Just a quick update we know we have not posted in a little while we have been busy. Sawyer completed his 3rd round of his combination therapy and it went very well. He came home and started going about his regular routine. He went back to school and was playing with his friends. This week (10/15) he started his 4th cycle he has been doing well he has had no fevers thus far and his pain is being managed very well. He will being having scans again on October 31st and November 1st. If the scans are looking good he will then be starting the first of his two stem cell transplants in the following weeks. We will have more information after the scans.
This past weekend Jeremy and I were honored to be asked to attend and share our story at a fundraiser for the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF). This wonderful organization was started by Pat Tallungan and her family after her son Nick was diagnosed at the age of 6 and lost his battle with Neuroblastoma at the age of 10. Since then they have been working tirelessly to fund research that helps find a cure for Neuroblastoma. CNCF also funds an Annual Parent and Caregiver Education Conference where parents can meet with leading researchers to discuss the new advances in Neuroblastoma research. If you are able please consider donating to this worthwhile foundation. A link is under our donate page.
Thank you as always for reading and please continue to keep Sawyer and our family in your prayers and intentions.
Until next time.
