1. Takheo Takes Down Cancer

This story is a real telling about a tiny boy I call my brother. We're a family of 5. Momma May, Dada Reynar, I'm November, our sister April and then we have Takheo, the boy this story will be all about. I turned 15 on November 26th (I blame my parents for that!). April was oddly born in April, on the 8th of 2008. Then there's our baby brother Takheo. He was born on October 18th, 2014. He was born with the biggest bluest eyes I've ever seen. He's the most loving little man. When any of us come out of the shower he'll ask us if he can dry our hair for us. He will give us random kisses and hugs. He will tell us he loves us every day. But just two weeks ago Takheo started showing tiny symptoms of things not being as they usually are, like his left eye being off. He would still be his normal happy, loving and wild self. The eye didn't cause suspicion until he started excessively throwing up all day and his smile became more of a half smile. The left side of his face started looking off and with the throwing up, we took him to the doctors office. After that visit things just speeded up to 100 miles per hour. That's why I'm writing this. Not to gain pity. I don't demand anyone even read this. It's more to understand how our baby brother ended here. And what happens next. When this chapter of our lives is done and over with, I'll read this all again. But on December 18th, we finally got the diagnosis. DIPG. Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. An inoperable brain tumor, with a 0% survival rate. We know deep in our hearts that Takheo's chances of survival are absolutely zero, but somewhere else deep in our hearts we also know that Takheo needs for us to have hope in him, believe that he can kick this cancers ass, even with no concrete hope at all. Takheo will be receiving radiation treatment for a month or two maybe, we aren't certain, since the treatment depends on how fast and how greatly Tak's tumor responds to the treatment. Radiation cannot completely remove the cancer since it also affects all the healthy cells around it so we need to be careful with it, but it will hopefully give him an extra 3 months to live. As of right now Tak has been given 5 months to live.
