6-year-old fights leukemia, with brother's help
Everything in the Greene family was going pretty well until that Sunday morning in late November.
At least, Treshell and Tim thought so.
“But there’s denial, I think,” Treshell says.
“We were sitting at the breakfast table,” and she noticed the enlarged lymph node on the neck of her 6-year-old son, Jacob. She’ll never forget that moment.
“Jacob kept glancing back to look at television,” she says, and that lymph node was in her line of vision, and she pointed it out to Tim.
“It was two months after we thought he’d licked it, at least hoped he’d licked it,” she says. “His bone marrow had come back clear, and that was the end of treatment. He’d been on chemo for 21/2 half years.
In her heart, she knew the leukemia was back.
