Balancing Care with Busy Boyhood


It’s been more than seven years since Cole Rossi was cured of a rare brain cancer. The tumor and therapy left him with double vision, physical weakness and low levels of growth hormone. To keep Cole as healthy as possible, his doctors at Packard Children’s continue his hormone treatment and have him come in for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans twice a year. Cole sees an oncologist every six months and a neurologist every other year.

When he’s not at Packard Children’s, Cole’s days are filled with school, piano lessons, art and his favorite activity, working with a physical trainer. “He never complains about his condition,” says his mom, Linda. “He’s too busy enjoying life.”
