My Story

Noah was never a sick child, so when he started having headaches and throwing up every day we knew something was not right. We took him to the doctor for several months and they treated him for everything from constipation to acid reflux. Never would I have imagined he had a brain tumor! When his eye turned in and he was seeing double vision, we took him to an eye doctor who told us he needed an MRI right away. He scheduled the MRI the next day and by that night Noah was admitted to the hospital. The doctor successfully removed the tumor on July 16, 2007. Noah had a high risk Medulloblastoma with anaplastic features. He was sent to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. where he was treated with 3 rounds of induction chemo, 30 days of radiation to the brain and spine, and 3 rounds of high dose chemo with stem cell rescue. He has been in remission since January 2008. He has scans every 3 months and all have remained clear.
