Colby Doran update 8-9-2020 FROM AARON DORAN:

As most of you know Colby was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Ewings Sarcoma. His first diagnosis of Cancer was on December 23, 2019. Shortly after his diagnosis, he started his Chemo Therapy treatments. But unfortunately due to the aggressive Cancer on March 13, 2020 his right leg had to be amputated about 6" below the pelvis. And thru it all he has managed to keep his motivation to press forward.

The Cancer from his leg Methasized and moved into his lungs, causing lesions. Colby had a CT scan a couple of weeks ago of his lungs in preparation of his next Chemo round. The CT showed new small lesions, and some growth from the two orginal lesions. So Chemo has been postponed and Colby in now waiting for his T-cell treatment to begin.

And as Colby does, he presses on. He has recently returned to work not letting losing his leg keep him from living a normal life. But this week he had been having some headaches at work. So Wednesday he took the day off to rest up. Thursday morning his headache was too severe to even open his eye. So he was taken to Island Hospital for a CT scan of his head.
The results from his scan showed a 4cm tumor near his Occipital Lobe. Hes was rushed to University of Washington medical center and admitted to the ICU.

More CT scans and an MRI revealed two tumors. A large tumor about the size of a plum, and resting just behind it a smaller marble sized tumor. Colby has been on Blood Thinners due to some clotting associated with his leg Amputation, and for that reason the medical team had to postpone any operations until the Thinners has cycled out of his system.

So yesterday, Saturday August 8th Colby underwent an operation to remove the Brain Tumors. The 4 hour surgery went well. The medical team feels confident that they had removed all of the Cancerous material. Within a few minutes of waking from his surgery, Colby was asking questions and trying to make conversation. He currently is still in a lot of discomfort, but doing well. Today, Sunday Aug 9th Colby is doing Physical Therapy, talking, and snacking.

Please keep Mr. Colby in your prayers.

I am going to ask for a couple of things..
Live every day to its fullest, tomorrow isn't guaranteed.
Never miss an opportunity to tell someone how important they are to you. It could be the last conversation you ever have with them.
