    External radiation

    Radiation

    Scary situation to have mask made to fit face and felt tight during treatment. Treatment was everyday for 6 weeks so yes it impacted our lives but we went with hope in our hearts becasue this was his treatment. We feel this is "our cancer" not just our sons journey because our love for him is so enormous and he is our child.

    Painless Experience: Disagree

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    These questions are hard for a mother to answer but I know taking the chemo pills was not easy to do. Is it getting easier, yes. Side affects I'm sure there are but he is finding strategies to deal and because he has a sense of humor and is so brave he is taking control over this part of his life.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
