CRAIG, Colo. (KKCO) - At just 10 months little Landon Hatcher is fighting an adult-sized battle.
The infant was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. He went into Children's Hospital in Denver Jan. 26 and after an MRI, doctors found a 3-inch brain tumor and removed 80 percent of it through surgery. A pathology report shows he has a type 3 ependymoma brian tumor. Treatment is another surgery Feb. 9 to remove the rest of the tumor and radiation treatments.
While he's struggling to in the hospital in Denver, his family is hoping the community will help him fight here at home.
His parents, who live in Craig, do not have health insurance and are struggling with his medical bills. Anyone able to help him can make a donation to the Landon M. Hatcher Benefit Donation Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank.
For more information you can contact his grandmother, Terrie Hatcher, at 970/618.1760. She respectfully requests his parents not be contacted as they are dealing with an overwhelming situation, but appreciate everyone's support.
