Many of you may remember my son was severely injured in a soccer game a little over 3 yrs ago. He went through multiple surgeries and did what the doctors said was not possible. Last year he resumed playing soccer. Unfortunately this past September he was diagnosed with a non cancerous condition/mass in his chest - the week after his 13th birthday- that requires a very complicated surgery. He will be losing parts of up to 11 ribs and a very small portion of his sternum. That means he gains permanent titanium plates in his chest. He goes in next Tuesday and has surgery Wednesday morning. Its a very dangerous surgery that comes with a yr recovery. We'd appreciate any and all prayers on his behalf. Sorry for any errors. We thought we had 4 wks until surgery , but a call earlier today changed that and today has been extremely busy. Thank you.
