization that helps families with children facing life threatening illnesses.
