Santiago was immediately admitted into the hospital to begin treatment. He went from battling to the end zone on the football field to battling his for his life from a hospital bed. Unable to leave the hospital for the next 6 months, Santiago began intensive treatments consisting of high doses of chemotherapy and steroids, blood transfusions, platelets, respiratory therapy, regular scans, shots, and daily medications. Due to the tumor on his spine, he lost all feeling in his legs and had to relearn to work through physical therapy. He had allergic reaction to his treatment, battled Shingles across his face, and experienced many physical side effects which are still effecting his health today.
Santiago has a passion for architecture and enjoys everything about science and technology. He plans to turn that interest into a job by studying Drafting and Design in college and pursuing a career as an Architectural Engineer. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his younger sister Sophie and watching Steven Spielberg movies. He is looking forward to going back to school this fall and living a “normal” high school life.
Santiago‘s survivorship is an opportunity to honor those who continue to fight, and those who've lost their life to childhood cancer.
