Dominic Liples is a 8 year old boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in March of 2016. He underwent surgery to remove as much of the mass as possible. He then completed a round of radiation and chemotherapy treatments to attempt to shrink the remaining tumor.
On June 29th, after a 6 week break from treatment, Dominic began what was intended to be a year long course of chemotherapy to continue to treat the tumor.
On October 19th, the doctors informed Dominic and family that the tumor had grown despite the chemo treatments. On October 26th Dominic had emergency surgery to remove more of the tumor. In early November he began immunotherapy treatments.
In early December the family learned there was continued tumor growth despite the immunotherapy. The tumor had spread to the other side of Dominic's brain and his condition was rapidly declining. Dominic spent the next few days with his loved ones surrounding him. He passed away in his parents arms in the early morning of December 7, 2016.
