My Story

Luke was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma just 3 weeks after his 5th birthday. He underwent tumor resection, chemotherapy, stem cell transplant, radiation, antibody therapy, and a chemotherapy study. He had no evidence of disease for 2 years & off treatment for 6 months.  At his 9 month post treatment scans his cancer had relapsed & he went back in treatment.  After another 2 rounds of antibody therapy & 2 rounds of MIBG therapy, he once again had no evidence of disease.  Luke was on maintenance medications & chemotherapy to prevent a second relapse but his 9 month scans once again showed the cancer was back 3 weeks before his 10th birthday.  After 2 more rounds of antibody therapy Luke once again had no evidence of disease!  He is currently scheduled for 4 more rounds of antibody therapy with scans to follow.  If those scans remain clear the fight will continue with some type of therapy to prevent a third relapse.  LukeStrong!
