Toy tractors and chemotherapy - normal part of life for Garfield 4-year-oldAustin Baune is a typical 4-year-old boy who loves tractors and skid loaders and playing in the dirt. He’s curious and busy and talkative and loves the outdoors. But there are things about Austin that are different from other boys his age. He tires easily, his feet sometimes don’t work properly, and he knows how to flush a medical port. Austin suffers from acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the blood and bone marrow.
