Colton is a live wire! Nothing brings him down. He’s a horse fanatic and loves to ride his horse Bullseye. He loves rodeo and nearly any type of animal. He also likes old western movies and curious George. He’s a fighter!

I noticed Colton had a lazy eye and glow that could be seen in photos. Shortly after, he was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma is a form of cancer that develops in the retinas. The cause of retinoblastoma for some children is a genetic defect and for others a mutation of the chromosome 13 gene but any child can be diagnosed with retinoblastoma. Symptoms of retinoblastoma usually include a squint or a loss of vision. Colton has had chemotherapy, cryotherapy, and laser therapy. If his treatment is unsuccessful, he will have his eye removed.

I went from having a great, steady job to not being able to keep my employment because of constant trips to the hospital. Being a single parent means all of Colton’s care falls on me. Not being able to work during his treatment has been very trying but his fighting nature keeps me going!
