Doctors initially hoped the white spot on Jack Hoffman’s latest MRI was nothing.

But a follow-up test provided a different answer than the one his parents had been praying for all summer. The 8-year-old’s inoperable brain tumor had grown.

The little boy who has become a beloved member of Husker Nation renewed his fight against pediatric brain cancer earlier this month.

Jack and his mom, Brianna, traveled to Boston last week to start treatment at the Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center.
