Ruston boy loves sports and St Jude
Christian Hardyway, 4, of Ruston, Louisiana, loves sports. The New
Orleans Saints fan wants to be a football player when he grows up.
Christian and his family have been calling St Jude Children's Research Hospital home since November of last year. That's when his parents learned he had a rare type of aggressive brain cancer.
Doctors at St. Jude were able to remove the tumor on his brain. However, during his followup visit doctors found another tumor on his spinal cord.
Christian starts his second round of chemo this week.The treatments are expected to continue until November.
