In September 2007, Jarod was an energetic, seven year old first grader that loved Spider Man, Hulk and playing games on the computer. Then on September 22nd he was diagnosed with a Posterior Fossa Mass and had TOTAL removal of his tumor, which was found to be Medulloblastoma, or brain cancer. After his surgery, Jarod was unable to swallow, speak or move his left side. However, today he has made huge strides towards a near full recovery, and just received results of a MRI scan that showed NO SIGN OF CANCER!!
