Sociable, outgoing Colton loves playing baseball, riding go-karts, and staying active wherever he goes.
He came to St. Jude for treatment of an aggressive kidney cancer, Wilms tumor with displaced anaplesia, the most aggressive form of this kidney cancer.
“We're very fortunate that we were able to come here," said Colton's dad, Daniel. "He has received top-notch care that I don't believe we could duplicate anywhere.”
For Colton, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery to remove his left kidney didn’t prevent him from enjoying St. Jude and its kid-friendly atmosphere.
“I've never seen anything like it,” Colton said. “It’s awesome.”
Families, like Colton's, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
While at St. Jude, Colton gladly boarded a plane with his brother Landon for the 2019 Fantasy Flight to the North Pole, thanks to Delta Air Lines.
Colton loves making art, and his rocket painting really “took flight,” thanks to the use of Augmented Reality by St. Jude in its marketing materials.
Colton has now completed treatment and is back at home enjoying life.
