In Memory Of
Harry James Geddings
Born June 26, 1992
Died November 21, 1997
Harry James Geddings, was diagnosed at the age of 3 years.
It was just two weeks after his birthday when we found
out that he had a brain tumor. It was found by accident
at Childrens hospital Oakland, because we got tired of
the doctors telling us that it was the flu or something like
that. My wife and I know that it was something more
than that. That night he went into some real bad convultions and slipped into a coma in the middle
of the night. His brain had swelled up so bad that they
had to put a shunt in, by an emergency surgery...other
wise his brain would have burst!!!! After they got the
swelling down a week later, they took him in for brain
surgery and got less then 40% removed. At the time it
was found...it was the size of a good size peach they said.
They also put him on the vancristen, cisplatume, VP16.
Then they sent him to UCSF for 30 focal radiation
treatments. They also had him in a couple of study's
with different types of new chemotherapy.
They did all that they could, but at the age of five and
a half he died here at home in my arm's with a house
full of people that he loved so much...and they all loved
him just as much. That was on Nov. 21, 1997. In all the
things that he went through...never one time did I
or any one else ever see him fight his treatments, the
doctors, or the nurses. He always had a smile on his
face and always, always had good things to put out
in the world!!!!!!
We miss you very much Buddy Boy...
we all do so very much.
It is not the will of your Father in heaven
that one of these little ones should perish.
