Right now, doctors at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital are caring for Ethan Bibb, an 8-year-old boy with Medulla Blastoma, a rare brain cancer in children.
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Ethan Bibb missed his own fund-raiser Saturday. The fund raiser was an effort to help his out of work parents, who are pitted against some tough odds.
Kids are molded by their parents, but every now and then, parents pick up a little something from their youngsters.
"He is the toughest ... If he can do it, I can do it," said Robin Bibb, Ethan's mother.
Right now, doctors at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital are caring for Ethan Bibb, an 8-year-old boy with Medulla Blastoma, a rare brain cancer in children.
It's the very reason his friends, family, and even older sister are celebrating this weekend, but Ethan was supposed to be there.
"He was kinda upset, but he wanted me to come, so I could tell him about it and who all came," said Lanna Bibb, Ethan's Older Sister.
Those who came are caring people who want to held Dad, an out of work contractor, and Ethan, a baseball fan who dreams of running, but for now, can't even walk.
Ethan's newly diagnosed with brain cancer. In fact, just this past March, doctors removed the primary tumor, about the size of a golf ball. Now, daily radiation and chemo treatments are attacking the remnants growing deep in his brain, and spine.
