Mom, Son Battle Cancer Together with Inspiration and Teamwork

December 16, 2013

Perry Family

For the Perry family, Christmas this year will be a little different, reports. The festivities will not be held at Grandma’s house, or at home in Nashua, NH, but in a hospital room at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s where Owen, 12, is receiving treatment for acute myeloid leukemia.

His mother, Karen, has just finished treatment for ovarian cancer. The family is coping with strength, humor and optimism.

The Boston Globe, Nashua Telegraph, Lowell Sun and Valley Dispatch also covered the story.
