Norberto Jr was a healthy 19 year old young man; an ambitious college student majoring in computer technology. During his spare time he enjoyed golfing, fishing, playing video games, cooking and especially loved spending and enjoying time with his family.
Norberto developed continued back pain for about a month and then subsequently became paralyzed from chest down. He underwent emergency surgery followed by inpatient rehabilitation for three weeks. The pathology report and further work ups revealed a diagnosis of primary PNET (Ewing Sarcoma) of the thoracic spine. This cancer is extremely rare and carries a very poor prognosis. He died suddenly two and a half months after his initial diagnosis from a massive pulmonary emboli.
Our family knows how difficult the financial and time commitment requirements are that are inevitable for both the families and their child with cancer. We just want to do our part to help by alleviating part of that burden for families who find themselves in the same situation. We are doing this in memory and in honor of our beloved son Norberto Vazquez Jr.
