Something special about Austin:
Austin has refractory/progressive Stage IV. As of September 1, 2007 he has not been in remission. He has done 17 rounds of chemo, a 13 hour surgery to remove the main tumor. 2 months post op complications with chylous ascites/pleural effusion with chest tube. Antibody therapy, MIBG therapy, Hot antibody/avastin. Through all of this Austin has missed only a few soccer games and is ahead of grade level at school. He is a bright, cute and very funny kid who should not have to experience this.
