KSON Going Gold for Gideon Robinson

September 6, 2016

Gideon is a unique little guy with a heart of gold. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) on November 17th, 2015. Before then he was a very healthy little boy, but quickly began to have bruises, lack of appetite and weight loss, headaches and shortness of breath. He was in bad shape, had over 85% cancer cells in his body and was put in the very high risk category.

So far with the help of chemotherapy, Gideon has responded very well and we are just about to start the maintenance phase of his treatment which will entail daily multiple chemotherapy medications as well as monthly spinal taps and chemo infusions. This will end in 2019. Although it sounds like a very long road, we have chosen to make it an amazing one. Gideon has helped in the fight against childhood cancer with multiple fundraising events for Rady Children's Hospital. He also is one of the most caring kids, always consoling the others that are having a hard time. Lots of kids are withdrawn and scared when they are first diagnosed, and Gideon knows how to get them out of their shells and have some fun! His motto is to spread the love everywhere.
