Harland's Story

An image

"I’m starting to feel much better. I don’t have to get chemotherapy anymore and I don’t feel as sick. My name is Harland Fraser and I was diagnosed with a brain tumor this year. The kind of cancer that I had is only in 4% of kids who have cancer, so it’s kind of rare, but it’s also not as hard to treat. 90% of cases are cured with a combination of treatment. That didn’t make it easier when I first got sick though.

 Earlier this year, I had trouble balancing, I wasn’t feeling well and got sick all the time. I couldn’t focus on things and it started to affect how I was thinking. I couldn’t even follow some simple instructions, so we were all pretty worried. When the doctors told my Mom and Dad it was cancer, they were so scared. I was scared too, but I’m pretty brave, so I was ok. Our first reaction was shock, then we actually had a tiny sense of relief because we finally knew what was making me so sick. We knew that I could get treatment."
