When Tucker Haas was 2, doctors diagnosed him with a rare form of cancer called sarcoma (soft tissue tumor). Early on, his prognosis was optimistic; however, after his first of three relapses, it became touch and go. One hospital gave him no hope for survival.
Haas, now 9, underwent several surgeries (one removing a rib), a stem cell transplant and numerous rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. He has been cancer free for nearly three years.
