Kegan's Story:(10/29/09) Kegan was diagnosed with cancer (metastatic adenocarcinoma of unknown origin) on his 13th birthday, August 26, 2009. He is scheduled to undergo 2 years of chemotherapy at Doernbecher Children's Hospital as well as holistic and nutritional treatment at the NCNM Natural Health Center. Message from Kegan's dad: I'd like to extend a special thanks to the Sparrow Clubs who are doing such amazing work for so many sick children. Another special thanks for the staff and students at Forrest Grove High School for having chosen to adopt Kegan as your sparrow. I can't express, without tears, the gift of hope you have given me and our family. Your efforts will allow Kegan to get treatment at the Northwest Center for natural Medicine in Portland. Kegan is covered by two insurance companies but Naturopathic care is not covered. Those who have done best with adenocarcinoma have had both Chemotherapy as well as naturopathic care. Your help and efforts are making a direct difference to Kegan's well being and future. Thank you so much from the bottom our hearts. Message from Kegan:. Here at the computer to get to know you kids at Forest Grove HS. My dad and I are both going to be Devils for Halloween. Im a big fan of Jeff Duhnam the comedian and have my own puppets and have written some of my own jokes and do an impression of John Travolta from saturday night fever. My favorite bands are Mettalica, Green Day, Beastie Boys, and Finger Eleven. MY favorite color is blood red just like my dad or maybe black. I like video games and play XBox 360 alot these days. I have a tutor that comes a few hours a week but I wish I could be in school and hanging with my friends.
