My son was diagnosed with a rare and very difficult to resect cancerous spinal cord tumor at 21 months old. He was only given a 10% chance of survival and would most likely be paralyzed. No doctors wanted to take his case. Because of Dr. Boggan's skills, knowledge, and compassion, my son is now 9 and playing his 3rd year of little league. Dr. Bogan is truly an angel. We owe him so much. He is forever in our hearts. Thank you thank you for giving my son life.
