Meet our Champion Child, Gabe
Before Gabe's second birthday, his mom noticed he suddenly wasn't eating and it appeared he had a severe stomach ache. His parents took him to the hospital where they learned he had a volleyball sized tumor on his liver. During surgery, the tumor, as well as more than 60% of his liver, was removed. He stayed in the hospital for two weeks and then had a slow recovery with some complications. Gabe returned to the hospital for an additional surgery to re-route his bile ducts. Every August, he returns to Children's Hospital for a scan to confirm that the tumor hasn't returned.
Today, he is happy and healthy.
He's started playing soccer and loves to eat pepperoni pizza. When he grows up, he wants to be a monster truck driver and a law enforcement officer.
