Neuroblastoma (nb) is the most common cancer in infants, with only a 60% survival rate. These are stories of neuroblastoma warriors. We’re fighting to beat nb.
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.
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!
Grayson Dragon Hernandez
Grayson is one of the sweetest, happiest babies you have ever seen. He is now 14 1/2 months old and doing beautifully. He is still way off the growth chart but he has grown all his hair back and is meeting his benchmarks. He is a remarkable little boy.
Malia, like all children diagnosed with this awful disease, has shown an unbelievable strength and willpower throughout her treatment. We are thankful for every single day we get with our beautiful daughter!
She danced and smiled through 15 months of intense treatment, consisting of 6 rounds of chemotherapy, countless surgical procedures, an autologous stem cell transplant, radiation, and 6 cycles of immunotherapy.
Sofia Isabella is a fierce and spunky little girl. Her personality and her eyes are what make her unique and special. She is an angel of God and loved by all, including her brother, Aiden (“Bubba” to her).
Tessa is a beautiful little girl with stage 4 neuroblastoma. She’s been battling for 3 and a half years straight, all across the country. Tessa and her family hail from Detroit.
After being off of all treatment for over 3 years he is attending middle school, playing hockey and lacrosse and doing all the things we could have only dreamed about when he was just 2 and ‘incurable’.
