On March 7, 2014 our 8 year old son Madox was diagnosed with a rare form of brain tumour called DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma). This tumour sits on the brain stem, intertwined within the pons. There is no cure. Our family was left devastated.
Madox grew up with his dad Marco, mom Suzanne and best friend and older brother Valin. Madox was an active, goofy, happy little guy. He was always jumping around and laughing at just about anything. He and Valin are only 14 months apart, and did everything together. Madox was so creative, filling our walls and fridge door with all his artwork he was so proud of. He loved to wrap his legs around his neck just to see people’s reactions. It was always the first thing he would show his new teacher every year.
Madox was an absolute snuggle bug and would take snuggling on the couch with his parents, than sleeping over at a friend house any day. He LOVES his family, and told us everyday.
