As told by his mom, Sis
was diagnosed with GT in September 2005, at 1 1/2. He
he has had a rough time of it. He is a very happy and
otherwise healthy boy.
He loves Lighting McQueen and Mater from Cars, and his
all time favorite thing is the destruction derby. If its
an outdoor activity he is all for it. Wyatt loves gocarts,
derby cars, tractors, riding his bike, baseball, soccer,
and football. While Wyatt has had a difficult time in
his short life, he lives it to the fullest. We do not
limit what he does because if his time here is short we
want to make sure that he has been able to do what he
wanted to do.

night, with all the usual precautions, which have lead to
lots of blood transfusions and platelets as of late.

done the formal donor search and had 1 possible donor
in Europe. That test came back the day after Christmas
as not a close enough match. We are awaiting a meeting
with the donor program to see where we are going from
here. Wyatt has been put at high risk because the doctors
are afraid that if he does have a bleed that they will
not be able to stop it.
