Sonora, CA — Community members have been rallying around seven month old Caden Owsley.
Caden, the son of James and Stephanie Owsley of Sonora, is battling neuroblastoma which is a form of cancer found in infants.
Stephanie saysWhen he was four and a half months old, we noticed his stomach was getting really big. My mom noticed that it seemed really hard, so she told me to mention it at his next check up.”
Stephanie says that sure enough, Caden´s liver had become enlarged. The doctors in Sonora then sent the family to Stanford Medical Center where Caden is now taking chemotherapy.
Both Stephanie and James were forced to give up their jobs because they were spending too much time driving to and from appointments.
A fund has been set up in Caden´s name at Mother Lode Bank.
