Coulter Micheal Hnatt is a fun, loving, and energetic 8 year old, who loves playing with dinosaurs, fossils, and trains when he's not doing homework for 2nd grade!
When he was 4, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor in his 4th ventricle near his brainstem. He had brain surgery to remove the tumor and months of proton radiation therapy. One year after radiation therapy, two new tumors grew in the lateral ventricles of his brain. These tumors were removed after 3 different brain surgeries and weeks of pencil-bean proton radiation therapy to his brain and spine. Through all of this, Coulter amazed us daily by keeping his smile and frequently saying encouraging words like "a family that prays together stays together" and "don't give up". February 6, 2015 (a day before his 7th birthday), Coulter went in for his 18 month cancer free check-up and the MRI showed at least 5 new brain tumors and a large tumor in his lumbar spine. Despite the fact that Coulter has no deficits and is seemingly healthy, his treatment options are very limited this time because of the rapid growth and spread of this extremely aggressive and rare cancer called an anaplastic ependymoma. Please pray for the full miraculous healing of Coulter.
Please share this with everyone you feel would like to help pray for this amazing little boy!
