Join us on Tuesday at 1pm EST as we talk with Kim about her journey and the fight that Ethan went through and how Kim Jostad is fighting back after the loss of her son Ethan and how you can help Ethan's foundation and other kids with cancer 46 kids diagnosed and 7 will die

In August 2009, Ethan Jostad (7yrs old at the time) was diagnosed with Stage IV Rhabdomyosarcoma (“RMS”), which is a cancerous tumor that originates in the soft tissues of the body. Ethan had a large tumor in his chest and a few smaller tumors in his abdomen. RMS is very rare and occurs in roughly 40 kids annually in the United States. Kim and Chris Jostad have worked with Doernbecher Children...’s Hospital and Sloan-Kettering in Manhattan to create a treatment plan to not only clean out the cancer but to prevent the very aggressive cancer from returning. Although his treatment has been very aggressive and scans were clear in April 2011, the cancer has come back with a vengeance. Cancer is now in the bones of both legs, throughout his chest cavity and there is a 2 inch tumor above his kidney causing extreme pain.

We fought with everything we could do for Ethan. Our hearts are FOREVER broken. Ethan earned his Angel Wings August 8th, 2011... We will continue our FIGHT against cancer in Ethan's HONOR. We MISS our son immensely and the open wound aches of pain. Cancer you stole our son from us! http://www.ethansarmy.org/
