Nathan was diagnosed at 6 years old on 9/5/2016 with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma. He did 6 rounds of chemo, surgery, stem cell transplant, and 6 rounds of immunotherapy and reached remission in September of 2017.
In December of 2017 his scans revealed that Nathan had relapsed. He had surgery, radiation, and immunotherapy and reached remission again in June 2018. Nathan's scan in January 2019 revealed that he has relapsed again.
The doctors have told us we are out of options in the state for him and we are now going to be traveling to Texas for treatment.
Nathan has a very positive attitude and has always said he's going to kick cancer's butt. He is enjoying time right now with his brothers and friends while he still feels good.
Our beautiful 22 month old daughter Gabrielle was officially diagnosed with high-risk stage 4 Neuroblastoma Dec 2018.
She has two large tumors in her abdomen, near her liver and kidney, as well as 5-6 smaller tumors in her lungs, several tumors beneath her lungs and a bone lesion on her right temple. After more testing we found out Neuroblastoma had spread throughout her entire body.
We have searched and searched for success stories that start out like ours, just to have some hope to cling to. For now, we are fighting this Neuroblastoma with everything we’ve got. There is hope. Thank you all for lifting us up in prayer and rooting for our beautiful daughter. This community has been a light on our darkest days.
Gabby loves dinosaurs, all animals especially her dogs and time at home with her family.
emery inspired a rebellion
She was small but she was fierce.
Emery was only 2 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer, not just cancer but Stage 4 Neuroblastoma with the odds stacked against her from day one.
She fought more bravely than any child ever should, but the available treatments failed her.
Now we fight back. This foundation was created to save and support kids with Neuroblastoma - in memory of Emery.
We must change this.
