OKLAHOMA CITY—Stan is just 2 years old, but in the fight of his life against a form of childhood brain cancer.

His family calls him "Super Stan” because he is always curious and on the move. Last fall, Stan started having problems.

"He was stumbling,” says Lindsey Evans, Stan’s mother.

Then, the toddler starting throwing up after meals.

Stan’s symptoms were worsening, so the family’s pediatrician sent them to the emergency room for answers.

A brain scan revealed a parent’s worst fear.

"There was the tumor, size of a quarter. Right there on his brain,” says Evans.

Doctors at the Jimmy Everest Center diagnosed Stan with Medulloblastoma.

It was the beginning of a tough battle ahead for the little boy.

Doctors came up with a unique plan to help “Super Stan” get through what would be an extremely intense treatment.

Find out more about Stan’s courageous battle with brain cancer and chemotherapy.
