In late 2015, Gideon started to fuss more than usual.
His parents, Katie and Gary, assumed he was teething.
When Gideon developed bruises above his eyes and a lump on his head, they became alarmed.
Once he arrived at St. Jude, Gideon’s underwent surgery to remove the primary tumor.
His treatment also included a bone marrow transplant, radiation therapy and antibody therapy manufactured right on the St. Jude campus.
Gideon completed treatment in early 2017 and now visits St. Jude for yearly appointments.
He loves all things sports and started t-ball recently.
Gideon is also excited about becoming a big brother when his mom gives birth to a baby girl this fall.
