Topic: California 12 year old Christopher Wilkes diag w CC

I saw this of FB today, posted by the AMMF. Then went to Christopher's FB page which led to his link on caringbridge. Not many details as to type of CC but other family is reaching out for support. So unusual to have one so young with this diagnosis.

Thanks for pointing this out, Willow.  Stacie is in the process of contacting the family.  We are hoping that there is something special we can provide Christopher with.
Hugs,

Sadly, our young friend, Christopher, passed away this morning. He was 12. The family posted on Facebook. I'm so sad that anyone gets this damn cancer, but a 12 year old is really so unfair.

Impatient patient.

I agree. It really sucks. It's so unfair that this poor kid got such a short stick. My thoughts are with his family. I cannot even begin to understand how they feel right now.

It is incredibly sad.  I have no words to describe it.
