Fighting Childhood Cancer.
Neuroblastoma (nb) is the most common cancer in infants, with only a 60% survival rate.
These are the stories of some of the warriors we’re in this fight for.
Our perfectly happy, healthy toddler had a sudden painless limp which rapidly progressed into debilitating pain and a trail of various misdiagnoses. By Thursday, November 18, 2010, the world crashed down upon us as answers came and the word cancer arrived in our lives accompanying our child’s name.
The Lantz family lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where Caroline is beating neuroblastoma at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, on one of the Beat Childhood Cancer clinical trials.
Caden is doing great at school, playing with friends, and learning new sports. And, most importantly, evidence of his cancer has not returned. We are so thankful for trials such as this that have given us hope!
