Cade Wegener’s story is nothing short of a miracle. In October 2015, the young boy, who also has Down syndrome, was diagnosed with a rare kind of cancer called undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma.
“[It] dropped a pretty big bomb on us and our family and left us with not a whole lot of hope at that point,” dad Chris Wegener told KWTV. There was a tumor on Cade’s spine, and he needed treatment that could leave him walking with a limp for the rest of his life.
While Cade was getting the best medical attention possible, his family looked to their faith to help guide them through this tremendously difficult time.
“I felt God say, ‘Chris, I’m going to heal your son,'” Chris explained through tears. “And that peace came over me, and we’ve had a peace about it ever since.”
Miraculously, just one year later, in October 2016, Cade was completely cancer-free! As you’ll see in the video below, he got to ring a special bell signaling his victory. Earlier in 2016, he was also recognized as an honorary deputy of the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.
Cade was doing great, but in May 2017, doctors found another tumor. He began radiation again, according to NewsOK — but he’s doing it all with a smile on his face. “He finds joy in the smallest things,” his dad told NewsOK. “If a kid can joke with the nurses while getting chemo, that’s a special kid.”
