Support for Javier and Team Tecuatl
The support and love that has been extended to the Tecuatl family from our All Saints Catholic Academy school community is truly inspiring. Javier graduated from All Saints in 2015 (sister Ashlee is currently in 6th grade). Javier Tecuatl is a typical 17 year old high school student. He is a junior at Wheaton-Warrenville South High School. He enjoys learning, especially math class, and dreams of one day becoming a doctor. Javier is a member of his school’s football, wrestling, and track and field teams. Like many teens, he has a part time job (Dunkin Donuts) and dreams of fancy cars. He helps his dad around the house, assists with translating and communicating for his parents, looks out for his little sister, Ashlee, and cheers on the Chicago Cubs and Bears.
Everything changed a couple of months ago when Javier was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Three of four childhood cancers are classified as ALL (American Cancer Society). It is a cancer of the bone marrow, blood, and white blood cells. This diagnosis was a dramatic change in the life of the Tecuatls. The family discovered his condition when he continued to come home tired and with headaches. Mom insisted they go to Central DuPage Hospital where Javier was diagnosed. He is anticipated to have three to four years of chemotherapy treatment. He has already started receiving treatments via a port. Javier continues to stay upbeat and positive when he can, maintaining his “rock of the family” outlook. Because of the treatment needed and his depleted immune system, Javier is not anticipated to return to school this year.
