Team rides in Pan Mass Challenge in thanks for son's cancer remission

But Ethan and Eliot are still brothers.

“You would think there would be world peace in this house, but there is not,” said Lent with a laugh. “We bring it up occasionally, just as a reminder to be nice to each other, but it doesn’t change too much on a daily basis. I think, as they grow, they’ll look back, but I don’t know.”

Of having her son back, Lent said, “I can’t express it in words. You just feel like you’re completely blessed and fortunate. Because when we were in the hospital, they give us these odds. Even after the successful transplant, the doctor said 50 percent. So, you think you’re out of the woods and you’re not.

Another boy we were in with, he left a couple weeks before we did and I talked to his mom a few weeks later and his cancer was back. He didn’t make it. I get to keep my son. She gets to lose her son. So you’re faced with that. You’re faced with the fact that other families have lost their kids and your heart breaks for them.”
