Fundraiser Details

Our son, brother and friend, Lorin Wayman, was recently diagnosed with stage 4 Undifferentiated Embryonal Sarcoma of the liver. This is a rare form of liver cancer with only 150 known cases. He has had 2 surgeries and recently finished his first course of chemotherapy. He has at least 6 months of chemo left and needs our faith, love and prayers. Lorin has always been a loving, fun and adventurous young man. He loves technology, being in nature and taking care of animals. He has many people in his life who love him and we would love and appreciate any support in helping us raise the money he needs to get him through his treatments. Lorin's 16th birthday is in June and we look forward to celebrating with him!

Can't believe I forgot this when writing the last update, but Lorin also GRADUATED Jr. High on the 5th of June! It was an emotional moment, watching him walk down to get his certificate when they called his name. A HUGE congrats to him! :-)

It's been a little over a month since the last update and wow! A lot has happened since. While getting ready for his fifth round of chemo, Lorin was told he didn't have to do it because his tumor had shrunk enough for surgery. Yes, surgery to remove the tumor from his liver!! The docs and all our family were so ecstatic! Miracles really do happen! So, Wednesday the 21st of May, Lorin went in for surgery. It was a very long 14 hour surgery. Lorin did great! The docs kept more liver than they thought they would, so, that's amazing! He's been in a lot of pain, so far, but he's being tough. He's definitely a strong young guy! We also just celebrated Lorin's 16th Birthday, June 10th! It was great to be able to have a good time with him and see his smiling face and goofy looks he likes to do. He still is going to be doing chemo, so, more updates will follow. As of now, though, his organs all look great and we are very positive that he will beat this! Keep praying for Lorin, he needs it and we're all so grateful for all of you who are supporting us during this time.

We all couldn't be more pleased and we would like to thank you all so very much, for your prayers, thoughts, kindness and donations. They truly don't go unnoticed. :-)

Lorin went through his third course of chemo this last weekend and he did awesome! He's a champ! The doctors gave us good news. His main tumor has shrunk 20%, his organs are functioning well and he gained a little weight! This is amazing and we are all so very pleased. We thank you all for your continued support and prayers. They go a long way. Lorin, too, is very thankful.

Lorin finished his second course of chemotherapy two days ago. He is very weak, but in good spirits. He thinks it's so awesome to see that some people have donated to help him get through this. He's also overjoyed knowing we are all praying for his health to return. Thank you all for your support!
