Journey 1:9

Meet Lincoln

Lincoln was diagnosed in September 2017 with stage four neuroblastoma after a a few weeks of crying with leg pain and limping. The cancer was in his bone marrow 100% and he had lesions on nearly all of his bones.  

 

He did 6 rounds of chemotherapy in Wisconsin before we transferred care to Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC. He did 24 sessions of radiation and 7 rounds of painful immunotherapy. On June 4th we celebrated no evidence of disease.

 

Unfortunately two short months later he relapsed with 5 new lesions, which we are currently in treatment for. Lincoln has endured countless pokes, endless days of nausea, and more pain than any adult I know.

 

He is our hero! His faith in God inspires everyone around him and his sunny smile lights up our world.  

Lincoln's battle here on earth ended on September 19th, 2019 and he ran into the arms of Jesus.

because

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.
