    James Pollard update

    I know that some time ago there was a thread on Jamie's son James condition, well all CF should send a prayer to James Pollard and his family. I found out today that the chemo he is taking is not working. The kid is a huge inspiration to everyone and has the greatest attitude!! The tumor he has is beginning to grow again and the only way to remove it is by surgery as it is such a slow growing tumor that chemo does not work on this. The big issue is that the tumor is in an area that with the risk associated with it, he may not be able to walk again. My wife lost her mother to cancer a couple of years ago so I can understand what they must be going through. He is one tough kid and has been a fighter through all of this. Please keep him and his family in your prayers! Keep the fight James!!

    Re: James Pollard update

    Where is his tumor again? I have a good friend who went through a really tough battle a couple years back. He had a baseball size tumor on his optic nerve, obviously inoperable. He was given 6 months to live and luckily survived, and to this day is cancer free. I hope this works out for James and the Pollard family. We need to find a cure for this damn disease. My prayers are with him.

    Re: James Pollard update

    It's incredible how something so small can take down the strongest people. That's what I said last year when my grandmother was in the hospital during her last days of fighting cancer. Prayers are with them.

    Sending lots of prayers to James and the Pollard family.

    They've had a tough go of it and they certainly deserve some peace.

    Re: James Pollard update

    I am so sorry to hear of this. I was hopeful that the last surgery had taken care of the problem. That is one tough family.

    God Bless.

    Awful, awful, awful. As a parent, I can't even imagine watching a child go through something like that. Thoughts and prayers.
