My Story

“Paige, a tiny flower lent, not given … to bud on earth but blossom in heaven” On July 3rd 1995, at the urging of a friend, I took Paige to the hospital to have tests run on her stomach in an attempt to find an explanation for her distended belly. Following a simple ultrasound, Paige was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma. Our healthy, high spirited, beautiful daughter was terminally ill. Although we were urged to take her home and make her comfortable for what little time she had left, that was not an option and the race to save her life began. We left South West Florida the next morning to seek treatment at Yale Children’s Hospital in New Haven CT. Paige was accepted into a research program with adult regiments of daily chemo therapy, radiation and surgery to 1st shrink and then remove a tumor the size of two softballs in her abdomen. On July 14th, 1996 Paige lost her battle. In the years since, treatment has improved but there is still no known cure for this disease that accounts for over 15% of all deaths in children today. I pray that with your help, a cure will be found so that others will not have to the loss of their precious children to this disease. Thank you, Shelley Naser
