Just a month ago, 14-year-old Trevor Eder-Zdechlik was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). It’s a cancer of the bone marrow and blood. While it’s rare for kids to have CML, there are some effective oral chemotherapy options available, and his treatment plan is already underway, his parents said. The hope is that Trevor responds well and can avoid future procedures such as a bone marrow transplant.
“The reality is that there is no cure, and he’ll likely have to remain on these drugs for the rest of his life. Trevor’s positive attitude about beating CML is an inspiration to all of us,” his parents said.
Trevor plays football, basketball and baseball. When he’s not playing sports, he’s watching them. He is also an honor student.
We welcome Trevor and his family as he leads the Vikings onto the field before their match-up Thursday evening against the Washington Redskins.
