This is a blog about Alec Unsicker, and his battle with cancer. Five years ago when Alec was eleven years old it was discovered that he had a cancerous brain tumor called Medullablastoma. Somewhere between 250 and 500 children are diagnosed with this each year in the United States. Soon after they found his tumor they performed surgery to remove it on May 4th, 2009. It was a successful surgery, but it still needed to be followed with chemo therapy and radiation. After a year of going through all that crap and suffering things that only other cancer patients can sympathize with the kid pulled through.
In November of 2014 he went to the hospital to do his last yearly check up to make sure everything was still looking good. After going through the same routine they had gone through with each check up over the years, they rediscovered the same cancer only this time it was located in the lower portion of his spine.
