Will is an average four-year-old boy. He enjoys playing with superhero toys, running around, and being active. The difference, however, is that this spirited boy (nicknamed “Super Will”) gets tired during play needing frequent rest periods. Much of this is due to the fact that Will suffers from adrenal cancer, a rare cancer for children to have. In the summer of 2012, Will underwent surgery to remove a 2 1/2 pound mass from his stomach. Since that time, Will has received chemotherapy multiple times each week. The medication has also affected Will’s ability to hear clearly.
Luckily for Will, he has a very loving mother to care and nurture him. Fortunately, mom Kara was able to take a leave of absence from her teaching position at Westfield High in Westfield, NJ. However, a single income budget with significant medical bills has made it difficult to provide Will with those little extras that make a childhood memorable and fun.
