My Story

On November 23rd, 2012, Brooklyn was admitted to Kosair Children’s Hospital with a tumor located on one of her kidneys. After further tests, it was determined that the mass was Stage IV Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer. Chemotherapy to shrink the tumor as much as possible began the following week. On March 20th, 2013, Brooklyn underwent a 10 hour surgery to remove the remainder of the tumor. Following surgery she underwent two more rounds of chemotherapy, and in May Brooklyn had a stem cell transplant using her own stem cells that had been extracted following her second round of chemo. Following a successful surgery, Brooklyn had her sixth and final round of Chemotherapy, and several rounds of Radiation and five rounds of Immunotherapy. December 6th marks Brooklyn's final day of hospitalized treatment; her final round of Immunotherapy will be taken at home. On January 31, 2014, all of Brooklyn's scans (CT, MRI, MIBG, Bone scan, and bilateral bone marrow aspirates) came back clean, clear, and negative for disease. She will have a minor, outpatient surgery in a few weeks to have her central line removed.
