When Jim and Deana Cavan welcomed their son Everett into the world last April, they knew he would change their lives forever. What they didn’t realize was just how much their first-born child, who is currently fighting for his life in a Boston hospital, could teach them about courage, resiliency, hope and the human spirit. Nine-month-old “Rett” has been battling a rare and serious form of pediatric cancer after a rhabdoid tumor was discovered on his liver last fall.
