Vincent loved anything Star Wars. He loved playing with his brother and sister. He was the sweetest, most loving little boy.
One day, his eye turned in and he was having stroke-like symptoms. He was acting different. His parents took him to the doctor who sent them to the emergency room. He was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Because radiation treatment was not a possibility for Vincent, his family brought him home for hospice care. He was eleven years old.
Vincent is a hero because he was so strong and brave. He never complained. Vincent’s mother, Keren, wants other childhood cancer families to know that it is so hard. It takes a great support system. It takes a village.
