Marcelino “Boo” Arbuckle is a 5 year old Kindergartener student at Webster Elementary School was diagnosed with Desmoid Fibromatosis which is a rare cancer that affects small children with tumors that are 100% cancer. He was sent to Riley’s Children’s Hospital for chemo and after 7 weeks of chemo therapy the doctor realized the lump was taking over his air ways and the chemo had to be stopped. They had found that the chemo had actually been feeding the tumor causing it to grow at a more rapid rate. On October 4th he underwent surgery to have a breathing tube put in place as well as a feeding tube. Currently he is undergoing radiation in Bloomington.
